Description

From the Jacket

Panditaraja Jagannatha (1600 A.D.), a Sanskrit poet-critic and musician, and a court poet of the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, is regarded as the last of the giants of Indian poetry and poetics. In him, all that is best, original and brilliant in the art and science of poetics is gathered and held in perfect equilibrium. But what is striking is that in Sanskrit, there is no instance where poetic genius and critical acumen have flourished and fructified in a more abundant measure than in the case of Panditaraja Jagannatha.

Though a follower of the Dhwani school of poetics he was bold enough to leave the beaten track carved by the ancient rhetoricians and expounded new principles of criticism.

His style is distinctive and charming, and an exquisite and harmonious blend of sound and sense. In depicting Sringara or love Jagannatha, never crosses the bounds of good taste.

His keen observation of the society, his insight into human psychology, and his capacity to laugh away the human weakness are fully revealed in his anyoktis.

It may honestly be claimed that in the world of Sanskrit poetics we shall not perhaps look upon his like again.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
