Bharavi
Bharavi
Description
Back of the Book

Bharavi, author of the Kiratarjuniya, one of the five major mahakavyas in Sanskrit, has been generally assigned by the scholars to the middle of the 6th century AD. First mentioned along with Kalidasa in the Aihole inscription of the Chalukya king, Pulekesin II, dated 634 AD, Bharavi is famous for the brevity and depth of his style (arthagaurava). According to popular traditions, he earned the sobriquet Chhattva Bharavi because of the poetic fancy conceiving the flower dust flown up by the wind to form a golden umbrella. His Kratarjuniya, an epic in 18 cantos, describes the circumstances that led to Arjuna's penance, his actual penance and his obtaining weapons from Lord Shiva. Valour is the main rasa. Professor A. B. Keith, while commenting upon the book, wrote, "There is no doubt of the power of Bharavi in description; his style at its best has a calm dignity which is certainly attractive, while he excels also in the observation and record of the beauties of nature and maidens."

Professor Mrinal Kanti Gangopadhyay, a distinguished cholar in Sanskrit, in this monograph has made a comparative study of all the available commentains on Bharavi and also presented his own views highlighting the positive achievements of Bharavi as objectively as possible.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
