“ VISUAL ART WORKSHOP FOR TEXT LANGUAGE PROMOTION ”
|Painting By Artist Anurag Swami on Doha of DHOLA MARWAN|
Yes we done it for our RAJASTHANI language , that was our true contribution for our state language promotion by way of visual art . it was not a political action it was a historical art action about language promotion . After freedom of nation here our state is working in Hindi or English but in real life we use our local language that’s name is RAJASTHANI , our RajasthanI language history is very rich and old. We have many records in book or dairy formats.
Rajasthani is a language, this wards said very first in INDIA, language researcher Iatalian write cum philosopher L .P. Tesitory . he was lived in Bikaner city and he was pass away from Bikaner , here in Bikaner city we have his MAJAAR near church of Bikaner. Sir Tesitory was gave a first academic dictionary of Rajasthani words to literature and in Rajasthani language he did read lots of literature in form of Story, poem ( Doha ) , history and some business records in banika or dingal language, Banika And Dingal language is format of R ajasthani language writing and that’s pronunciation .It is very old I think it was before Hindi Language.
In 2011, I were busy in Rajasthani language writing work as a visual artist . I were wrote 365 notes in Rajasthani and I were wrote to that like a visual or landscape by Rajasthani words , that was myself commitment for Rajasthani writing and I gave name to that Rajasthani notes “ TEXT PHOTOGRAPHY ” Kind your Information I were dedicated that RAJASTHANI language work to Writer L.P. Tesitory Sir and I have shared that notes on online by facebook network with world Art family .So there to I collected a Concept for Art workshop about Rajasthani language Promotion . Once again I were called to our BALAT art community artists . we were met in my studio and we did final a art workshop on Rajasthani Language .
We were selected subject for Painting old Rajasthani Poems ( Doha ) , Doha is a two line format poem with limited words and limited sound of vowels . In two line a poet could said his complete story and identity or expression about nature or others . so we were selected book of Doha DHOLA-MARWAN A love Story of a King . After selection of art workshop subject , we were started search of doha books here and there, in that case we were visited library of Rajasthani Bhasha Sahity avam Sanskrity Academy. We were met to some writer of Rajasthani in that meeting we were met to writer Sardar Ali Padihaar ji, Shri Bhawani Shankar vyas ji, or Shri nahta ji , or some more senior and junior writes . over all after that meeting we were collected the book of writer cum poet Prathvi Raj Rathod , Dhola- Marvan Love Story .
When we were read that book then we were fond that was not only a love story book , that is a complete definition of environment , culture and life style of Rajasthan state . so that doha reading work was giving us lots of visuals for painting work . that was really great feeling for all of us because we were imagining many type visuals after read to each one Doha of that book .
When we were completed our concept design for painting on Rajasthani Doha , then we were booked a hotel room for our art workshop , that was June month and here in Bikaner environment was still with 45 to 48 degree temperature so for work we were needing cool environment and that environment we can find from a cool hotel room . so we were selected Hotel JOSHI Bikaner , this hotel Director is our City M.A.L. Dr. Gopal Joshi , he is also write and a very good literature person and he is loving to art and culture so he was gave us his hotel room for our three days painting workshop on Rajasthani Doha . ( we were Pay room rent to manager of hotel Joshi )
