travelled to Delhi from Vrindavan at the behest of a wealthy patron For years the ‘Pandit’ musicians held performances and imparted music lessons to disciples; their music developed as part of the ‘Delhi gharana’ of Dhrupad music The most famous of them was Goswami Shree Lal Ji better known as composer and poet Kunwar Shyam Kunwar Shyam’s compositions in the Dhrupad style have been performed by Pandit Jasraj and D V Paluskar One of the compositions was also used in the 1953 film Ladki starring Kishore Kumar and Vyjayanthimala When the family arrived in Delhi in 1810 their patron had given them a house in Dharampura in the bylanes of old Delhi Now known as Goswamiji ka Mandir in Dharampura large parts of the property have been sold off but the family has been able to hold on to parts of it A temple hall which the family says could once hold “over 100 people” is unrecognisable today Five shops operate out of the premises Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making

are praised for your music by Goswamiji it is as noteworthy as the praise garnered at the Allahabad sangeet sabha” she adds Today traces of ‘Kunwar Shyam Gharana’ — a tradition of Dhrupad Bhakti music — can only be found in crumbling books of music which his descendants have inherited In the last few years Sharma and his family members have tried to archive the manuscripts of Kunwar Shyam’s compositions They set up a website in 2014 with some of the compositions along with recordings of the songs sung in a traditional manner The family is busy deciphering moth-eaten manuscripts said to have been written by Kunwar Shyam and his disciples “I have been in touch with musicians about holding a concert to showcase these compositions” says Sharma’s daughter Meenakshi “Our family history is

AP) Top News President Barack Obama sought Tuesday to reinvigorate his six-year-old call for the US to send humans to Mars by the 2030s a mission NASA has been slowly and quietly trudging away at The White House was calling attention to government contracts awarded to six companies to build prototypes for “habitats” that could sustain human life in deep space One such privately developed habitat _ an inflatable room _is already attached to the International Space Station Obama also said that within two years private companies like SpaceX and Boeing will taxi astronauts to the space station with NASA as a customer “These missions will teach us how humans can live far from Earth something we’ll need for the long journey to Mars” Obama wrote in an op-ed on CNN’s website He said the ultimate goal is for humans eventually to stay on the red planet “for an extended time” NASA officials and outside space experts said there is little new in what’s coming out of the White House on Mars something NASA has taken to calling its “Journey To Mars ” “There’s nothing big here at all unless you haven’t been paying attention” said former George Washington University space policy chief John Logsdon “It’s a re-focusing of the fact that he set these goals and NASA has been pursuing them” Alan Ladwig a former top NASA official in the Obama and Clinton administrations said he likes the intent “but it’s a bit late in the term to shine a light on the humans to Mars exploration” The president planned to discuss the initiative further when he meets with scientists engineers and academics at an innovation summit Thursday in Pittsburgh Obama first set a goal in 2010 to send humans to Mars by the 2030s but the initiative has attracted little attention since then Numerous Government Accountability Office reports have warned of the challenges in meeting that goal most notable a lack of substantial US government funding Read: Obama did not elaborate on what a Mars mission would cost or how the US would pay for it But he said it will require years of patience testing and education “The question is why and how does this support US national interests” said Scott

According to themchocolateparticularly the dark varietycontains chemicals known as flavanols which naturally open up blood vessels in the bodywhich means blood can flow more easily and the pressure drops “You don’t always need medication to reduce blood pressure This shows that there are some foods that can help” lead researcher Dr Karin Ried of Adelaide University was quoted by the British newspaper as saying For the studythe researchers combined the results of 15 other studies looking at chocolate and cocoa between 1955 and 2009 covering hundreds of people They found that for people with hypertensioneating chocolate could reduce the blood pressure by up to five percent But for those with normal pressure it had no effectthe findings revealed “This is a significant finding We’ve

story through multiple media could show you beauty in the everyday What if an exhibition is not about objects but ideas This is what designer Divya Thakur attempts in “Design: The India Story” The exhibition which simultaneously shows in two galleries in Mumbai is an engagement with product design that goes back nearly 150 years At the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) “Objects Through Time” encourages people to engage with five categories — Technology and Appliances Utensils Security Seating and Surface Design “Through storytelling we’ve attempted to show everyday design” says Thakur adding “For instance for the longest time we imagined that elevated seating came with the British But our research showed how pedestals and asans were always around even if it was a privilege of the royalty Through coins and sculptures we have shown spontaneous forms of seating” Classic designs are edged by contemporary designers including Sandeep Sangaru’s bamboo chair Sahil Bagga and Sarthak Sengupta’s Katran chair Nikita Bhate’s Planters Chair and Rooshad Shroff’s stainless steel chair “The primary purpose of any design is to fulfil a function If it doesn’t do that then the object is an indulgence and belongs to the realm of art That distinction needs to be clear” says Thakur This belief belongs to the ancient Indian notion of sustainability one of the eight “pillars of thought” in India’s history of design Concepts such as these are presented in “Ideas Through Time” the show at the Gallery Max Mueller Bhavan (MMB) “Traditionally before we made an object we always considered whether it was really necessary Even decoration is superfluous if it doesn’t serve a purpose; it needs to give rise to certain emotions or thoughts in the person looking at it” says Thakur She believes that designers in India and abroad must allow these values to guide their work But “Objects Through Time” does not provide the viewer with a cogent explanation of how these values are at work in the items on display Between familiar objects such as transistor radios hand-held embroidered fans and heavy iron trunks the exhibition does little to encourage people to think about why these objects were designed in specific ways However certain exhibits do offer intriguing insights especially those that were not made in India; many have been modified adapted or repurposed in our homes For instance the tiffin box a British invention came with two long spoons attached to its sides — hardly a utensil any Indian would have used at the time The ceramic bharanis that now store memories and pickles were used during British India to transport sulphuric acid to industries It was later appropriated to suit domestic use “When you look at handcrafted objects one may say it’s Indo-Portuguese or Dutch but then you begin to see Gujarati influences How did that happen and how did we adapt These are questions we present at the exhibition We travel from regional to contemporary to global influences” says Thakur The show also juxtaposes mass-produced objects against grassroot innovations In the section on lighting for instance modern marble light bulbs are set next to an innovative stove that gives off a steady light while cooking Founder of the Mumbai-based studio and concept store Design Temple Thakur believes the economy of mass production will continue to dominate in the future There’s a need for well-designed products she says But what’s missing is people’s active response to what they use “The day we start evaluating our objects more carefully markets will become better at creating products that function well and simplify our lives” she says The concept of time or the kalchakra explains itself at MMB “Every object goes through a cycle of inception and ultimate dissolution in Indian philosophy in contrast to Western philosophy which views time as linear In each new cycle the object reinvents itself and discards everything redundant So when we speak of disruption as a new buzzword in marketing it’s something India knew all along” says Thakur For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Aranya Shankar | New
