Minister of State for Culture Mahesh Sharma released three books, including one on "secret broadcasts" during the Quit India movement, at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) here on Thursday.
The books are titled "Jewellery: A Scientific Study of Social Tradition", "Ghats of Banaras" and "Untold Story of Broadcasting".
This book, the organisers said in a statement, is about hidden developments during the 1942 Quit India movement -- the "secret broadcasts" of the time -- and the contribution of political leader Ram Manohar Lohia in the movement.
The second book, "Jewellery", written by author-journalist Gulab Kothari, examines a ritualistic use of jewellery worn on occasions, and the meaning of possessing jewellery in an Indian context.
Calling jewellery-making a traditional occupation, Sharma said that now it is also being studied as a specialised stream of knowledge.
It is a monograph highlighting the importance of ghats, and is derived out of a documentation conducted at Varanasi, the organisers said.
