0 Reviews
The Shringar poetry is not simply a fresh school of poetry but is, in many respects, comparable to the great English romantic poetry excelling in the delineation of nature and flight of imagination. It is a unique effort of bringing under the umbrella of ras poetry, music, sculpture and painting, and a rare mix of scholarship and popular writing.
