Prekṣaṇīyam is an anthology of essays on Indian classical dance and theatre authored by multifaceted scholar and creative genius, Śatāvadhānī Dr. R Ganesh. They have been rendered into English by scholar, literature buff, and art aficionado, Arjun Bharadwaj. The translator has also added extensive footnotes, supplementary content, glossary, and indices for the benefit of the reader. The essays in the book deal with the philosophy, history, aesthetics, and practice of dance and theatre art in India. The author offers invaluable insights into every aspect of these arts, supported by incisive reasoning, deep study, and vast experience. These writings are products of decades of study and research, coupled with long-drawn interactions with the brightest minds in art. A scholarly exposition on the concept and value of Nṛtta, Nṛtya, and Nāṭya comes as a part of the work. An exclusive collection of articles on Yakṣagāna, the grand theatrical art of Karnataka is a part of this book. The highlight of this segment being a novel kind of presentation called ‘Ekavyakti-Yakṣagāna’ conceived by the author. This anthology also includes research articles and ideas for future research. As part of the writing, there are also some occasion-driven responses that challenge the accusations levelled against Indian aesthetics by people either disrespectful of the tradition or not acquainted with the subject.
