Description
About the Book

The heterogeneous character of Thyagaraja's lyrics is a recurrent source of academic discourse. The lyrics present a socio-cultural unit and refer to a plurality of achievements. An uncontested view is that, Thyagaraja stands for a single ideal of the culture of devotion.

Prayer is the resultant of Bhakthi and Bhakthi establishes its due station as a Rasa. Prayer rests on and rises from the triple base of, music, devotion and poetry. Thyagaraja offered "Ragarathna malika" to Rama.

Lyrics do picture the environmental overturns. Political effervescence and cultural efflorescence characterise the period. Politics and Poetics, Money and Metaphysics are isolated and this operational scalene throws a challenge to the assumed theoretical dualism between material and cultural. Art becomes a social factor when society makes it one. Social realism is the realistic depiction in art of contemporary life as a means of social comment.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
