The theme is home
Home has the magnetic pull for humans. Even
though many people have gone abroad and settled well in foreign
countries and now their progeny have also made it their home. The
mere thought of coming or visiting their original home is a time for
much excitement and happiness and I have found some groaning to go
back at the end of their holiday.
Glimpse into Sanskrit literary culture
In this week’s column, I would like to further
explore the Sanskrit literary culture and the important role that
Kavya plays in it. As I mentioned in the previous column, a major
guide to the understanding of Kavya is Srnagaraprakasa (Illumination
of passion) of king Bhoja who ruled over a fable court which is
today’s Madhya Pradesh from 1011-1055.
