Conclusion of the Grammar Book

Updated: Mar 9

I am about to write the conclusion of this scripture of the grammar book, which was written in India when the rest of the world and its civilization were in the form of a fetus that was about to bloom. Thus, India was the pioneer of not only art but also poetry, dance, song, literature, and many other fields. The soil of India was also the birthplace of humanity and civilization. The first poem occurred in the mouth of a sage known as Valmiki when he experienced a tragic incident in front of him. Then, the sorrow was converted into poetry in his unconscious mind, but later, he composed the world's biggest epic, Ramayana. Here, humanity took birth in the form of poetry. 


It's a motherland of music that defined the scales of several musical tunes for the first time by inspiration of several sounds of nature. In the lap of India, several dancing poses took birth to make worship for God in different manners. The country also explored the language of sculpture and defined its rules for the first time.


We, Indians, are about to forget everything, but truth never wipes, and still, India follows the same path as those great ancestors, consciously or unconsciously.


The art scripture was also promoted alongside Buddhism. Later, a few more scriptures of art were written after those aphorisms. In those scriptures, Chitralakshan is one of the notable documents precepted, - Without worshipping purpose, no painting should be composed since it’s a heavenly aptitude, so whimsical use of such talent could be considered a contempt of God. Similar to the said scripture, another book named ‘Shilpashastra’ was composed in the Gupta dynasty, where we can find some ancient Indian paintings that guide us on the process of making art.

India art and culture

The anonymous author of the art scripture emphasized the rhythmic balance everywhere of creativity. He stated without having a sense of modulation, a creation will never be pleasant. Emotion and rhythm are conjointly placed in a pivotal point of the creation of the Almighty. Endlessly flowing several waves of life also unconsciously coordinated with a force inspired by an emotional pulsation that motivates us to create. Hence, with a deep intuition, an artist can identify that pulsation and feel the creative spirit inside of themselves. Ancient Indian sages noticed that no straight line was present in the creation. All are created in several rhythmic curvatures that inspire creative energies to make something pleasant. Mountains, rivers, trees, creepers, clouds, waves of the ocean, and so many elements of nature silently revved up with their pleasing rhythmic balance that creates endless joy in the human soul. Hindu theology believes God is an iconic figure of bliss; therefore, his creative power also follows the same emotion sprayed everywhere. Thus, we feel happy when we get closer to nature. It is the secret behind our happiness, and it's true.


Similarly, when we create something, we feel happy. Because the creator of all the creative spirits becomes pleased to see how we appreciate or react to its creation. So, it’s not just an artist's creation but instead a worship of God that makes it happy, which reverts in our soul.


In India, the primary motifs of creation were to show reverence to God and its creation because Indian theology defined the way of living with humanity, peace, love, forsaking, and dignity in its culture that came from the Almighty creator.
