Therefore, in this paper we will examine the problems of teaching of English as well as see if there is any solution to these problems.</p> Dr. Jai Vardhan Kumar Copyright (c) 2020 Dr. Jai Vardhan Kumar Sat, 15 Aug 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Man and Nature: The Everlasting Bond <p>Interdependent relationship between man and nature in Ruskin Bond’s short stories can be come across.

Many similarities and equally numbered distinctions may be traced midst the dramatic output of William Shakespeare and Sri Aurobindo. However, of the eleven plays only five plays are complete, in that they have a five act structure, namely- <em>Viziers of Bassora, Eric, Rodogune, Perseus: The Deliverer</em> and <em>Vasavadutta</em>. The genealogy of all these plays may be traced to the legends or myths, of the various ancient cultures which populated the world and shaped its history. Irrespective of their different myths of origin, Sri Aurobindo,&nbsp; much like Shakespeare employs these stories only as the raw clay, while he mould the statue out of it, according to his own vision, that is the Evolution of Man.</p> <p>An analysis of Sri Aurobindo’s plays elucidates the unparalleled range and vision to which his plays bear testimony. The notable feature of Sri Aurobindo’s plays is that they portray diverse cultures and nations in different aeons, populated with an array of characters, moods and sentiments.</p> <p>Sri Aurobindo spent almost all his growing years in England, studying English and other classical literatures and the impact of this reading is discernible in his plays. He seems to be particularly impressed by the Elizabethan drama and employs its technique in matters of plot construction and characterisation. He is said to have perfected the English blank verse which he deftly displays in the dialogues of his characters. His plays can thus be said to be a unique blend of the Sanskrit and Western philosophical and aesthetic theories as the plot, the climax, the progression and the theme is unmistakably Indian. He seems to have been influenced by the Sanskrit playwrights like Bhasa, Kalidas and Bhavabhuti and all five plays are imbued with the poetry and romance which is similar in spirit and flavour of the distinctive dramatic type which was the signature style of Bhasa, Kalidas and Bhavabhuti, and simultaneously preserve the Aurobindonian undertones. The paper attempts to elucidate the ‘Evolution of Man’ which Sri Aurobindo mounts through his plays.</p> Ansh Sharma Copyright (c) 2020 Ansh Sharma Thu, 17 Sep 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Politics of Language and Linguistic Identity: Sadri Replacing other Adivasi Languages in Sundargarh <p>Movements related to languages are interesting phenomena with a load of consequences on the fate of languages. A powerful language with state backing is capable of weakening and dismantling the structure of a language which is less powerful and without any political backings. However, there are languages which find other ways to growth and popularity. People find interesting reasons to switch to a different language. Sadri, tribal lingua-franca in the district of Sundargarh, Odisha is enjoying a privileged linguistic space at the cost of other adivasi languages.</p> Dr. Ajit Kumar Kullu Copyright (c) 2020 Dr. Ajit Kumar Kullu Sat, 19 Sep 2020 00:00:00 +0000
