Description
About the Book

A poet and art-critic Nilakantha Diksita (17th century A.D.) stands supreme among the galaxy of writers of eminence. His works pertain to different branches of literature and are considerable in number. He has to his credit Mahakasvyas, Laghukavyas, Nataka, Campu, Agamic texts and commentaries. His poems overflow with humour and suggestiveness makes them relishable.

Nilakantha was a many-faceted genius who occupied different positions of political power under influential rulers. But his mind was engaged in the constant search for truth which prompted him to retire to the banks of Tamraparni to lead a life of piety till his soul merged with the Supreme Being.
