PU panel suggestions flout UGC rules!

Chandigarh, February 20
A Panjab University committee looking into the revision of syllabus and admission criteria to BSc Home Science at Government Home Science College has in its recommendations given suggestions, which seem to flout the University Grants Commission (UGC) regulations.

The committee headed by the then DUI, Prof Veer Singh, has upheld and reiterated a set of recommendations made by the Board of Studies on the issue.

The UGC guidelines state that in the teaching of undergraduate home science courses there should be 45 per cent teaching of core subjects and 55 per cent home science courses. However, under the proposed system there will be only 25 per cent teaching of core subjects and 74 per cent teaching of home science subjects.

The recommendations will also lead to the reduction of teaching hours at Government Home Science College to just 4.5 hours a day and the reduction of periods per week from 52 to 16. Presently, the science courses are assigned a total of 800 marks, which will be reduced to 400 marks.

Interestingly, a section of teachers at the college are also likely to be affected by the new recommendations because of the gross dilution of the syllabus. The PU Vice-Chancellor, Prof R.C. Sobti, had spoken against this “dilution” in the last meeting of the syndicate held in December 2006.

Sources also pointed out that the recommendations of the board were to be routed through the Academic Council of the university but instead these had been sent directly to the PU syndicate. Now again the recommendations of the committee instead of being routed through the council were being taken up for consideration in the forthcoming meeting of the syndicate to be held on February 23.

Reviving Odissi musical tradition
Aditi Tandon
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, February 20
Despite a celebrated history, Odissi musical tradition remains an obscurity. Traced back to the second century when the then ruler of Orissa (Kalinga) patronised the art form, it never really could muster the attention it deserved. So much so that the state government has had to step in to rescue a tradition which, in fact, is older than Odissi dance. But while Odissi dance found a winning patronage in dancers like Sonal Mansingh and gurus like Kelucharan Mahapatra, Odissi music kept languishing on the fringes.

Only now it has been hand picked for selective nourishment by the Orissa Government. Meeting the challenge on the government’s behalf is Guru Ramhari Das, the finest exponent of a lost custom. As head of the Odissi Research Centre at Bhubaneshwar, Guru Ramhari Das is now reviving Odissi musical tradition, whose references are even found in Bharat Muni’s “Natya Shastra.” “At that time, Odissi cultural tradition was called Odra Mugadhi. It literally means a style of dance and music that belongs to Odra or Orissa. Most of our music is born out of mythology, mainly the Geeta Govinda, which is still rendered at the Jagannath Temple. The tradition’s greatest limitation is the Oriya language, which is naturally very hard to understand.”

But now, the Odissi Research Centre is undertaking activities to promote traditional Odissi music, which is purely classical in nature. Sangeeta Gosain, a famous singer back in the state and a faculty of the Centre says, “Odissi music is a lot more lyrical as compared to Hindustani or Carnatic. Just like these two forms, it has its typical feel, its unique identity. It is raga-based and is very old. The compositions of “Charya Geetika” (poems of Buddhist literature) which we sing were written in the 7th century. Even the 12 ragas which Jayadeva used in the Geeta Govinda had been applied way back in the Charyu Geetika. There is huge evidence in our rock edicts to support the ancient origins of Odissi classical music, which we are promoting through CDs, research projects and tours now.”

Both Guru Ramhari Das and Sangeeta Gosain will present the lesser known aspects of Odissi music at Law Bhavan auditorium in Sector 37 tomorrow. Accompanying them will be Raghunath Panigrahi, better half of the legendary dancer Sanjukta Panigrahi, who passed away some time back. For his part, Raghunath Panigrahi is still fostering his wife’s memory by training the interested youngsters in Odissi music. But he regrets the lack of following. “No one has the patience to learn. I and Sanjukta devoted 30 years to music and dance. But today no one seems interested. I am eager to give away my knowledge, but there are no takers.”

It’s this void the Orissa government is trying to fill. No wonder it has sent its representative Sharat Mahapatra with the troupe of 25 singers and dancers who will perform in Chandigarh tomorrow. As Secretary, Culture, Orissa, Mahapatra is here to judge the success of the tour, which has been sponsored by Pracheen Kala Kendra.



'Inder ka Vardaan' staged at Tagore Theatre 
Our Correspondent

Chandigarh, February 20
The Theatre for Theatre group in association with the Oriental Bank of Commerce staged a satirical play “Inder ka Vardaan” at Tagore Theatre, here, yesterday to commemorate the 65th foundation day of the bank.

Replete with the incisive criticism of the growing disparity between various segments of society, political hypocrisy and human relationships, the play was as didactic as humorous. The original Marathi play, aptly translated into Hindi by Rajender Mehta and Ramesh Hans, was further subjected to certain aberrations to include contemporary issues.

The superb direction and captivating acting spells of director Sudesh Sharma kept the packed hall of intrusive audience glued to their seats.

Presented in the traditional “nautanki” theatrical form, the director borrowed the supernatural and mythological themes to bring alive the thematic essence of the play.

The earthen potter, Kalu, visiting the heavenly abode of God Indra and Chitrasen Gandharav earning the wrath of Indra only to be condemned to lead a life of a donkey. But, blessed with the supernatural powers of Chitrasen and groomed by Kallu potter, the donkey is again transformed as a prince after he marries the princess.

The story, enlivened by an accomplished set of actors, leaves a lot for the imagination and curiosity of the audience. Sudesh Sharma, Yogesh Aroa, Shivinder, Bhavana, Kanchan Gupta and Naresh Bhagat excelled in their roles.

Earlier, the chief guest Atul Gutam, General Manager, Oriental Bank of Commerce, reiterated the bank's resolve to promote the meaningful theatre in the region. Noted thespian Parvesh Sethi conducted the proceedings.



Neelam talks about her experiments with theatre
Our Correspondent

Chandigarh, February 20
The Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi in association with the Government Museum and Art Gallery organised an interactive visual lecture by Neelam Mansingh, a theatre personality of national eminence, at the museum auditorium here.

The talk, “My Theatre - My World,” offered an overview of her personal experiments with the theatre, its contemporary perspectives and radical performances. A theatre, loyal to its language, people, social realities and indebted to the rich memories, images and symbols of the people, as also worthy of communication with the present could be the ideal theatre form capable of catering to the society, she said.

Neelam Mansingh moved to the “City Beautiful” during 1984 when the life in general around was at a critical juncture not at all beautiful but her passion for theatre never slowed. An intellectual and avid theatre person, she felt, conceived and attempted to translate the soul of rural Punjab into her plays, which touched the right chord of the theatre buffs starving for the meaningful theatre.

Relying upon her long experience and expertise as an academician and thespian, she delved deep to illustrate the perceptions, constraints and future of the Indian theatrical arts.

She elaborated her role as a director in crafting and embellishing any play with brilliance.
