Survey, Documentation and study of Konkan woodwork art tradition

I undertook this project soon after submission of my doctoral thesis to the Department of Archaeology, Deccan College, Pune in 2012. This award has helped me in conducting village to village survey of the wooden temple architecture that mostly belongs to 18th to 20th century. This is observed in the Konkan region of Maharashtra. The challenge was to document the wooden structure before its further deterioration by the weather and human encroachment (In this region a new concept, rather fad is spreading speedily which is harmful to the heritage structures.

Mature Harappan Architecture in Haryana: An Archaeological and Ethnographic Perspective

My interest lies in the study of Harappan period, application of ethnoarchaeology for understanding the continuation of tradition, and paleo-anthropological studies. In Indian context the application of ethnographic observation becomes very important since there is an amalgamation of modern as well as primitive tradition living together.
