Ministry Of Culture Is Promoting To Folk Theater In INDIA …
Folk it is a very important word for our Human family . it have the sense of History , culture , tradition, life education, motivation , promotion and much more about confident life.
In India we are calling to it Folk , or in our own language we are calling to it LOK. Lok Mean representation of Human Culture/ sense /style or tradition . so here in this post I will use word LOK ( Folk ) for my easy writing . we Indian people or some experts are saying Lok is up to all kind of religions , when religions feel incomplete then they look to LOK and Lok give a right way to them for life.

Lok came in Human life with birth of Human or with time its getting modification time to time . this Lok is a format of inner sound , Lok give freedom to humans for express to inner sound. Folk have no any academic theory but that’s presentation is creating itself a new theory for next generation . I feeling it practically by a Lok theater of My City .

That Lok theater is based on musical poetry or dance . last 20 years to continue I am visiting to that RASLEELA in my city. so I can say I know very much about folk theater . that RASLEELA is giving life education , indication for discipline of life and educating to history of Indian religions through the folk theater performance , for me that RASLEELA is like a live art institute about education of folk theater art . in this 20 years I noticed Lok have no change in base or concept , lok not need any popularity ,publicity and promotion because LOK was designed for life education that’s all . its my lok sense after observe to real Lok .

Friends I am telling it because on date 10 January 2018 , I invited for a Folk theater workshop or festival at Ravindra Rang Manch Bikaner . that invitation came by post at my postal address from Ministry of culture Govt. Of INDIA .
That folk theater workshop cum festival was organized by North zone culture center /west zone culture center or U.I T. Bikaner .
There I visited to two days workshop of folk theater . I noticed to performance of Kashmiri folk theater BHAND PAATHER /folk theater of Punjab NAKAL / performance of Maharashtra TAMASHA / Rajasthani Folk theater KUCHAMANI KHAYAL / Jaipuri TAMASHA KHAYA .

That workshop gave me some more information about folk theater , I noticed, it was came in India with Mugal kings or in INDIA it was transformed in religions story or education format .
Folk theater TAMASHA was base of that workshop , I noticed many styles of TAMASHA folk theater in that two days of workshop . but that’s base was same , poetic ,story telling through support of music and dance . the Kashmiri TAMASHA was in Kashmiri sound ( sound Mean , dress. Language, music , or Historical story of that land ) the Maharashtrian folk theater was in color of Mahareashtra , Punjab folk theater was in mood of Punjab Folk and Rajasthani Folk theater was in Rajasthani soul .
Through that live workshop of folk theater I observed they all artist cum performer are living to folk or someone have it , in their bool from their four fathers , for example I can say the Bhatt Family from Jaipur Gharana .
|Myself At Ravindra Rang Manch Bikaner 2018 , i joined to folk theater workshop and festival as a viewer / artist / folk student for my heritage project .. Jai Hind ...|
Over all in that four days I see the folk theater is working in mid of our society or in our nation cities , it will still with human life as a live culture of life.
It will more live long when the nation government or that’s machinery will promote to it for right guide line of nation life . so I am thankful for Ministry of culture they invited me, they revive my folk education through that live folk theater art workshop or festival .
That Lok theater workshop or activity was interacted to all indian folk theater artists on one Stage ,it was communicating to different folk theater style or that’s different shades . it was interesting or artistic too.
I dedicated My four days to that folk theater workshop or festival , as a art Student there to I got folk theater education with right information about folk or that’s history . it can possible by promotion of Ministry of Culture / Government of INDIA .
So here I said Ministry of Culture is Promoting to folk theater in INDIA …
