Minister of State for Culture (I/C), Dr Mahesh Sharma, today released 3 books ‘Jewellery’ by Dr Gulab Kothari, ‘Ghats of Banaras’ by Dr Sachidanand Joshi and ‘Untold Story of Broadcasting’ by Dr Gautam Chatterjee at IGNCA, New Delhi.
Speaking on the occasion, he congratulated IGNCA for its efforts to take art and culture through the release of these books. In the book release, Dr Mahesh Sharma said “Jewellery making has been a traditional occupation with a finer classification of those who make it in Gold, Silver, Diamond, Pearl, Artificial etc. But in recent times it is also being studied as a specialized stream of knowledge. This is the most significant book for our upcoming generation.”
The Book titled “‘Untold Story of Broadcasting” written by Dr Gautam Chatterjee is about behind-the-scenes developments during the Quit India movement. It gives an authentic account of the secret broadcast which took place during the movement led by Shri Ram Manohar Lohia. It has been published in collaboration with Publication Division, Government of India.
The Book “Ghats of Banaras” is derived out of the similar documentation conducted recently at Varanasi. These Ghats situated at the bank of river Ganga in a semi-circular shape (ardhachandrakar), give a spectacular view of the city.
