2012 June UGC NET Solved Question Paper in Tribal and Regional Language, Paper III

Read the following passage carefully and answer question No. 1 – 5.

The music and dance performances in Jharkhand are invariably collective, never solo, where there are no audiences. In the Akhra all are performers; some of them are musicians, some singers and other dancers. That is why in Jharkhand, there is no dividing line between the performers and the audience. Infact, the audience waits for their turn to perform or to give the performers a break. The audience and the performers are one and the same in Jharkhand.

Jharkhand dances – Whether Adivasior Sadan are similar, their musical instruments are similar and the sentiment behind the songs is similar. The difference of their Mother languages, Agneya, Dravida and Sadani disappear as the emotional background is the same. The style and the body movements involved in the Adivasi or sadan music and dance are similar. Their respective inner distinctiveness produces variety in their style of presentation. Look at the dances of the santhal, Munda, Ho, Bhumij and Kharia, the Oraon and the Sadan, your eyes will be glued to them. It would seem as if waves are rising and falling in the ocean of bliss. The nature and spirit of all Jharkhand dances are the same in their original shape and vibration. The dances of Jharkhand are altogether different from those of the plains.
