Great Master Series – Ustad Fahimuddin Khan Dagar

Produced by IGNCA
Duration: 1 hours 20 minutes

Ustad Fahim-ud-din Khan Daggar was the renowned Drupad performer. In an interactive session with Dr. S.K Saxena, the well-known musicologist explains, with the help of demonstrations, the various stages of performing Drupad. He explains its meaning, objectives, elements and nuance. Alap- the initiation aims at bringing out the specific traits of the raga. Music has its own grammar, and Fahim-du-din explains the basic concepts and language of music. Every ‘raga’ has its own ‘muqam’ or position. The Raga Bhairava is an obeisance to sun, a tribute to light. But it has no words, because, ‘Sur’ can’t tolerate the burden of words. He further says that ‘Vidya’ or knowledge is necessary, but one must have a guru, a teacher. Riyaz or practice is important, but dedication is all the more important. Music is search for solace, whereas poetry appeals to emotion. This interactive DVD prepared under the Great Master Series presents deeper understanding of classical Indian music – the Sastriya Sangita.

Kala : A Multimedia Presentation on Time

Director: Bappa Ray
Duration: 27 minutes 19 seconds

The film documents an epoch making exhibition organized by IGNCA called “Kala” where one enters the state of timelineness that lies un-manifest. Then after blinking of the eyelid to the movement of the sun, the duration, sequence and movement of time are understood. The astrological linkage of time and notion about the space within the celestial bodies form another highlight of the “Kala” theme. The film documents the cosmic elements portrayed through concept of manifest, evolving from un-manifest to the level of paintings and portrayals. Alongside, it depicts duration of time in a day through the sundial. It also reflects upon various symbols of iconography and architecture and image and imagination of cosmic tree to understand the symbolizing the passage of time including Swastika. Thus the film in short highlights holistic vision of time and space starting its journey from un-manifestation state to its ever evolving manifestive dimensions within the content and context of time and space.

Manifesting the Faith Divine celebration on the Ghats of Varanasi

Varanasi– the holy city situated on the banks of river Ganga , the most sacred river for Hindus- is the city of knowledge , the city of Lord Shiva ,the city that celebrates both life as well as death. The documentary has presented the spectacular scenes of manifestation of faith on the ghats of Ganga, the river that has never changed its course and is worshipped as a Goddess. Some rituals or customs may seem to be illogical or irrational, but it is faith that sustains the people and gives a meaning to these. The surprising part may be the women celebrating the marriage of Saligram- black stone with Tulsi, a herb. But Saligram represents God Vishnu and Tulsi, the holy herb, stands for Vrinda, the great devotee who had achieved spiritual strength because of her piety & meditation. It is god Vishnu who ordains that she would be worshipped as the herb Tulsi and her symbolic marriage with Saligram is celebrated every year. Have a bath in Ganga and get your sins washed off. If you want to be successful in life, then offer prayers for five days – Bhism Panchak – in remembrance of the great warrior of Mahabharata, Bhism Pitamaha, who lay on a bed of arrows during the last five days of his life to fulfill his pledge. All great saints and holy men, Buddha, Guru Nanak, Adi Shankaracharya, Kabir, Tulsidas, Ravidas have made their journey to this place.

Wangla - A Garo Festival

The lineage of the Garo people of Western Meghalaya goes back to Tibet. The Garo hills are interspersed with patches of low-lying plains bordering Assam and Bangladesh. The life of Garos revolves around the Sun God, who rules their Jhum or shifting cultivation, and envelops the dynamics of their life ways. The Wangla festival of the Garos is the time for celebrating the bounty and well-being, bestowed by Sun God. It is the time to rejoice; time to choose the Bride and the Groom; and the time for young persons to mingle freely. The films place the life and times of Garos in the background of their traditional philosophy and belief systems, and provides a mirror to the Garo mindscape.
