From the Ambassador’s desk Dear Friends, Let me wish all the readers of India Digest a very happy and prosperous New Year as this is our first edition in 2017. This year marks the 25th anniversary of India-ASEAN Dialogue Partnership. In this process, Cambodia played a very important role, which is in keeping with the close and friendly relationship that India and Cambodia have always enjoyed.

Naveen Srivastava Ambassador of India to the Kingdom of Cambodia

To mark this special occasion, the Embassy with the support of Ministries of Culture and Fine Arts and Tourism of Cambodia had organised a grand “Festival of India” in January-February 2017. We were happy to see the enthusiastic response by our Cambodian friends for the various dances and events that were organised. The Festival opened with the performance of Ramayana, known popularly in Cambodia as Reamke. It was the first time that Ramayana was performed in front of Bayon Temple in Angkor Wat. This was a special occasion, as the story of Ramayana and Angkor Wat have a close connection. In addition we had performances of Indian Classical and Folk dances, Food Festival and also a Buddhist Festival to cherish the close cultural relations between our two countries. This edition of the India Digest has several photographs that will give you a glimpse of the Festival, if you missed it. Soon the Embassy will also organize the 3rd International Day of Yoga in June 2017. As in the last two years we hope to see a large number of Cambodian people participating in these celebrations and practicing Yoga. Before I end, let me also wish all our friends a very Happy Sankranta and Khmer New Year. I hope you will enjoy this edition of India Digest. As always please send us your views/comments at or through Facebook (India in Cambodia)

Rhythms of Manipur

In the serene and rustic land of Manipur, dance is seen not as an art form but a way of life text / Abhishek Chakraborty. Colourful dresses, soulful music, the sound of beating drums and rhythmic dance - welcome to Manipur, the land of jewels. Here dance and music are forms of expression, one that is not just personal, but closely interspersed with the social fabric of the community. A treasure trove of undiscovered art forms, be it music, dance or art works, the people of Manipur have not given up their cultural traditions and norms. While most of them have adapted themselves to the changing face of the world, they still celebrate their heritage and ensure that the future generations carry forward their cultural customs. One of these gems is the Kabui dance by the Kabui Naga tribe. Viewers delight Despite obscurity on a larger scope, Kabui Naga dance is a popular dance form of the hill tribes. A community dance, it is performed by both men and women of the tribe. For a viewer, it is an experience in itself. A Kabui Naga dance performance includes male dancers holding big knives in their hands as they move around in circles while the female dancers accompany them. Adorned with heavy tribal jewellery, female dancers wear colourful traditional costumes and are a sight to behold. To have a taste of their distinct cultural legacy, all one needs to do is attend the Gang-Ngai festival, which happens every year in the month of December or January, and see them celebrate it with fervour and gusto. The dance performance is accompanied with a big drum that emanates a rhythmic beat. The drum beats enrich the earthiness and liveliness of the dance and boost the interest of the audience. It is performed during winter in an open yard, where the members of 14 IDApril 2017_ata.indd 14

5/3/2017 4:03:27 PM

the village sit and celebrate. Once the performance concludes, it’s time for a feast of food and drink, which includes beer and ham with rice. Forms and types The Kabui Naga dance has various forms including Ngai Laam, Poumei Laam and Ballu Laam. While Ngai Laam is performed during festivals, Poumei Laam is performed when community utility is created. Ballu Laam, regarded as the Dance of the Gods, has a classical aspect to its movements and pos tures. Ballu Laam can be further divided into Hoi Laam, Zeihsung Laam, Zouhmon Patmei Laam, Goipi Thengmei Laam, Banjai Laam, Baan Laam and more.

morning. The Kabuis consider it a blessing to be a part of these dances. With the rise of tourism in the northeast, this dance form is slowly but steadily gaining recognition for itself. The government and social media are also playing a huge role in the promotion of indigenous dance forms. So, just sit back and enjoy the show.

What’s unique about these dance forms is their way of presentation. For example, Zeihsung Laam is performed by male dancers while Zouhmon Patmei Laam involves only female dancers. Goipi Thengmei Laam, a male-only performance, requires each dancer to approach the cattle head, Goipi, which is mounted on a pole that is swung high above the dancers, and whoever snatches it first is declared the winner. Banjai Laam involves the participation of both male and female dancers. What’s significant about this form is that the dance performance continues overnight till the next

Thangka paintings stand out among traditional Indian art due to the subjects on which they are based as well as the techniques used text I Gaurav Nagpal A painting is created when paint, pigment, colour or any other medium is applied to a solid surface. In India, paintings have occupied a key position in the tradition and history of art, from pre-historic rock paintings to modern day abstracts, and from large canvases to miniatures. Most styles of paintings have the artist as an inventor - he/she applies his or her own consciousness and interpretation of thoughts, objects, locations or other subjects to create a work of art. An artist, though, can also be a medium, a channel conveying a story or serving as a teaching tool- this, in essence, is the purpose of the Thangka style of painting. A Thangka is a Tibetan Buddhist painting on - among others- cotton or silk applique. The word “Thangka” is believed to mean “thing that one unrolls” or “recorded message” in the Tibetan language. Said to have originated in the seventh-eighth century AD, a Thangka painting was most often commissioned by individuals and then gifted to monasteries or to other individuals; the compensation to the artist was traditionally regarded as a gift, rather than a fee. The first Thangka is said to have been painted in India. It is believed that a king in Rajgir (present-day Bihar) was sent an expensive gift by a neighbouring king. Unsure about what to send in return, he consulted the Buddha, who recommended a Thangka depicting the “Wheel of Life” that shows the complete cycle of Nirvana and existence. It was decided to paint an image of the Buddha in the upper-right corner; however, the artist was unable to bring himself to gaze directly at the Buddha. To solve the situation, the Buddha sat next to a body of water, and the artist completed the painting by looking at his reflection. 18 IDApril 2017_ata.indd 18

The resulting image is known as the Thangka â&#x20AC;&#x153;taken from waterâ&#x20AC;?. Thangkas can be categorised on the basis of technique of painting as well as material used. The most common classification is into two broad categories: painted Thangkas, and applique or embroidery Thangkas on cotton or silk. The size can vary from several metres long and wide, to half the size of a typical full-length portrait. Because of the delicate nature of the painting, a Thangka must be stored in a dry place where the silk is safe from the effects of moisture. When not on display, a Thangka is mounted on a textile backing (with a silk cover, is rolled up and kept away). Thangka paintings are valued not just for their aesthetic beauty but also for several other purposes. A Thangka often serves as an important teaching tool, where images of deities are used to depict the life of the Buddha, significant historical events involving influential lamas, or myths about deities. During a ceremony or a ritual, a devotional image serves as a centrepiece, a medium to make requests or offer prayers. Possibly, the most important purpose of Thangka paintings is their role as meditational tools. Through a Thangka, a practitioner of meditation develops a clear visualisation of a deity and strengthens his/her concentration. The visions appearing to spiritual masters during moments of awakening are depicted as deities in Thangka paintings, and their proportions are considered sacred - particularly because they serve as a road map of sorts to guide a practitioner to the masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insight. Accuracy of the depiction is the key, and the artist must ensure this if a Thangka is to be considered genuine.

SAINT NARADA BRINGS A MESSAGE. One day king Yudhishthira was holding his court and his brothers were sitting on their respective seats. Just then, Saint Narada happened to reach there. Seeing him, the Pandavas rushed to receive him. They touched the saint’s feet and entertained him in every way. The saint, In return, conferred a heap of blessings on the Pandavas and enquired various facts about the new-established kingdom and its various departments. Then the saint said, “0 King Yudhishthira, I met your revered father Pandu in heaven. He has sent a message to you. This message is indeed his last unfulfilled wish. He wants you to perform the Imperial Yajna (Rajsooya Yajna). But you have to be quite alert while performing it as your enemies will try their best to create hurdles in your way.” Saying so, the saint took leave of the Pandavas and went away. KRISHNA REACHES INDRAPRASTHA. Hearing what Saint Narada had said, King Yudhishthira was overwhelmed with a craving to perform the Imperial Yajna. He consulted all his courtiers who supported his desire. So, articles necessary for the yajna began to be collected. It was decided that the king should hold his first assembly in the new hall after performing the yajna only. The news of the yajna to be performed spread far and wide. When Shri Krishna heard about it, he came to Indraprastha. Seeing Saint Dhaumya, Saint Vyasa, King Drupada and King Virata already there, he felt very happy. King Yudhishthira said to Krishna, “Keshava ! I have been overtaken by a desire to perform the Imperial Yajna. Everyone is supporting this desire of mine. But your opinion has always proved valuable in every respect. So, I want to know your reaction.” Krishna thought over the matter with a cool mind and said, “0 Great King ! you must perform the Imperial Yajna. But one thing must be done before it is performed.”

“What is that, Keshava ” asked the king. Krishna replied, “You must be knowing that Jarasandha, king of Magadha, has conquered and imprisoned a large number of rulers. He has meditated hard and Lord Shiva has conferred certain boons on him. He is still making conquests with a view to taking the number of imprisoned kings to one hundred and one. Then he will sacrifice them to Lord Rudra (Destructive Form of Lord Shiva). Besides, he is dead against me because I killed his son-in-law, King Kansa of Mathura, who was my maternal Uncle also. It is heard that prince Shishupala of Chedi (Bundelkhand) and two famous warriors, Hansa and Dimbhaka, are his three generals. Not only this, King Bhagadatta, the mighty ruler of Parag Jyotish, has knelt down before him and Jarasandha has declared himself an emperor (Samrata). As I am related to you, he will surely create trouble for you during the performance of your yajna because it will be a challenge to his name and power.” “What should be done then, Keshava​” asked Yudhishthira. “Nothing but Jarasandha’s elimination,” replied Krishna. “How can we do that ” asked Yudhishthira pensively . “Leave it to me, 0 King. Only send Bhima and Arjuna with me. I’ll have Jarasandha killed by Bhima. And his elimination will establish your might. As a result, no other king will take courage to raise his head against you,” explained Krishna.


Yudhishthira felt highly worried for his brothers, though he believed that Krishna was their true well-wisher and he must not entertain any fear for his brothers if Krishna was with them. So, he said to him, “What shall I do without you and my two brothers Whereas you are our best guide, my brothers are my two eyes. I have serious misgivings from Jarasandha.” Krishna consoled Yudhishthira, saying, “Don’t worry at all, brother. What is to be, must be. Nobody can do anything against destiny. Believe me, Jarasandha’s end is quite imminent as his sins have crossed all limits. Listen to my plan carefully. We shall go to Jarasandha as Brahmanas to gain access to him without any difficulty. Coming face to face with him, Bhima will challenge him for a duel and he’ll surely accept it. It will give your brother a chance to tear the two parts of his body asunder and kill him.”

SECRET OF JARASANDHA’S BIRTH Yudhishthira asked Krishna, “Kesheva ! tell me the secret of the two parts of Jarasandha’s body.” Krishna said, “Jarasandha’s father King Brihadratha ruled over Magadha. He was a brave warrior and religious-minded ruler. He had married twin princesses of Kashi. Both the queens were extremely charming and the king was highly delighted to have them as his wives.” “But unfortunately, King Brihadratha could not get any child from any of his queens. He grew old and thought of turning an ascetic. Just then, Saint Chandrakaushika happened to come to Magadha. He sat under a mango tree in order to take rest for some time. Someone informed the king of it. So, the king, along with his queens, went to the saint and touched his feet. Then he told the saint that he wanted a heir to his throne.” The saint closed his eyes and thought for a while. Just then a mango fell from the tree. The saint picked it up and gave it to the king for his queens. Reaching the palace, the king gave the mango to the queens. Only one of them should have eaten it. But they divided it into two parts and either of them ate one of the parts. In due course of time, either of the queens bore a half-baby. Seeing this, the queens got afraid. So, they asked one of their maids to throw the half-babies out of the town at a lonely place. This was done but just then a demoness, named Jara, happened to see them. She picked up both the half-babies for her food. To carry them easily and safely, she placed them together and wrapped them in a cloth. Lo ! the parts got joined into a full baby who gave out a fearful cry. The demoness got afraid and the news spread throughout the town. So, she went to the king’s court to tell what had happened. The queens were also there in the court. They told the king what had happened and the king was very pleased to have his son back. The boy was named Jarasandha after the name of the demoness who had joined the two half-babies. Just then, Saint Chandrakaushika reached the court. He told the king that his son (Jarasandha) would be handsome, religious and a man of exceptional prowess. He would checkmate a large number of kings. But his enmity with one king would bring about his ruin and he would die after being torn apart from the middle into two parts-just as he had been born. 39 IDApril 2017_ata.indd 39
