In the mesmerizing event “Jazba” organized at CP Gurukul, students took center stage to showcase their artistic prowess, each performance a vibrant exploration of the nine classical emotions encapsulated by the theme of Navras.

The curtain rose with an introductory performance, setting the tone for an immersive journey through the diverse spectrum of human sentiments. This opening act not only served as a thematic prelude but also engaged the audience, paving the way for a series of enchanting performances that delved into the essence of Navras.

“Navras” is a term derived from Sanskrit, where “Nav” means nine, and “Ras” refers to emotions or sentiments. In the context of classical Indian arts, particularly dance, music, and literature, Navras refers to the nine primary emotions or sentiments that are expressed through various artistic forms. Each “Ras” represents a specific emotional flavor or mood that contributes to the overall aesthetic experience. The concept of Navras is deeply rooted in classical Indian aesthetics and is integral to traditional performing arts like Bharatanatyam, Kathak, and classical music. The nine Rasas are:

  1. Shringar (Love/Beauty): The sentiment of love, beauty, and romance.

  2. Hasya (Laughter): The emotion of joy, humor, and mirth.

  3. Karuna (Sorrow): The expression of sadness, compassion, and empathy.

  4. Raudra (Anger): The sentiment of anger, fury, and intense emotions.

  5. Veera (Courage): The emotion of heroism, bravery, and strength.

  6. Vatsalya Ras – a celebration of parental love and affection.

  7. Vibhast (Disgust): The expression of disgust, aversion, or repulsion.

  8. Adbhut (Wonder): The sentiment of wonder, amazement, and astonishment.

  9. Shant (Peace): The emotion of tranquility, calmness, and serenity.

These Navrasas serve as a foundation for artists to convey a range of human experiences and emotions in a nuanced and aesthetically pleasing manner. They form an essential part of the Indian classical arts, contributing to the depth and richness of the artistic narrative.
