Thang-Ta: Martial Art of Manipur
Manipuri martial art is called Thang-Ta (sword and spear). It is dedicated to fighting skill and worship. The Meitei creation of Thang-Ta goes back to antiquity. Ashiba was asked to create the Universe by his father Atngkok Shitaba. The movement and pattern of creation, ritualistically known as Thengou, was revealed in human movement patterns of Thang-Ta. Today, Thang-Ta has passed into oblivion, and survives in isolation. The film traces elements of this art against the blend of martial and spiritual elements in the psyche of the Manipuri people.
Directed by Shri Aribam Syam Sharma
Duration: 25 minutes 24 seconds
Urumi: Fighting for Survival
The film documents the lost heritage of Urumi a rare weapon of Kalaripayattu, the martial art of Kerala. In older days, it used to have seven flexible blades, running upto 12 feet, though no such specimen can be found today. The film traces its origin and tries to understand its mystical dangerous portents and symbolism. The martial art tradition goes back to the mythological time of Parashurama and is adumbrated in ancient manuscripts of Dhanurveda. The film imbibes the orality of Urumi from great masters of martial art and shows the rigorous and exacting training required under the vigilant eyes of a Guru for using it efficiently and appropriately. The women never lagged behind in using this art for survival. The film also traces the Nair resistance of colonial days, using Urumi.
