Indian Contemporary Art

The Indian contemporary art has indeed able to showcase the complexities that India has lived with and continues to brave still today. Here, it is worth asking what constitutes Indian contemporary art for it to represent an India as truly as possible and also, what constitutes the India, for its people to produce the art that truly represent the India that they live in. These questions would certainly able to explain what the Indian art up to certain level, if not entirely. In fact, the very effort the profile the whole gamut of Indian art is fraught with uncertainties. But to understand the art of a certain country, we first need to understand its people and of course the land itself in its true essence, including the natural features and seasonal attributions.

If art itself is the manifestation of human intellect in the forms of creations and imitations that arouse our esthetic senses for a better understanding of life and its deeper meaning, then the collective Indian art has always been the perfect representation of a vibrant India through its civilizations to present day India. More importantly, these very complexities have able to nourish various art forms. These art forms, in a way have become the living embodiment of India’s connection with the other major civilizations. In fact, studying Indian history will never be complete without knowing Indian art. More so with the Indian art imbued with both the Western and Oriental art forms and movements, it has become the perfect representation of what constitutes the India. And rightly so, the Indian art constitutes every aspects of a vibrant India; in its truest colours, that Indians have able to preserve through the ages.

The importance of Indian art is evident in the scores of modern art galleries flourishing in Indian cities. What keeps alive these galleries alive and relevant in today’s world is in itself the answer to its own question. The differences, the values and the very notion of a nation that bound India as a cultural entity would have never been able to capture without art. And it would have been gross injustice to its people had there been only a single art form to represent what India actually looks like and what Indian feels. Thus, we have these numerous art forms occupying very important positions in our society. This fact, partially answers what constitutes Indian art. Indian art is what Indians feels. This, in a way, helps each of us to appreciate the Indian art as we have never able to understand the complexities that we live with for being an Indian. This is the esthetics that we seek to understand through the art.

But there is a worrying fact that’s haunting Indian contemporary art scenario like never before. With the flourishing of the modern art galleries, and the variety of art forms making headway in Indian art market, brings the insanity that drives both the art aficionados and creators to extreme. With everyone associated with the arts vying for their share of limelight and profit, the very fine line that differentiates an artist from the common man has virtually erased. Today, anyone can become an artist by creating collage of colourful or morbid strokes. The fine arts of painting, sculpture, caricature, etc. have reduced to mere crafts, for the selling’s sake. It would be a crime to even ponder about the ‘art for art’s sake’ in such a scenario. We have art exhibitions solely meant for selling. At times, it seems that the rich and the affluent can only cherish the art, whichever form it employs to represent life.

 !Hola, Amigos!


!Hola, Amigos!

Latinos are the fastest growing population in the United States, and are creating a large bilingual market. Librarians are often eager to attract, serve, and retain Latino patrons, and library services are sorely needed by the Latino community; but it takes more than adding a few Spanish-language books to the collection to meet those needs. Besides the cultural and language barriers library personnel encounter when interacting with this community, libraries generally lack the funding to engage in multicultural advertising as well as the time and specialized personnel to do it. This book provides a practical, easy-to-follow guide to creating a bilingual-friendly facility that will attracts Latino users. Hola, amigos!: A Plan for Latino Outreach offers users a systematic, orderly plan that directs outreach activity with worksheets, discussion reports, and easy-to-follow schedules, and more than 100 marketing ideas, tips, and examples from libraries around the country that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day activities. Many of the strategies can be applied to outreach of other minorities as well.

“”Languages are best learned when real-world information becomes the focus of students’ activities. In this respect, !Te Toca! definitely encourages advanced learners to focus on exchanging real-life information about the world around them. Moreover, since the topics and issues presented in the book are controversial in nature, they seem especially appealing to college students.”" Dr Maria Jesus Amores, University of West Virginia!Te Toca! is a thoroughly innovative approach to advanced language learning. Imaginative, exciting and fun, it uses language simulations to take students into a virtual Spanish-speaking world where they adopt a new Spanish or Latin-American identity. Creating a learning environment in which they need to use Spanish to solve a problem or engage in debate, the language simulations draw and expand on students’ linguistic, communication, and information-gathering skills.Covering a variety of engaging topics, the simulations literally put the students centre-stage, requiring them to think on their feet and speak exclusively in Spanish. The topics revolve around contentious issues and each chapter includes a simulation exercise with all its associated documents, as well as a lead text, comprehension questions, a guide to relevant points of functional grammar, associated exercises, a glossary of terms, and suggestions for written work.
