Archaeology of the Indian Cave Theatre: A Study of Ramgarh Hill of Chhattisgarh

H L Shukla (Author)
Synopsis The student of theatre, wherever his particular interest lies, will accept that the Ramgarh hill cave theatre of Chhattisgarh State is the oldest known theatre of the world. We find in Ramgarh hill caves a richness of diversity of archaeological material (along with the cave paintings) which can scarcely be equalled in world. Compared with most other genre of theatrical literature, however, the repertoire of the cave theatre is considerably less prolific, less varied, less immediately appealing and partly for this reason the cave theatre of Ramgarh hill has been ignored both by archaeologist and theatrical historian. Historical factors produced an artificial break in interpretation of spontaneous drama in Chhattisgarh.

About the author

H L Shukla

H.L. Shukla (b. 1939) has created, and for forty years he has dominated the field of Indology and modern linguistics. By any criterion Shukla’s achievement is vast: he has published about seventy books and hundreds of articles. His mastery of a huge literature is awe-inspiring: in current affairs, in linguistics, history, archaeology: anthropology, sociology, psychology, folklorology. He doesn’t believe in heroes, but it is not surprising that for many he has become one. And there can be little disagreement that he has fulfilled his expressed hope that “I’ve done something decent with my life”. Dr. Shukla served as Professor and Head Department of Languages and Culture at Barkatullah University, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. Currently he is engaged in Cultural Thesaurus of India.
