Book Excerpt :

Plausibly the greatest Sanskrit maestro, Mahakavi Kalidas wrote Abhigyan Shakuntalam nearly 2,500 years ago. This immortal love story is also the bedrock foundation of India's rich socio-cultural edifice. The story has been described in the form of a play. The dialogues are full of romance, thrill and zest for life. Two young persons-Dushyant and Shakuntala -fall in love with each other in the lap of nature. Then comes separation. Finally, they unite, thanks to the ring that is found by a fisherman under the most weird circumstances. This ring was given by Dushyant to Shakuntala and lost by the latter. A love tale has never been so finely described by any other Sanskrit scholar. Kalidas was one of the navratnas of emperor Vikramaditya. He has used fine Sanskrit verses to push the story ahead at a fast pace. Dialogues are terse, in context with the story and heart-piercing, especially the romantic ones between Shakuntala and Dushyant. This classical play has been staged in various parts of the world. It has also been translated in many global languages. Centuries after it was created, it still remains an enthralling piece of literary perfection. Abhigyan Shakuntalam is literary perfection! It tells us about our origin which was a fine, pleasant dream woven in the lap of mythology. A must-read for all reader genres!

Book Short Summary:

Hyenas in Town, an anthology of Dr Vikram Singh is an effort to highlight the imminent danger, to life, liberty and property, emerged out of growing unsocial behaviour of men against the Aristotlian belief (man is a social animal). The growing sense of insecurity has made everyone conscious of personal security, which has adversely affected the trust of man. The decline of mutual trust gave opportunity to the antisocial ones to overtake the social ones. Increasing watchmen and security gates of the colonies are not able to control the anti-social animals. The causes of the threat to the common security can not be found in the lapses of the Police. The socio-economic inequality may be treated as one of the reasons but other reasons are also to be searched out in our lapses in bringing up of the children. The poems included in the anthology directly converse with the people, give opportunity to everyone to find his/her own voice, that has made everyone to comprehend with the new streams of poetry, especially the literateurs, critics, readers and students. Dr Vikram Singh (1960) Mainpuri, U.P., recipient of SAHI Award for 1996 and Agyeya Award for 2003 by Uttar Pradesh Hindi Sansthan LKO, is a civil servant of UP 1985 batch. He has also been conferred with Mula Devi Poetry Award for 1997 and honoured with Hindi Bhushan by All India Braj Sahitya Samiti and other different honours on different occasions by different literary & cultural institutions. As an expert honourary member Hindi Advisory Committee, Ministry of External Affairs, Govt. of India. Dr. Singhhas joined various delegations to different countries for the promotion of Hindi and Indian culture. He has traversed England four times, France twice and Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, U.S.A., Trinidad, Tabago and Surinam (once). He has authored two anthologies of poems with the titles Printing Mistake, Lakarbagghe Shahar Mein (Hyenas in Town), Two Travelogues namely, Suraj: Chandani Raat mein (Sun: in Moonl

Book Short Summary:

Folk performances reflect the life-worlds of a vast section of subaltern communities in India. What is the philosophy that drives these performances, the vision that enables as well as enslaves these communities to present what they feel, think, imagine, and want to see? Can such performances challenge social hierarchies and ensure justice in a caste-ridden society? In Cultural Labour, the author studies bhuiyan puja (land worship), bidesia (theatre of migrant labourers), Reshma-Chuharmal (Dalit ballads), dugola (singing duels) from Bihar, and the songs and performances of Gaddar, who was associated with Jana Natya Mandali, Telangana: he examines various ways in which meanings and behaviour are engendered in communities through rituals, theatre, and enactments. Focusing on various motifs of landscape, materiality, and performance, the author looks at the relationship between culture and labour in its immediate contexts. Based on an extensive ethnography and the author’s own life experience as a member of such a community, the book offers a new conceptual framework to understand the politics and aesthetics of folk performance in the light of contemporary theories of theatre and performance studies.
