I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 24. ART AND CULTURE

 

II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 

The Art and Culture sector was started under Social Welfare and Culture wing of the Administration in the year 1978. The Department of Art & Culture is now functioning separately in the Union Territory of Lakshadweep.  The entire indigenous populations of Lakshadweep are Scheduled Tribes and all the schemes and programmes proposed in the XIth Five Year Plan are for the conservation/preservation, promotion, development and dissemination of the invaluable cultural heritage of these tribal people. The schemes include setting up and running of cultural institutions like library and information centers, museums/archives, cultural centers and Grant-in-Aid to panchayati raj institutions, Governmental and Non Governmental organizations etc. for promotion of culture.

 

The Department has established a state central library at the head quarter island Kavaratti and one public library each in all the constituent islands in the year 1958. A small Reading Room Cum Library is functioning in the island of Bitra. The information needs of the local population are taken care of by these libraries.  All the Public Libraries except the Central Library, have been transferred to the Panchayats along with staff and assets during the Xth Plan period. The amount required for meeting the establishment charges of staff is released to the  Panchayats as Grant-in-Aid.  As per 2001 Census, the percentage of literacy in Lakshadweep is around 87.26. The Department proposes to set up a library in the Lakshadweep Secretariat at Kavaratti and provide minimum necessary infrastructural facilities during the XIth plan. One post each of Library & Information Assistant, Library Attendant & Library Helper are proposed for the purpose. Post of Senior Library & Information Officer in pay scale of Rs.8000-13000 proposed in the earlier plans shall continue during the next plan also.

 

The Government of India have been urging all States and Union Territories to set up museums and archives to preserve the invaluable cultural heritage of our great nation. In response to this call, the Administration has established a museum (Golden Jubilee Museum) at Agatti island and completed the first and second phases of construction of the museum building. The Department has yet to take up the construction of third phase to make it a full-fledged museum building. The U T Administration has established and another museum at Minicoy.  The island of Minicoy has a unique artistic heritage and cultural background worth preservation.  The Department proposes to continue these museums during the next Plan.  It is necessary to create a few posts to man and manage this museum on modern lines. The posts identified by the Archaeological Survey of India for Agatti museum and proposed during the earlier plans shall   continue during this Annual Plan also. The Department also proposes to establish ‘Lakshadweep State Archive' for the implementation of National Records Act 1993 and provide minimum infra-structural facilities during the plan.

 

With a view to supplement the efforts of the Administration is reviving the traditional art forms and tribal cultural heritage of the people of Lakshadweep, the Department proposes to implement various schemes through Governmental and Non Governmental organizations also. The idea is to revive the traditional art forms by way of conducting training programs, publishing of literary works by local writers, providing incentives to artists, conducting writers/painters camps, exhibitions, cultural exchanges etc. through Grant in Aid.  The Lakshadweep Kala Academy has been implementing lots of promotional programmes in this field with the Grant in Aid received from the Department.

 

              There are altogether 3 schemes under this sector which are all ongoing schemes.  An outlay of Rs.818.00 lakhs is proposed for   the XIth Five Year Plan 2007-2012.

4. Objectives of the scheme (Separately for each component)

 

The history of Lakshadweep is still obscure.  Due to the onset of western education and culture, the unique characteristic of island culture is being lost.  There is scope and necessity for conducting extensive research on the subject. The Department propose to take action to implement the ‘Public Records Act 1993' by establishing a ‘State Archive' so as to save whatever public/private records are left and available to help the coming generation and researchers and scholars to get access to them. For this purpose, it is necessary to collect the archaeological/archival remnants and preserve them in appropriate institutions. The Golden Jubilee Museum, Agatti, Lakshadweep, has to be strengthened by providing necessary infrastructural facilities during the Plan. It has been decided to incorporate a few marine aquarium tanks in the museum to make it more meaningful, educative and attractive. This requires some additional staff to mange and maintain the specimens round the clock. The proposal to set up an ‘ethnological Museum' at Minicoy made in the previous plan shall continue during the next Plan. It is also proposed to provide this museum with minimum staff. The Department also proposed to organize cultural festivals at island/UT levels, exchange programs, documentation, celebrate the national festivals with cultural programs and continue the services of Folk Dance Instructors on remuneration basis during the Plan.
