self musing

there was Anna Pavlova the great prima dona. in the book written on her it was mentioned that there was a great academy in the russia for ballet, where students were taugth many subjects. and same is followed in London also. However in preset indian system it is lost. But we did have the system earlier in India where the expert dancers were there and they were master of Arts. means they were experts and taught many trades. the art of makeup, art of talking, art of manners, some MAGIC, art of body building, art of cooking, art of decoration, The Subject like Languages, the srciptures, mythology, about culture and people, pshycology, Economics, poetry, for that literature and most important was DANCE and MUSIC.
Then only they could survive in the trade and for all over the centuries the tradition continued and handed over to this time in India. Like Shri Vidya Niwas said once that Oral tradition was followed and in the process many things (wriiten things) were lost, due to unproper upkeep.
We have also read espisode of burning of our Library (and treasure) by the INVADERS, which are known as Conqourers or expeditors or Warriors but they were BRUTAL INVADERS for INDIA. One of my palestine friend always said they came to teach culture and tradition to the junglees of India. Means when they came here in INDIA all people here were JUNGLEE. ( I can not write the word TRIBALSince tribal word is prural and consist of many groups of people and As MANY in India (Free country) may be knowing what the list of tribal is) Tribal groups has its own culture and tradition etc.
Once the word “BARBARIC” tribes was used for these INVADERS, and this is correct for those who invaded INDIA.
SO the system was lost in India. Thanx to Some like RUKMINI DEVI ARUNDALE and KAMALA DEVI CHATOPADHYAY, the BHATKANDHE, PULASKAR who have made conciuos effort to revive and conserve these treasures. The Kalashetra is the only institution of that time which can be creidted for preserving the Bharatnatyam and bringing some prestidge to the art with reforms. The GURU RABINDRA NATH TAGORE is the sole example who has also established the teaching campus or the gurukul. the vishwa Bharti.
after independence there were many efforts in all parts of country to start some schools. BUT Again bieng the followers of the DURBAR politics many artists rushed to the NATIONAL CAPITAL and established their schools.
