Concept of Dance in Classical Sanskrit Literature
Concept of Dance in Classical Sanskrit Literature
Description

From the Jacket:

The rich tradition of Sanskrit literature reveals the most sublime and brightest aspects of Indian culture. Dance and drama have always played a vital role in the development of art traditions and we have a long history of sustained growth of these arts. The valuable research work by Dr. Hegde presents a sound analysis of the perspective of Abhinaya evinced in Sanskrit drama. The author had given authentic references to the techniques of performance. The graphs and figures of hand-postures, eye-gestures, steps etc. provided in the last chapter of this book have enhanced its value as a reference work for the study of dance-techniques and their interrelation with Sanskrit literature.

Testimonials

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!
Pablo, Germany
I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
