17th July 2014 - Christel Pilz will present a photo composition on KAILASH TEMPLE at Ellora

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’

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.
