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.

Keeping this in mind and for the benefit of non-Hindi speaking readers and researchers of India and abroad the p... View more info

Every region/community of the world has its share of oral creativity, in varying measures though, and, accordingly, has its own legacy of "chanted narratives": epical, historical, mythical, romantic or even ritualistic. Such narratives have long survived in the collective memory of its people, having been handed down from generation to generation. Confronted, however, by the "cornucopian techno-centrism" of today's life, these oral narratives are on their way out everywhere - like many other vibrant cultural phenomena.Highlighting why we need to preserve this intangible herita...
