"Rahu perhaps was their ancient ancestor. The magic wand made of Rahu’s bone was their mysterious source of power, which created enchantment and sorcery. The Bajikars were one such wandering race. In a few villages of northern part of Bengal a few gypsies still fight to establish themselves as peasant man. Time gradually obscures memory. The new generation does not perhaps know that they might have originally belonged to a territory of northern or western part of India where they had a separate language and alien rituals, systems and habits. Shariba collects the past of the Bajikars from... View more info

Introduction to Bharata's Natyasastra

Edition: Reprint

Seller ID: 015046

Bharata's Natyasastra, the earliest treatise on dramatics, is, even today, the origin of our dramatic tradition. Besides being the most important study of dramatics, it is also the most comprehensive. The all-inclusive quality, however, creates problems for the reader who has to go through a great deal of unnecessary information. In his Introduction to Bharata's Natyasastra, the author has culled all information essential and relevant to drama, eliminating the superfluous. Eschewing attempt to provide any kind of a scholarly or original interpretation of Bharata's views, the author has focused... View more info

The Natyasastra is probably one of the earliest and certainly one of the best treatises on Indian Dramaturgy. At the same time, the book available now is not an early one but may be as late as the seventh or eighth century AD. The authorship is traditionally ascribed to Bharata, the Sage. The eminence of Natyasastra is not that it was the first book on the subject but that it was the first comprehensive treatise on Dance, Drama and Music. Like the Mahabharata, Natyasastra too boasts that "What is found here may be found elsewhere. But what is not here cannot be found anywhere". To conf... View more info

The book 'Sastric Tradition in Indian Classical Dances' focuses on textual tradition of performing arts (in the context of dance only). The rules pertaining to the fourfold Abhinaya in Natyasastra and other Sanskrta Laksana Granthas are correspondingly imperative and valid for all the classical dance forms even today. It is well known that our youngsters are much comfortable with English and for them Sanskrta appears to be an alien language, similar is the case with Rajabhasa Hindi. Keeping this in mind and for the benefit of non-Hindi speaking readers and researchers of India and abroad the p... View more info

One of the most popular and widely performed dance styles in India and around the world, bharata natyam has made the transition from its beginnings in the temples and courts of southern India to a highly respected international dance practice. In this study of a classical dance form, author Janet O'Shea tracks the choreographic transformations that accompanied the transfer of bharata natyam to the urban concert stage in the 1930s and 1940s. At Home in the World situates these changes within the political debates of their time and ties the concerns of this period to present- day practice. The h... View more info

Although authoritative expositions of Indian music, painting, sculpture etc are available in English, no adequate treatise has so far appeared dealing with the art of Indian dancing. Mr Iyer`s book on Kathakali has to a great extent supplied this long-felt want, dealing as it does with one important and perhaps the most unique school of Indian dancing. Apart from the fact that the book is a veritable mine of information on the subject, hitherto unavailable, it is a graphic evocation of an art-form which is yet a living tradition of the people of Malabar on the western coast of India.

The Classical Dance and Costumes of India by Kay Ambrose steers clear of the twin evils of writing: the learned writing for the learned and the dilettante writing for others of his class. It treats the four classical schools of Indian dance—Bharata Natyam, Kathakali, Kathak and Manipuri—with understanding and objectivity. The reader is provided with a sketch of Indian mythology and music before he is exposed to the dance proper, which are presented in such a manner that none will experience any difficulty in learning the divine and mundane aspects of these schools of dance.

Hailed as a Shakespearean play, written a few centuries before shakespeare, Sudraka's Mrichchhakatika is one of the most significant Sanskrit dramas for more than a few reasons. Set in the ancient city of Ujjayani, Mrichchhakatika is "rife with romance, comedy, intrigue and a political subplot detailing the overthrow of the city's despotic ruler by a shepherd, [and] is notable among extant Sanskrit drama for its focus on a fictional scenario rather than on a classical tale or legend.
