Description
About the Book :

In its attempt to look for an alternative aesthetic, the monograph initially exists today, taking note of the recent incursion new theories from the West in our academia and the various critical strategies now available for Indian critics. However, The point of contention it highlights implicit theoretical paradigms which are used exclusively while analyzing Indian and Western texts, as if there was nothing available the question: Could there be an alternative which can incorporate significant elements can be redefined, rearticulated so as to become the basic for our frames of reference? In this context he opts for a crucial emphasis on Bharata's rasa theory, which specializes in the study of emotions, as laying the bias for an alternative.

The monograph then examines the feasibility of emotive poetics, its ramifications emotions cannot be isolated from other human faculties such as intellect or reason-for all of them overlap and have blurred edges, they decisively point to the world of the body as making of discourses. It posits the nation as to how rasa determines the way literary discourses and their arthitectonics function and become thereby more meaningful as cultural process, its meaningful as cultural process, its impact resulting in the gradual refinement of man's emotions. Besides the book deals with the other well-known concepts of Indian aesthetic such as ritti, alamkara, dhvani, vakrokti, and aucitya in sum, covering the entire range of literary devices and strategies used by poets, and available for use in our critical discourses.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
