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.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
