Sigmatic and periphrastic future in epic sanskrit
Barát, Denis ; Strnad, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Štipl, Zdeněk (referee)
Sigmatic and periphrastic future in Epic Sanskrit - Abstract: Sigmatic and periphrastic future are constructions of Sanskrit grammar whose full range of functions still remains understudied. The main problem arises with the question about the difference in their uses. Even though their definitions and the differences between them are already described in traditional grammars, actual usage in texts doesn't always align with them. Similarly, discrepancies can be found among Western grammars of Sanskrit, and different authors give different rules. In this thesis, I will first present the development of these constructions from their roots to later Indo-Aryan languages, then I will look at their actual usage in Epic Sanskrit, represented by the epics Mahabharata and Ramayana. Because of the large number of occurrences in the corpus, a sample of the sigmatic and periphrastic future will be taken, numbering 500 occurrences in the Mahabharata and 200 in the Ramayana. They will be compared with the definitions in the grammars of Sanskrit. Keywords: Sanskrit, future, sigmatic future, periphrastic future, Mahabharata, Epic Sanskrit, Ramayana

Stahl, Matěj ; Strnad, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Hons, Pavel (referee)
The thesis deals with the historical development of the grammatical tradition of Hindi languages, focusing mainly on selected specifics of Hindi grammar - ergative constructions, absolutive, and verbo-verbal expressions. The aim of this thesis is to compare and clarify the development of understanding of the above mentioned language phenomena and to find out what was the approach of individual authors to Hindi, what terminology they used, and what role their education and the background conditions played. At the same time, the thesis deals with the very reason of the origin of individual grammars in the context of historical development of the Indian subcontinent.

Multikulturalismus v Indii: Selhání politiky diference
Krejčík, Jiří ; Hrubec, Marek (advisor) ; Hříbek, Martin (referee) ; Strnad, Jaroslav (referee)
For the 70 years since Independence, India has been facing a two-fold problem: on the one hand, there is a strong need of a just society on the basis of cultural and religious diversity. On the other hand, however, there is a strong urge to find an overarching unifying idea which could keep the polity together without any risk of further fragmentation. Taking the communitarian philosophy of Charles Taylor and his distinction between the politics of equal dignity and politics of difference as the basic conceptual framework, the thesis pursues three different objectives. First, to prove that affirmative approach towards recognition of minorities does not provide stability in the Indian case. Second, to rehabilitate the Nehruvian secularism as a viable state ideology of independent India. And third, to interpret the Indian political discourse on the level of political practice as a struggle for hegemony between the elites and bourgeoisie in the Gramscian sense. The rise of identity politics and Hindu nationalism is thus perceived not as an outcome of the failure of the Indian secularism as such, but rather of its ineffective application and subsequent crisis of legitimacy. Keywords: India; multiculturalism; politics of difference; secularism; anti-modernism; Hindu nationalism; hegemony; passive revolution
The passive voice in old Awadhi
Sokolkina, Polina ; Strnad, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Melnikova, Nora (referee)
This thesis concerns with an investigation of the passive voice in Old Awadhi on the basis of one of the most important and extensive works composed in this literary dialect of Hindi - Padmávat of Malik Muhammad Jayasi (ca. 1494-1542). The main objective of the work is to compare different kinds of passives in Old Awadhi to the ones of modern standardized Hindi, both in terms of form and and in terms of its possible modal meanings. Besides theoretical description of formal and semantic aspects of the passive voice and analysis of passive verb forms in Old Awadhi, supported with a numer of specific examples, the thesis contains a description of the literary and linguistic context of Padmávat and a brief characteristic of Old Awadhi. Key words: Hindi, passive voice, modality, Old Awadhi, Jayasi, Padmavat
The Cow as a Workshipped Animal and a Political Symbol: The Cow Protection Movement in the Modern India (Goraksha Movement)
Hyhlíková, Zuzana ; Strnad, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Štipl, Zdeněk (referee)
In my thesis, I have attempted to describe the development of the cow as a domesticated animal to a political symbol in India as well as its consequences. Although, the cow, like other animals, was used for sacrifices, and people ate its meat in Vedic times, over time it acquired higher status than other animals. Because of its connection with Brahmanism, it has become one of the main symbols of the nationalist Hinduism and it is used for ideological purposes. The symbol of mother cow embodies the entire mother India for orthodox Hindus, who do not hesitate to defend her in all kinds of ways. The militant offshoots of the Hindu nationalist organizations turn their hatred against people who have traditionally been killing cows, especially against Muslims and Dalits. In the name of cow protection, they attack their opponents and incite communal riots. Political party BJP led by current Prime Minister Narendra Modi fights for cow protection at the political level. There have already introduced certain forms of cow slaughter ban in the states where BJP controls the government. Due to the appeal of the Supreme Court in July 2017, the nationwide prohibition has not been applied yet.
Arabic and Persian influence on Hindi and Urdu
Stahl, Matěj ; Strnad, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Marková, Dagmar (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to characterize and divide the Arab-Persian components of Hindi and Urdu languages, as well as to describe the linguistic relationship between Hindi and Urdu and how Hindi translations of the same Urdu text differ. The first part of the thesis deals with the characteristics of the context of the language exchange on the Indian subcontinent, especially the Arab-Persian influence and the linguistic spheres, which were affected the most. The second part is an analysis of the Urdu text, tangibly Manto's short story Ṭoba Ṭek Sing and parallel Hindi translations, to help delineate and define the boundaries of Arab-Persian influence between Urdu and Hindi and within Hindi itself. It was discovered that the boundaries among Hindi translations can not be defined and the degree of borrowing acceptance varies depending on the translator.
The Christian Ashram Movement in India
Štipl, Zdeněk ; Vavroušková, Stanislava (advisor) ; Berounský, Daniel (referee) ; Strnad, Jaroslav (referee)
1 Zdeněk Štipl: The Christian Ashram Movement in India Abstract This thesis deals with the Christian Ashram Movement. The Movement represents a remarkable experiment of Christian inculturation in India, through which Christianity attempted to penetrate the cultural as well as the religious world of India. In spite of its long- lasting presence in India, approaching almost 2000 years, Christianity is still generally regarded a foreign element in the country. The story of Christian ashrams has been developing continuously throughout the 20th century and the idea of an ashram can be found in use across the various Christian denominations. First ashrams were established by the Protestant churches, especially in southern India. However, the Catholic Church got hold of the Movement in the late sixties, as a consequence of changes that were brought into the life of the Church by the Second Vatican Council. The Movement reached its peak in the seventies and eighties. At that time the number of ashrams in existence exceeded one hundred, they were found in every linguistic region of India, and the idea of a Christian ashram spread out not only to the neighbouring countries, but even across the globe. In the first chapter a brief overview of the history of Christianity in India is presented through the prism of...
Konarak: Architecture in the Context of Religious Policy of the Eastern Gangas
Jelínková, Silvie ; Strnad, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Ondračka, Lubomír (referee)
The great temple of Konarak in Orissa, built in the shape of the chariot of the sun god Surya, is one of the most famous hindu monuments in India. Even in the state of ruin it has always attracted attention of scholars, especially art historians. This thesis aims to present the Sun temple in a broader context of the time and place of its builder, and tries to propose the roots of its construction and causes of its collapse - both intrinsically connected with the religio-political climate of Orissa during the reign of the Eastern Gangas. The thesis is divided into four chapters. The first chapter deals with the royal temple policy, pursued by Orissan kings, and shows "the royal temple" as the means of legitimation of royal power. The second chapter addresses "tutelary deities" of king Narasimha, builder of the temple. These are Surya of Konarak, the sun god, who was the deity of all-Indian significance, and Jagannatha of Puri, the form of Vishnu, who is the state deity of Orissa. The third chapter focuses on Konarak in comparison with Puri as the places of pilgrimage. The fourth and last chapter presents a brief overview of the architectural traditions of India, specifically of Orissan architecture, of which the Konarak temple is the crowning example, attention is then turned to the exceptionality...
Malaiyaka Tamil Youth in Sri Lanka: Values, Aspirations, and the Forming of a New Elite
Novotný, Radek ; Vavroušková, Stanislava (advisor) ; Strnad, Jaroslav (referee) ; Hons, Pavel (referee)
Radek Novotný Malaiyaka Tamil Youth in Sri Lanka: Values, Aspirations, and the Forming of a New Elite Malaiyaka Tamils are a minority and lowest-status group within the society of Sri Lanka. A majority of them were brought by the British colonialists from India to work on their coffee, later tea plantations in the course of the 19th and 20th century. They were deprived of their basic civil rights in 1940's. However, the Malaiyaka Tamils have been undergoing a process of considerable social-economic changes over the last three decades, which was launched especially by the attainment of citizenship, growth of educational opportunities, and growth of civic and political awareness. The young Malaiyaka Tamils have an opportunity to become the first relatively well-educated generation and new elite of their ethnic group. This work attempts to analyse the prospects of the Malaiyaka Tamils youth's upward social mobility process by investigating their aspirations, values, and attitudes. I conducted field research in the so-called Hill Country of Sri Lanka, and I collected data by using methods, especially, of semi-structured interviews and questionnaire survey. We can assume that the target population will undergo a process of structural upward social mobility, and will become the new social- economic...
