The Mahabharata in the tribal and Folk Traditions of India.
Description

About the Book:

The Anthropological Survey of India undertook tow projects on Rama-katha and the Mahabharata in the tribal and folk traditions of India. The seminar on the Mahabharata was held at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study in collaboration with the Anthropological Survey of India and Himachal Kala Sanskriti avam Bhasha Academy. A number of papers were presented by scholars, out of which 25 papers have been selected for presentation in this volume. They deal with the adaptation of the Mahabharata story to the historical situation and cultural specificities of various regions of India, its impact on performing arts, literature, etc.

The Mahabharata is truly the story of India, of its communities which have linked themselves to the epic traditions in their own way. The diffusion of Mahabharata traditions and their adaptation and recreation in various situations is a continuing process, a matter of absorbing interest. It demonstrates the inherent resilience and dynamism of the civilization processes in the country.

Testimonials

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.
