Department Overview:

The Department of Performing Arts was established in 2010 with the vision of providing ?Integrity through Aesthetic performance?. Its mission is to inspire and mentor the birth and sustained growth of artists who, through cultural ethos, will embody respect, humanity and discipline. The primary aim of the programme is not to make students experts in one art form or the other, but introduce them to the possibilities with art and to help them get an integrated sense of art. The department has more than 150 students who are guided by 5 permanent and 2 guest faculty members. The first batch graduated in the year 2013. At present, the department offers three undergraduate and one postgraduate programmes

Mission Statement:

Vision ?Integrity through aesthetic performance? Mission To inspire and mentor the birth and sustained growth of performance artists who, through cultural ethos, will embody respect, humility and discipline.

Introduction to Program:

The Bachelors in Performing Arts is envisioned for students who have a flair for dance, music and theatre and are looking for structured intervention at the UG level. The programme hopes to give a strong platform for our students to develop a passion for the arts, sharpen their artistic skills and broaden their theoretical base. While the focus will be predominantly within the parameters of dance, music and theatre, other art forms would act as subsidiaries under this three-dimensional approach. The primary aim of the programme is not to make students experts in one art form or the other, but introduce them to the possibilities with art and to help them get an integrated sense of art. It is desirable that every students continues to work under an artist/group in one art form or the other outside curriculum, towards long term development. As of now, the Performing Arts papers will function alongside of English and Psychology as a part of a triple-major combination. This combination will hopefully give linguistic, literary and psychological insights to the students. Since there is scope for accommodating only one paper from all the three fields in each of the first two semesters, the second year is conceptualized in a form where the students can choose an area of specialization in one of the three art forms- dance, music or theatre, through the elective option. However, they need to stick on to the same specialized area until the last semester. In the third year, they shall

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

The Additional English course is offered as a second language course and seeks to introduce the students to the nuances of English literature in its varied forms and genres. The students who choose Additional English are generally proficient in the English language. Hence, instead of focusing on introducing them to language, challenging texts in terms of ideas, form, and technique are chosen. Additional English as a course is designed for students in place of a regional language. Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), foreign nationals and students who have not taken Hindi, Kannada, Tamil or French at the Plus 2 or Class XII levels are eligible to choose Additional English. The course is taught for students from different streams, namely, BA, BSc, BCom, and BBA in the first year and for BA, BSc and BCom (Regular) in the second year.

The first year syllabus is an attempt by the Department of English, Christ University to recognize and bring together the polyphonic Indian and Indian sub-continental voices in English in English translation for the Additional English students of the first year. This effort aims to familiarize the students with regional literatures in translation, Indian Writing in English (IWE) and literatures from Pakistan, Nepal and Srilanka, thereby, enabling the students to learn more about Indian culture and ethos through writings from different regions of the country. We have tried to represent in some way or the other the corners of India and the Indian sub-continent in this microcosmic world of short stories, poems and essays

 

There is a prescribed text bookfor the first year students, compiled by the Department of English, Christ University and intended for private circulation.

The first semester has a variety of writing from India, Pakistan and Nepal. The various essays, short stories and poems deal with various socio-economic, cultural and political issues that are relevant to modern day India and the Indian sub-continent and will enable students to comprehend issues of identity-politics, caste, religion, class, and gender. All of the selections either in the manner of their writing, the themes they deal with or the ideologies that govern them are contemporary in relevance and sensibility, whether written by contemporary writers or earlier writers. An important addition to this syllabus is the preponderance of North-Eastern writing which was hitherto not well represented. Excerpts from interviews, autobiographical writings, sports and city narratives are added to this section to introduce students to the varied genres of literature.

The objectives of this course are

to expose students to the rich literary and cultural diversity of  Indian literatures

to sensitise students on the social, political, historical and cultural ethos that has shaped the nation- INDIA

to enable to grasp and appreciate the variety and abundance of Indian writing, of which this compilation is just a passing glance

to learn and appreciate India through association of ideas in the texts and the external contexts (BhashaUtsav will be an intrinsic help in this endeavour)

In the end, students will be ale to gain a better appreciation of why contemporary psychology takes the shape it does, describe the evolution of psychology and the major pioneers in the field, identify the various approaches, fields, and subfields of psychology along with their major concepts and important figures and describe the value of psychology and possible careers paths for those who study psychology

As much as possible, application to real-life situations will be discussed. Students would be able to identify the various perspectives that are common in the area of personality psychology and critically evaluate each in terms of its explanatory and predictive power, discuss theories and perspectives of personality development: psychoanalytic, humanistic, trait, and social-cognitive, understand classic and current empirical measurement tools and approaches to investigation for personality assessment in psychological and clinical science and develop an understanding of the concept of individual differences with the goal to promote self-reflection and understanding of self and others.

Janakiharana of Kumaradasa is the first Sanskrit mahakavya, so far as the extant literature goes, to deal solely with the whole of the Ramayana story. Its further interest is that it was produced in Ceylon, showing thereby the wider world over which Sanskrit had its sway. After manuscripts of the full text of the poem in twenty cantos had to come to light in South India, what is now presented was the first systematc and critical study to be undertaken to the author and the text and its position vis-a-vis other Mahakavyas. In addition to the above study and the critical edition of the cantos which were at that time unpublished the examination of the large number of extra-verses found in some MSS of the text and showing them as interpolations.

Learning Outcome

To develop linguistic skills

To develop communication skills

Janaki Haranam
 

Selected shlokas 1-60 shlokas

Kumāradāsa is the author of a Sanskrit Mahākāvya called the Jānakī-haraṇa or Jānakī’s abduction. Jānakī is another name of Sita, wife of Rama. Sita was abducted by Ravana when she along with Rama, exiled from his kingdom, and Lakshmana was living in a forest which incident is taken from Ramayana ('Rama’s Journey'), the great Hindu epic written by Valmiki.

The Sinhalese translation of his work, Jānakī-haraṇa, gave credence to the belief that Kumāradāsa was King Kumāradhātusena (513-522 A.D.) of Sri Lanka but scholars do not make any such identification even though the poet at the end of his poem says that his father, Mānita, a commander of the rearguard of the Sinhalese King Kumāramaṇi, died in battle on the day he was born and that his maternal uncles, Megha and Agrabodhi, brought him up. Rajasekhara, who lived around 900 A.D., in his Kāvyamīmāmsā refers to the poet as born blind - मेधाविरुद्रकुमारदासादयः जात्यन्धाः. There is also a tradition that this poem was written by Kalidasa. Kumāradāsa came after Kalidasa and lived around 500 A.D., later than Bhāravi but before Māgha. While writing Jānakī-haraṇa, he certainly had before him Raghuvaṃśa of Kalidasa.[1]
