13th July 2017Indira Gandhi National Centre For the arts-Regional Centre Ranchi & Ranchi University organising an Illustrated Lecture on Santhal Oral Tradition & its cultural aspects.  Abstract of Lecture – The Santhal Oral Tradition and Its Cultural Aspects.This Presentation attempts to closely analyze the oral traditions on santhal indigenous group and its value in understanding their culture.Culture can be reconstructed through various means such as archaeological remains, written texts and oral tradition. India has a legacy of oral tradition from vedas to mantras everything was oral and aural sruti and slokas. The santhals have no written scripture or documents on their religious belief and culture. So, in the absence of text are they to be considered people without history? No. this paper argues against such a reductionism. Though they have no written documents they are quite rich in oral traditions and a variety of genres such as Kahni (Stories), Kudum (Riddles) , Siring (Songs), Rar (Raga) , bentakatha (Euphemism), Menkatha(Idiom), Gidrabauli (Lullaby),Binti(Prayers), Bakher (Chanting of Hymns) etc can be seen . Oral tradition can be understood better as the phase of socital evolution. It is in intangible in nature and is a very abstract form of knowledge passed from generation to generation through word of mouth often through mother to daughter , father to son and so on so forth. In the absence of the written script oral tradition has been the only medium to preserve the knowledge and history of Santhals. This Talks would unfold santhal culture in its numerous dimensions such as religious belief, social system, mural art, songs, ragas, dance etc. Venue:- Audrey House Ranchi  Time: 2.30 PM onwards

  • 17th July 2014Christel Pilz will present a photo composition on KAILASH TEMPLE at Ellora. The Kailash Temple complex at Ellora is a wonder for the word because of being cut out of a single piece of rock from top to bottom and open to the sky. The presentation explores many contours of the temple, including the geo-location, the cultural/religious significance of the temple which is part of Ellora. Going deep into the history and mystery of the temple she has reached more questions than answers- Maharshi Valmiki and Vyasa sitting at the entrance, angels all over flying with garlands, the vaulted barrel structures, the kalashas, lion-like animals called sharduls at the top , guarding the temple and fighting with elephants. Is there any parallel of these barrel type to the arc of the covenant and of the Kalashas to the Holy Grail?’ The technology of rock cutting looks amazing as an in depth study has confirmed that there are no chisel marks at certain parts of the temple. The whole Kailash temple awaits multi-disciplinary research.     Venue: IGNCA Lecture Room,11 Mansingh Road, New Delhi 110 001     Time: 4.00 p.m.

  • 28th March 2014 – Lecture by Sunandan K Sen, Associate Professor, Department of Linguistics, Calcuta University will lecture on ‘The use of Substantive Verbs in Bengali Language’    Venue: Lecture Room, 11, Mansingh Road, New Delhi  at 04:30PM.

    Abstract:  In descriptive grammar the word substantive denotes a class of words primarily noun as ‘substances’ i.e. names of persons, places, things etc. Substantive verb on the other hand can be defined as set of verbs that denotes an affirmation or existence in opposite to negative verb that denotes negation. In Bengali as like many other languages of the world there is a superfluity of substantive verbs. In Bengali the three main substantive verbs are [hɔ/ ho] ‘to be’ , [ach] ‘is/are’ and [thak] ‘to remain’. Among these three verbs the second one is a defective verb in Bengali. Because the verb root [ach] is not conjugated in all tenses and moods. The verb [ach] has no future form in Bengali and it is neither conjugated in imperative mood. The scope of this paper is to show their use in syntactic level in Bengali where these verbs does not always have the role of substantive verb because of shift of semantic connotation.
