Traditional Wisdom and current Perspective of Bronze Technology in Tamil Nadu; with special reference to Tanjore dist.

This award was given to me when I was pursing my Ph.D. first year. It was very helpful me to be more articulate by photography and travelling to Tanjore and Mamallapuram to meet many sculptors. My documentation is first work with detail work on bronze technology through theoretical and practical aspects. This award is very helpful to also practise the bronze image making by myself, with the help of practices knowledge I could understand the complete technology of bronze image making.

Study of the Pithora paintings by the Rathwas of Chhota Nagpur

I had been wanting to work on the Pithora paintings made by the Rathwas as a part of their religious traditions. The award enabled me to supplement library work with empirical fieldwork. This enabled me to develop a perspective on the social and religious belief patterns of the community. It will also help me in conducting further comparative research.
