A senior official said on Friday that around 500 applications have been received and the courses are expected to start soon. IGNCA, functioning under the Ministry of Culture, is offering 11 courses, which include four new courses – Hindu Studies, Indian Gyan Tradition, Indian Literature and Museums. Which have been launched this year.

Courses will be focused on Ramayana, Mahabharata, Vedas and Puranas
The official said that due to the Kovid epidemic, our one-year PG diploma courses had come to a standstill. We have restarted them this year. Also four new courses will focus on Indian epics – Ramayana and Mahabharata, Vedas and Puranas. Hindu studies will include topics such as Tatva dispute, Purushartha controversy, Pramana, and Ramayana and Mahabharata.

IGNCA said the students would be provided with the opportunity to participate in intellectual discussions and exchange with leading scholars of the field, which would bring to the fore the contemporary relevance of Hindu studies. The relevance of the Indian wisdom tradition lies in its ability to think outside and beyond without any constraints. It will have other subjects including Vedas, Puranas and Upavedas. These courses are largely targeted at mid-career professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge and most of the applicants for the courses this year are working people, including researchers and those working in the field of arts and culture. Even those living abroad can apply. But the focus is on bringing applicants from Delhi-NCR.

The existing older courses are- Post Graduate Diploma in Cultural Informatics, Cultural Management, Buddhist Studies, Digital Library and Data Management, South-East (Agneya) Asian Studies. IGNCA was established in 1987 to explore, study and disseminate Indian arts, to revive dialogue in art-related areas between India and its neighbors, especially in South and Southeast Asia.
