Dr Mahesh Joshi

PHED minister Dr Ma-
hesh Joshi on Tuesday
rejected Kirodi Mee-
na’s allegations of cor-
ruption against him
saying that a minister
does not have a role in
the tendering process.
Joshi also said that he
may file a defamation
case against Meena.
“The allegations
against me are totally
baseless. If he has evi-
dence, he should give
it to the CM or to any-
one he wants,” Joshi
said.
He said that being a
minister, he did not
have any role in the
tendering process so
therefore the allega-
tions of Meena against
him were baseless. The
minister said that it has
become the habit of
Meena to level base-
less allegations.
Joshi said that the
advertisements of the
projects under JJM are
made by the consul-
tancy company which
belongs to the central
government. When
asked about the allega-
tion of Meena that the
FIR was not being reg-
istered by police, Joshi
said that it was not his
jurisdiction.

Leader of opposition Ra-
jendra Rathore on Tues-
day accused the Gehlot
government of betraying
with gausahal operators
by not giving them com-
pensation on deaths of
cows due to lumpy dis-
ease. He alleged that the
government has given
compensation of Rs
40,000 per cow to 42,000
cattle rearers while the
figure of deaths due to
lumpy is much higher.
Rathore also said that the
government has refused
to give such compensa-
tion to gaushala opera-
tors, which is a betrayal
with them.
The BJP leader said
that the party will start a
‘Pol-Khol’ campaign
against the Gehlot gov-
ernment in Bikaner on
July 5 while a meeting
will be held in Jhunjhunu
against the betrayal with
farmers on the promise of
loan waiver in the second
week of July.
Rathore also targeted
the state government
over the old pension
scheme. He said that for
taking benefit of the
OPS, the employee will
have to deposit 12% of
the state government’s
contribution along with
interest before July 15.
“If this money is not de-
posited by the employ-
ees, they will not get the
benefit of the Old Pen-
sion Scheme,” Rajendra

The show was created, written,

1987 and 1988 on DD National
and it was narrated
by Ashok Kumar and the
director Ramanand Sagar.
The music was composed
by Ravindra Jain. During its
run, the show became most
watched television series
in the world, it had a
viewership of 82 per cent.
The repeat telecast was aired
on 20 different channels in
17 countries on all the five
continents at different times.
The success of the series was
documented well by the media.
According to BBC, the serial
has been viewed by over 650
million viewers. Each episode
of the series reportedly earned
DD National `40 Lakh.
The show is primarily based
on Valmiki’s Ramayan and
Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas.
Other sources used were:

RAMAYAN
ON DD
ilms or rather
the controversy
regarding India
cinema has
gained quite a
momentum of late. The boycott
gang has been quite active.
However, the film now under
the scanner is Adipurush.
In fact, while making a film
or a serial regarding Ramayana
or Mahabharat, one has to be
extremely sensitive. Remem-
ber how nicely Ramayana was
depicted on Doordarshan in the
Eighties. Forget the special ef-
fects, the content and the sanc-
tity were maintained with ut-
most care. And hence the epics
on the public broadcaster are
still remembered and revered.
Adipurush was already mired
in controversy long before it
was released. If fact since its
inception. In 2021, the Adipu-
rush’s teaser met with criticism
from some Hindu groups who
objected to the portrayal of Lord
Ram and also other characters.
They alleged that the film was
inappropriate and inaccurate
and feared that it would hurt re-
ligious sentiments.
The controversy picked up
pace in 2022, following the
poster’s release. The poster
showed Prabhas as Ram wear-
ing a crown and holding a bow
and arrow. This had led to fur-
ther criticism from the same
groups, who argued that the
crown was not part of Ram’s
traditional attire and that it
made him look like a “king”
rather than a “god”. In response
to the controversy, the film’s
producers have said that they
have made changes to the film
to address the concerns of Hin-
du groups. However, the con-
troversy has continued, and
there have been calls for the
film to be banned.
One question comes to mind
is how can the Censor Board
release films with such glaring
mistakes or anomalies. When
the boycott gang gives a call to
shun the film, the onus directly
has to come on the Censor
Board which has okayed it and
in this case, the makers’ re-
sponsibility becomes second-
ary. If the Censor Board is
given adequate powers to cut
portions, delete scenes and de-
mand changes in dialogues,
failing which the release would
not be possible… and the mak-
ers are bound to do it.
It is once again proved that
Content Is King. Remember
the Ramayan starringArun Go-
vil and Dipika Chikhlia? Even
after years of its transmission,
Arun Govil is “revered” even
when he’s spotted on a vacation
in some foreign country.
The VFX effects are impor-
tant tools to boost the content of
the film but remaining closer to
the original script and being
honest in making the film retain
its exactness is what counts.
Even after so many years, peo-
ple fondly remember Roopa
Ganguly, Puneet Isaar, late Gufi
Paintal and Mukesh Khanna.
Also in case filmmakers seek
the help of technology espe-
cially the VFX, in the case of
Adipurush, the shoddy VFX
and ‘Tapori’style dialogues de-
livered by the characters play-
ing Lord Hanuman have come
under huge criticism. Critics
even called it a hotch-potch of
movies. The film’s release hit a
roadblock in Nepal as the
screening was put on hold in
cinemas across Kathmandu
following a controversy over a
dialogue that called Janaki as
the daughter of India. As per
the mythology, Sita is believed
to have been born in Janakpur,
which is situated in Nepal.
Kathmandu City Mayor
Balendra Shah asked the mak-
ers to rectify the mistake about
the birthplace of Sita. “Until the
line ‘Janaki is a daughter of In-
dia’ contained in the South In-
dian film ‘Adipurush’ is re-
moved not just in Nepal but also
in India, no Hindi films will be
allowed to run in Kathmandu
Metropolitan City (sic),” Mayor
Shah wrote on Facebook on
Thursday. Nepal’s film certifi-
cation board also said that the
permission to screen the film in
theatres will be granted only af-
ter changing the dialogue that
describes“SitaasIndia’sdaugh-
ter”. The multilingual film, pro-
duced by T-Series, released
across the nation in Hindi, Kan-
nada, Telugu and Tamil lan-
guages. Produced by Bhushan
Kumar’s T-Series, Adipursh
budget was a whopping Rs 500
crore. The makers claimed the
film raised Rs 140 crore on the
day one of its release on Friday.

ROW OVER
BIRTHPLACE OF SITA
Many in Nepal believe that
Sita Ma was born in Janak-
pur, the kingdom of Sita’s
father King Janak. They also believe
that it is here the marriage between
Lord Ram and Sita Ma was held.
Janakpur is currently located in the
Madhesh Pradesh region of Nepal.
Janakpur also houses the famous
Janaki Mandir, which is hugely
considered to be constructed at the
place where Sita Ma was born. The
temple’s sanctum sanctorum had a
statue of Sita that was apparently
recovered from the Saryu River
near Ayodhya. However, many also
believe that Sita Ma was born in
Sita Kund, Punaura Dham, which
is located in the Sitamarhi district
of Bihar. Sita Ma Kund is glob-
ally known for its hot springs, and
locals in Sitamarhi believe that Sita
underwent the Agni Pariksha and
emerged unharmed. If asked, locals
from either areas would say theirs
is the official birthplace of the Sita
Ma. Meanwhile, Manoj Muntashir
Shukla, the dialogue writer of Adipu-
rush told Timesnow that since Nepal
was a part of India before 1903,
Sita Ma was born in India. However,
Overall the movie did extremely well
in the first weekend but due to bad
word of mouth, the movie has seen
a big drop since Monday.
PROTESTS ACROSS
NATION TO OPPOSE
RELEASE OF FILM
Meanwhile, protests
have broken out in India
as people took to the
streets to oppose the release of
the controversial film, Adipurush.
Multiple film theatres across the
country have been witnessing
fierce protests. Videos uploaded
on social media show protes-
tors calling for the film’s boycott
while chanting slogans like
“Murdabad,” “Hindu dharma ka
apmaan band karo (stop insulting
Hindu dharma)” and “Maa Sita ka
apmaan band karo”. A group of
people staged a demonstration
in Varanasi and tore posters of
the film. While Hindu Mahasabha
lodged a complaint with the Luc-
know police against the makers of
Adipurush on Monday. Meanwhile,
All India Cine Workers Association
(AICWA) has written to Prime Min-
ister Narendra Modi, requesting
him to “stop screening” the movie
and “immediately order a ban” on
Adipurush shows in theatres and
OTT platforms in the future. In an
open letter, AICWA wrote that the
movie “clearly” defamed the image
of Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman
and hurt “religious sentiments of
Hindus and Sanatan Dharma.”

Russia launched a wide-
spread overnight air at-
tack on Ukraine targeting
the capital and cities from
east to west as most of the
country spent the night
with air raid sirens blast-
ing for several hours.
Ukraine said it had
shot down 32 out of 35
Iranian-made Shahed
drones launched from
Russia’s Bryansk region
and the Azov Sea.
There was no mention
of any casualties in the
latest air strikes launched
by Moscow since Kyiv
began a counteroffensive
in which it says it has re-
captured 113 square km
(44 square miles) of land
from Russian forces.
The air force said on
the Telegram messaging
app that air defences had
been in action in most re-
gions of Ukraine.
“However, the main
direction of attack by
Iranian drones was the
Kyiv region. More than
two dozen Shaheds were
destroyed here,” its said
on the Telegram messag-
ing app.
An explosion of a drone is seen in the sky over the city during a

Kyiv: Ukrainian air defences downed 32 of 35
Shahed exploding drones launched by Russia early
Tuesday, most of them in the Kyiv region, officials

mostly targeted the region around the Ukrainian capital in a
nighttime drone attack lasting around three hours, officials
said, but Ukrainian air defences in the area shot down
about two dozen of them. The attack was part of a wider
bombardment of Ukrainian regions that extended as far as
the Lviv region in the west of the country, near Poland.

UNLOCKING THE
secrets of mudras
city first
cityfirst@firstindia.Co.In
ritya Sanskri-
ti dance insti-
tute headed
by Guru Dr
Seemaa Goel disciple of
(Nrityacharya Dr Shashi
Sankhla) organised an
interactive session on
“YOGA MUDRAS
AND THEIR CON-
NECTION WITH
DANCE” on the eve of
International Day of
Yoga at Jagatpura,
Jaipur on Tuesday.
The institute is work-
ing for the promotion of
Art and Culture and im-
parting training in the
field of Classical dance
Kathak, Semi classical
dance and Folk dances
to students, ladies and
women of all ages.
Mudras, or hand and
finger gestures, play a
significant role in both
Indian classical dance
and yoga. While they
share common roots,
there are fundamental
differences in how
mudras are used in these
practices.
In dance, mudras
serve as a form of exter-
nal communication, al-
lowing dancers to con-
vey emotions, narra-
tives, and ideas to the
audience. Each mudra
has a specific meaning
and can represent vari-
ous elements such as
animals, objects, or ab-
stract concepts. Dancers
use mudras in conjunc-
tion with facial expres-
sions, body movements,
and footwork to tell sto-
ries and express their
creativity. The intricate
hand gestures in classi-
cal dance forms like
Bharatanatyam, Odissi,
Kathak, and Mohiniyat-
tam showcase the rich-
ness of Indian cultural
heritage.
On the other hand, in
yoga, mudras are used
for internal communica-
tion. They are primarily
employed as a means to
channel and direct en-
ergy within the body. By
forming specific hand
configurations, the flow
of prana (life force) is
influenced, and this en-
ergy is believed to have
healing and transforma-
tive effects. Yogic
mudras are practised in
a meditative or contem-
plative setting, often
combined with specific
breathing techniques
(pranayama) or asanas
(postures) to enhance
their benefits. These
mudras are not
i n t e n d e d
for external expression
but rather for self-trans-
formation and inner
exploration.
The practice of
mudras over time estab-
lishes a connection be-
tween the physical,
mental, and energetic
bodies. By consciously
working with mudras,
individuals can experi-
ence a deeper awareness
of their physical sensa-
tions, emotions, and en-
ergetic states. This
heightened awareness
can be har-
nessed to direct and bal-
ance the flow of energy
within the body, promot-
ing healing, well-being,
and spiritual growth.
In the context of
dance, the purpose of
mudras is to convey ar-
tistic expression and
storytelling to the audi-
ence. Dancers use
mudras as a means of
communication, pro-
jecting their energy out-
wardly to captivate and
engage the viewers.
While their movements
and gestures may be di-
rected towards the audi-
ence, they also experi-
ence an inward connec-
tion with their own en-
ergy and emotions.
For example, in
Kathak, a classical
dance form, the dancer
embodies both the audi-
ence and the performer.
While their move-
ments are projected
outwardly to commu-
nicate with the view-
ers, their energy si-
multaneously moves
inwardly, creating a
profound connection
between their physi-
cality, emotions, and
spirituality. This in-
ward journey allows
the dancer to ex-
press their self-
awareness, explore
their inner depths,
and experience a
union of the self
with the art form.
In summary,
mudras serve dif-
ferent purposes
in Indian classi-
cal dance and
yoga. In dance,
they are used for
external commu-
nication and ar-
tistic expression,
whereas in yoga,
they are utilized
for internal com-
munication and
energy manipula-
tion. However,
both practices
recognize the
power of mudras
to facilitate con-
nection, self-ex-
pression, and
the potential
for healing 
transformation.
In dance, mudras serve as a form of
external communication, allowing
dancers to convey emotions, narratives,
and ideas to the audience. Each mudra
has a specific meaning and can
represent various elements such as
animals, objects, or abstract concepts.
Dancers use mudras in conjunction with
facial expressions, body movements,
and footwork to tell stories and express
their creativity.

OF THE WORLD
n June 21 every
year, people all
over the world
come together to
celebrate World Music Day.
Imagine a world without mu-
sic, it would be a dreary
place, where the air feels a
little less vibrant and our days
a little less exciting. Music
makes menial tasks like dish-
washing, morning runs, sit-
ting in traffic and cleaning
something pleasurable. It’s
like a never-ending party that
brings joy, laughter, and a
whole lot of fun. From catchy
tunes that make us want to
dance to heartwarming melo-
dies that touch our souls, mu-
sic is the cherry on top of
everyday life.
Music is an essential part
of being human. Like all
other things consid-
ered “art” it can
touchouremotions,
inspire our crea-
tivity, and unite
communities.
The power of
music is a
force that per-
meates every aspect of hu-
man existence. It has an ex-
traordinary ability to evoke a
wide range of emotions, from
joy and happiness to sorrow
and nostalgia. Music has the
unique capacity to transport
us to different times and plac-
es, stirring memories and in-
voking profound feelings. It
can uplift our spirits, provide
solace during challenging
times, and serve as a source
of inspiration and motivation.
Beyond its ability to touch
our emotions, music has a
profound impact on our men-
tal and physical well-being.
Scientific studies have shown
that listening to music can
reduce stress, anxiety, and de-
pression. It has been found to
stimulate the release of dopa-
mine, a neurotransmitter as-
sociated with pleasure and
reward, leading to feelings of
happiness and relaxation.
Music also has the power to
improve cognitive function,
enhance memory, and boost
overall brain health. Moreo-
ver, music has a remarkable
abilitytoconnectpeoplefrom
different cultures, back-
grounds, and languages. It
servesasauniversallanguage
that transcends barriers, fos-
tering a sense of unity and
understanding. Through mu-
sic, we can express
our deepest
e m o t i o n s ,
share our sto-
ries, and
bridge gaps
between
d i v e r s e
commu-
nities. It
c a n
b r e a k
down so-
c i a l
and cultural barriers, promot-
ing empathy, tolerance, and
cross-cultural dialogue.
One of the amazing things
about music is its incredible
variety and versatility that
shines through its diverse
genres and styles to suit every
taste. Classical music show-
cases the timeless beauty of
meticulously composed sym-
phonies, transporting listen-
ers to a world of elegance and
emotion. Jazz captivates with
its improvisational nature,
syncopated rhythms, and
spirit of spontaneity, inspir-
ing generations with its in-
fectious energy. The blues
delves deep into the hu-
manexperience,express-
ing raw emotions and
resilience, providing sol-
ace in its heartfelt lyrics
and soulful melodies.
Rock electrifies with its
energetic guitar riffs, driv-
ing rhythms, and rebellious
spirit, empowering listeners
and fueling their passion.
Pop music delights with its
catchy melodies, infectious
hooks, and universal appeal,
providing an escape and cre-
ating moments of joy and
togetherness.
The powerful tool
of Music is an artis-
tic weapon that has
been used over cen-
turies for many dif-
ferent purposes.
Music has also
been a
driving
force for
s o c i a l
c h a n g e
throughout
history. From
protest songs
that galvanised
movements for civil
rights and peace to an-
thems that inspire collective
action, music has the power
to ignite passion and create a
sense of solidarity among
individuals striving for a
better world. Its messages
of love, justice, and
equality resonate deeply
and can shape society
and challenge the status
quo. Additionally, mu-
sic plays a pivotal role
in cultural preservation
and identity. It serves as
a vessel for transmit-
ting traditions, stories,
and values across gen-
erations.Through tra-
ditional folk music,
indigenous chants,
or classical compo-
sitions rooted in
historical eras,
music pre-
serves cultural
heritage and keeps tra-
ditions alive. It acts as a
thread connecting individu-
als to their roots and
strengthening a sense of
belonging and cultural
pride.
Music has always
evolved, adapting to the
changing world around us.
It has been shaped by mi-
gration, globalisa-
tion, and the
blending of
different musi-
cal traditions.
This has given us a
rich and diverse musi-
cal heritage. It’s amaz-
ing to think about how music
reflects the identities and
experiences of people from
all over the world. It allows
artists to express themselves,
share their cultural heritage,
and connect with others. In
today’s digital age, music is
more accessible than ever.
We can listen to music from
around the world, discover
new artists, and appreciate
the beauty of different musi-
cal traditions. World Music
Day is an opportunity to ex-
pand our musical horizons
and celebrate the global har-
mony of sounds.
By celebrating World Mu-
sic Day internationally, we
recognize the importance of
music as a universal lan-
guage. It reminds us that we
are all connected through the
melodies, rhythms, and har-
monies that resonate within
us. It’s a day to appreciate
the contributions of diverse
cultures to the world of mu-
sic and to explore new
sounds and genres. A day to
appreciate the diversity and
richness of music, and let it
inspire us to create a world
filled with joy, understand-
ing, and peace.

It originally aired between 1987 and 1988 on DD National and it was narrated by Ashok Kumar and the director Ramanand Sagar. The music was composed by Ravindra Jain. During its run, the show became most watched television series in the world, it had a viewership of 82 per cent. The repeat telecast was aired on 20 different channels in 17 countries on all the five continents at different times. The success of the series was documented well by the media. According to BBC, the serial has been viewed by over 650 million viewers. Each episode of the series reportedly earned DD National `40 Lakh. The show is primarily based on Valmiki’s Ramayan and Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas. Other sources used were: Tamil Kamb Ramayan, Marathi Bhavarath Ramayan, Bengali Krutivas Ramayan, Telugu Shri Rangnath Ramayan, Kannada Ramchandra Charit Puran- am, Malayalam Adhyatma Ramayan, Urdu Ramayan by Chakbast. Ramayan was the most expensive TV show pro- duced during at the time with a budget `9 Lakh per episode. Number of episodes: 78 RAMAYAN ON DD ilms or rather the controversy regarding India cinema has gained quite a momentum of late. The boycott gang has been quite active. However, the film now under the scanner is Adipurush. In fact, while making a film or a serial regarding Ramayana or Mahabharat, one has to be extremely sensitive. Remem- ber how nicely Ramayana was depicted on Doordarshan in the Eighties. Forget the special ef- fects, the content and the sanc- tity were maintained with ut- most care. And hence the epics on the public broadcaster are still remembered and revered. Adipurush was already mired in controversy long before it was released. If fact since its inception. In 2021, the Adipu- rush’s teaser met with criticism from some Hindu groups who objected to the portrayal of Lord Ram and also other characters. They alleged that the film was inappropriate and inaccurate and feared that it would hurt re- ligious sentiments. The controversy picked up pace in 2022, following the poster’s release. The poster showed Prabhas as Ram wear- ing a crown and holding a bow and arrow. This had led to fur- ther criticism from the same groups, who argued that the crown was not part of Ram’s traditional attire and that it made him look like a “king” rather than a “god”. In response to the controversy, the film’s producers have said that they have made changes to the film to address the concerns of Hin- du groups. However, the con- troversy has continued, and there have been calls for the film to be banned. One question comes to mind is how can the Censor Board release films with such glaring mistakes or anomalies. When the boycott gang gives a call to shun the film, the onus directly has to come on the Censor Board which has okayed it and in this case, the makers’ re- sponsibility becomes second- ary. If the Censor Board is given adequate powers to cut portions, delete scenes and de- mand changes in dialogues, failing which the release would not be possible… and the mak- ers are bound to do it. It is once again proved that Content Is King. Remember the Ramayan starringArun Go- vil and Dipika Chikhlia? Even after years of its transmission, Arun Govil is “revered” even when he’s spotted on a vacation in some foreign country. The VFX effects are impor- tant tools to boost the content of the film but remaining closer to the original script and being honest in making the film retain its exactness is what counts. Even after so many years, peo- ple fondly remember Roopa Ganguly, Puneet Isaar, late Gufi Paintal and Mukesh Khanna. Also in case filmmakers seek the help of technology espe- cially the VFX, in the case of Adipurush, the shoddy VFX and ‘Tapori’style dialogues de- livered by the characters play- ing Lord Hanuman have come under huge criticism. Critics even called it a hotch-potch of movies. The film’s release hit a roadblock in Nepal as the screening was put on hold in cinemas across Kathmandu following a controversy over a dialogue that called Janaki as the daughter of India. As per the mythology, Sita is believed to have been born in Janakpur, which is situated in Nepal. Kathmandu City Mayor Balendra Shah asked the mak- ers to rectify the mistake about the birthplace of Sita. “Until the line ‘Janaki is a daughter of In- dia’ contained in the South In- dian film ‘Adipurush’ is re- moved not just in Nepal but also in India, no Hindi films will be allowed to run in Kathmandu Metropolitan City (sic),” Mayor Shah wrote on Facebook on Thursday. Nepal’s film certifi- cation board also said that the permission to screen the film in theatres will be granted only af- ter changing the dialogue that describes“SitaasIndia’sdaugh- ter”. The multilingual film, pro- duced by T-Series, released across the nation in Hindi, Kan- nada, Telugu and Tamil lan- guages. Produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Adipursh budget was a whopping Rs 500 crore. The makers claimed the film raised Rs 140 crore on the day one of its release on Friday. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL F ADIPURUSH ROW Handle epics with care Adipurush was already mired in controversy long before it was released. If fact since its inception. In 2021, the Adipurush’s teaser met with criticism from some Hindu groups who objected to the portrayal of Lord Ram and also other characters. They alleged that the film was inappropriate and inaccurate and feared that it would hurt religious sentiments. The controversy picked up pace in 2022, following the poster’s release. The poster showed Prabhas as Ram wearing a crown and holding a bow and arrow. This had led to further criticism from the same groups, who argued that the crown was not part of Ram’s traditional attire. Robin Roy The writer is Senior Journalist and former Managing Editor, First India ROW OVER BIRTHPLACE OF SITA Many in Nepal believe that Sita Ma was born in Janak- pur, the kingdom of Sita’s father King Janak. They also believe that it is here the marriage between Lord Ram and Sita Ma was held. Janakpur is currently located in the Madhesh Pradesh region of Nepal. Janakpur also houses the famous Janaki Mandir, which is hugely considered to be constructed at the place where Sita Ma was born. The temple’s sanctum sanctorum had a statue of Sita that was apparently recovered from the Saryu River near Ayodhya. However, many also believe that Sita Ma was born in Sita Kund, Punaura Dham, which is located in the Sitamarhi district of Bihar. Sita Ma Kund is glob- ally known for its hot springs, and locals in Sitamarhi believe that Sita underwent the Agni Pariksha and emerged unharmed. If asked, locals from either areas would say theirs is the official birthplace of the Sita Ma. Meanwhile, Manoj Muntashir Shukla, the dialogue writer of Adipu- rush told Timesnow that since Nepal was a part of India before 1903, Sita Ma was born in India. However, Overall the movie did extremely well in the first weekend but due to bad word of mouth, the movie has seen a big drop since Monday. PROTESTS ACROSS NATION TO OPPOSE RELEASE OF FILM Meanwhile, protests have broken out in India as people took to the streets to oppose the release of the controversial film, Adipurush. Multiple film theatres across the country have been witnessing fierce protests. Videos uploaded on social media show protes- tors calling for the film’s boycott while chanting slogans like “Murdabad,” “Hindu dharma ka apmaan band karo (stop insulting Hindu dharma)” and “Maa Sita ka apmaan band karo”. A group of people staged a demonstration in Varanasi and tore posters of the film. While Hindu Mahasabha lodged a complaint with the Luc- know police against the makers of Adipurush on Monday. Meanwhile, All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has written to Prime Min- ister Narendra Modi, requesting him to “stop screening” the movie and “immediately order a ban” on Adipurush shows in theatres and OTT platforms in the future. In an open letter, AICWA wrote that the movie “clearly” defamed the image of Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman and hurt “religious sentiments of Hindus and Sanatan Dharma.”

The institute is work- ing for the promotion of Art and Culture and im- parting training in the field of Classical dance Kathak, Semi classical dance and Folk dances to students, ladies and women of all ages. Mudras, or hand and finger gestures, play a significant role in both Indian classical dance and yoga. While they share common roots, there are fundamental differences in how mudras are used in these practices. In dance, mudras serve as a form of exter- nal communication, al- lowing dancers to con- vey emotions, narra- tives, and ideas to the audience. Each mudra has a specific meaning and can represent vari- ous elements such as animals, objects, or ab- stract concepts. Dancers use mudras in conjunc- tion with facial expres- sions, body movements, and footwork to tell sto- ries and express their creativity. The intricate hand gestures in classi- cal dance forms like Bharatanatyam, Odissi, Kathak, and Mohiniyat- tam showcase the rich- ness of Indian cultural heritage. On the other hand, in yoga, mudras are used for internal communica- tion. They are primarily employed as a means to channel and direct en- ergy within the body. By forming specific hand configurations, the flow of prana (life force) is influenced, and this en- ergy is believed to have healing and transforma- tive effects. Yogic mudras are practised in a meditative or contem- plative setting, often combined with specific breathing techniques (pranayama) or asanas (postures) to enhance their benefits. These mudras are not i n t e n d e d for external expression but rather for self-trans- formation and inner exploration. The practice of mudras over time estab- lishes a connection be- tween the physical, mental, and energetic bodies. By consciously working with mudras, individuals can experi- ence a deeper awareness of their physical sensa- tions, emotions, and en- ergetic states. This heightened awareness can be har- nessed to direct and bal- ance the flow of energy within the body, promot- ing healing, well-being, and spiritual growth. In the context of dance, the purpose of mudras is to convey ar- tistic expression and storytelling to the audi- ence. Dancers use mudras as a means of communication, pro- jecting their energy out- wardly to captivate and engage the viewers. While their movements and gestures may be di- rected towards the audi- ence, they also experi- ence an inward connec- tion with their own en- ergy and emotions. For example, in Kathak, a classical dance form, the dancer embodies both the audi- ence and the performer. While their move- ments are projected outwardly to commu- nicate with the view- ers, their energy si- multaneously moves inwardly, creating a profound connection between their physi- cality, emotions, and spirituality. This in- ward journey allows the dancer to ex- press their self- awareness, explore their inner depths, and experience a union of the self with the art form. In summary, mudras serve dif- ferent purposes in Indian classi- cal dance and yoga. In dance, they are used for external commu- nication and ar- tistic expression, whereas in yoga, they are utilized for internal com- munication and energy manipula- tion. However, both practices recognize the power of mudras to facilitate con- nection, self-ex- pression, and the potential for healing transformation. In dance, mudras serve as a form of external communication, allowing dancers to convey emotions, narratives, and ideas to the audience. Each mudra has a specific meaning and can represent various elements such as animals, objects, or abstract concepts. Dancers use mudras in conjunction with facial expressions, body movements, and footwork to tell stories and express their creativity.

Bolly To Holly JAIPUR, WEDNESDAY | JUNE 21, 2023 firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia 11 OF THE WORLD n June 21 every year, people all over the world come together to celebrate World Music Day. Imagine a world without mu- sic, it would be a dreary place, where the air feels a little less vibrant and our days a little less exciting. Music makes menial tasks like dish- washing, morning runs, sit- ting in traffic and cleaning something pleasurable. It’s like a never-ending party that brings joy, laughter, and a whole lot of fun. From catchy tunes that make us want to dance to heartwarming melo- dies that touch our souls, mu- sic is the cherry on top of everyday life. Music is an essential part of being human. Like all other things consid- ered “art” it can touchouremotions, inspire our crea- tivity, and unite communities. The power of music is a force that per- meates every aspect of hu- man existence. It has an ex- traordinary ability to evoke a wide range of emotions, from joy and happiness to sorrow and nostalgia. Music has the unique capacity to transport us to different times and plac- es, stirring memories and in- voking profound feelings. It can uplift our spirits, provide solace during challenging times, and serve as a source of inspiration and motivation. Beyond its ability to touch our emotions, music has a profound impact on our men- tal and physical well-being. Scientific studies have shown that listening to music can reduce stress, anxiety, and de- pression. It has been found to stimulate the release of dopa- mine, a neurotransmitter as- sociated with pleasure and reward, leading to feelings of happiness and relaxation. Music also has the power to improve cognitive function, enhance memory, and boost overall brain health. Moreo- ver, music has a remarkable abilitytoconnectpeoplefrom different cultures, back- grounds, and languages. It servesasauniversallanguage that transcends barriers, fos- tering a sense of unity and understanding. Through mu- sic, we can express our deepest e m o t i o n s , share our sto- ries, and bridge gaps between d i v e r s e commu- nities. It c a n b r e a k down so- c i a l and cultural barriers, promot- ing empathy, tolerance, and cross-cultural dialogue. One of the amazing things about music is its incredible variety and versatility that shines through its diverse genres and styles to suit every taste. Classical music show- cases the timeless beauty of meticulously composed sym- phonies, transporting listen- ers to a world of elegance and emotion. Jazz captivates with its improvisational nature, syncopated rhythms, and spirit of spontaneity, inspir- ing generations with its in- fectious energy. The blues delves deep into the hu- manexperience,express- ing raw emotions and resilience, providing sol- ace in its heartfelt lyrics and soulful melodies. Rock electrifies with its energetic guitar riffs, driv- ing rhythms, and rebellious spirit, empowering listeners and fueling their passion. Pop music delights with its catchy melodies, infectious hooks, and universal appeal, providing an escape and cre- ating moments of joy and togetherness. The powerful tool of Music is an artis- tic weapon that has been used over cen- turies for many dif- ferent purposes. Music has also been a driving force for s o c i a l c h a n g e throughout history. From protest songs that galvanised movements for civil rights and peace to an- thems that inspire collective action, music has the power to ignite passion and create a sense of solidarity among individuals striving for a better world. Its messages of love, justice, and equality resonate deeply and can shape society and challenge the status quo. Additionally, mu- sic plays a pivotal role in cultural preservation and identity. It serves as a vessel for transmit- ting traditions, stories, and values across gen- erations.Through tra- ditional folk music, indigenous chants, or classical compo- sitions rooted in historical eras, music pre- serves cultural heritage and keeps tra- ditions alive. It acts as a thread connecting individu- als to their roots and strengthening a sense of belonging and cultural pride. Music has always evolved, adapting to the changing world around us. It has been shaped by mi- gration, globalisa- tion, and the blending of different musi- cal traditions. This has given us a rich and diverse musi- cal heritage. It’s amaz- ing to think about how music reflects the identities and experiences of people from all over the world. It allows artists to express themselves, share their cultural heritage, and connect with others. In today’s digital age, music is more accessible than ever. We can listen to music from around the world, discover new artists, and appreciate the beauty of different musi- cal traditions. World Music Day is an opportunity to ex- pand our musical horizons and celebrate the global har- mony of sounds. By celebrating World Mu- sic Day internationally, we recognize the importance of music as a universal lan- guage. It reminds us that we are all connected through the melodies, rhythms, and har- monies that resonate within us.
