Manjusha folk art on the verge of extinction

PATNA: The famous Manjusha art of Bhagalpur and its neighbouring ar-eas is on the verge of extinction due to lack of support from the Bihar government. Manjusha art is essentially local in its form and content mixed with a very popular folk tale of Bhagalpur namely `Bihula-Vishahari Gatha’. Now this art form is mainly confined to few museums and books. Two Bhagalpur scholars — professor, ancient Indian history and culture, TMBU University, Bhagalpur, Rajiva K Sinha and Bhagalpur Museum curator Om Prakash Pandey — have taken pain to document this dying art by pub-lishing a collection of its paintings, folklore and its origin. “This book would be useful for art lovers and future historians to un-derstand the rich heritage of the ancient Anga (modern Bhagalpur). It will help them in understanding the importance of the idea of `history at your doorsteps,” said emeritus professor of history, languages and culture of Asia, University of Wisconsin (US),… Read More

Angika Art : Manjusha Art

According to legend, Manjusha art or Angika Art traces its origin to the Bihula-Vishahri or Mansha folktale, popular in erstwhile Anga Pradesh and found also in an altered form in West Bengal. The Manjushas, which are made up of Jute straws and paper, depict sketches of different charecters, apart from those of Gods and Goddesses, thereby giving a vivid description of the entire mythology attached to Bishahari puja. The paintings are drawn primarily on the occasion of the Bishari puja, celebrated usually in August to propitiate the snake gods. As Bihula’s boat was decorated by a character called Lahsan Mali, this art has been confined to the Mali or gardener caste. Like Madhubani, Manjushas too are pictorial reflections of folklore, poetry and the larger cultural consciousness of the Anga region. Manjushas are temple-shaped boxes, made of bamboo, jute straw, and paper. Manjusha is considered by many as modern art , due to their form and abstract themes. This is why the art -lover who discovered… Read More

Ancient art form fighting to survive active

BHAGALPUR: The Manjusha art of Bhagalpur and its adjoining areas is struggling for endurance as there is no support from either the government or social organisations, unlike Madhubani paintings of Mithila, Zadopetiya of the Santhal Parganas and other folk arts of Bihar. The artists associated with the art are now compelled to switch over to other trades to make both ends meet. Incidentally, this art, which is also popular as “Angika art”, is attached with mythological background of the ancient Bishari Puja of “Anga Desh”, the name by which this zone was known centuries ago. Manjushas are temple-shaped boxes made of bamboo, jute straw and paper. Local folks believe that by worshipping the Bisharis (the Goddesses of snakes), they shall not fear snakebite. Speaking about the Manjusha art, octogenarian Chakravarti Devi, the living legend of the 20 odd proponents of this art form, said, “Only three colours – red, green and yellow – are used… Read More
