It is indeed a pleasure and pride to offer to the readers hitherto unpublished work Laghu Ramanayam of Krishnavadhuta. This is a great contribution. He has been
a champion in all the fields of Philosophy, Rhetorics, Alankara Shastra, Vyakarana and Itihasa Puranas; So, here, Ramayana Sangraha is a great contribution to the
treasury of the poetic world.
How true !! what the world, the sun will have missed to see, the poet sees it. He is a visionary, after all. Perhaps with his genius, perhaps with his poetic insight
or perhaps taking a leaf or inspiration from age-old works, has taken the story and has given a twist or a turn, to show the spendour is altogether a different light,
from a different angle, keeping himself extremely careful, differing slightly from Mahabharata Tatparya Nirnaya of Acharya Madhwa or the Mularamayana. He
has spread his wings of imagination freely, but very carefully. He has poetic right and poetic justice for such a liberty!!
Pandit P.V. Upadhyaya has in his brief introduction given a beautiful portrait of the uniques of the poets talent and the work.
