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.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
