The Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Bharatiya Jnana Parampara are three Indian epics that are studied in depth in new post-graduate diploma programmes offered by the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA). According to a senior official on Friday, the training is likely to start soon after receiving about 500 applications. The IGNCA, which reports to the Ministry of Culture, offers 11 courses, including four new ones that were introduced this year: Hindu Studies, Bharatiya Jnana Parampara, Indian Literature, and Museology. Our one-year PG diploma courses have been put on hold because of the COVID epidemic. And this year, we’ve started doing those once more.

Among the topics covered by Hindu, studies are the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Pramana, Tattva Vimarsha, and Purushartha Vimarsha. According to the IGNCA, students will have the opportunity to directly engage in intellectual dialogues and exchanges with top researchers in the area, conveying the present relevance of Hindu Studies. Bharatiya Jnana Parampara — The ability of Indian knowledge heritage to think out and beyond without any constraints is what gives it relevance today. This will cover a variety of topics, including the Vedas, Puranas, and Upavedas.

“The majority of candidates for the courses this year are working people, including researchers and those in the sphere of art and culture. These courses are primarily designed for mid-career professionals who want to advance their skills. Even those who reside abroad may apply, but those from Delhi-NCR are preferred “added the official. Postgraduate diploma programmes in cultural management, Buddhist studies, digital library and data management, and South-East (Agneya) Asian studies are among the old courses that are still offered. IGNCA was established in 1987 to investigate, research, and distribute Indian arts and to rekindle cultural exchanges between India and its neighbours, particularly those in South and Southeast Asia.
