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.
