Masked identities: Safeguarding India’s Intangible Cultural Heritage

The Chhau dance-drama performed since time immemorial mainly in Seraikella (Jharkhand), Purulia (West Bengal) and Mayurbhanj (Orissa) and the surrounding areas was recognized by the UNESCO as rare Intangible Cultural Heritage of India in 2010. The division undertook a survey of the Chhau dance form in collaboration with the Observer Research Foundation, Mumbai. This was later published in the form of a book- ‘Masked Identities: Safeguarding India’s Intangible Cultural Heritage’.
