Bhartrihari occupies a prominent place among the ancient poets of Sanskrit literature.
He belonged to the eminent tradition of Valmiki, Vyasa, and Kalidasa, the greatest poet and dramatist of Sanskrit literature.
Bharatrihari was a king, a jilted lover, a ladies man and a gifted poet.
His Shiringarashatakam is erotic filigree delicately carved in rich detail.
In this anthology, Bhartrihari, deals with the theme of love, seperation, of deceit, of rendezvous and of burning passion.
From the innocent to the well versed, Bhartrihari has something to ignite and yet entertain the mind of anyone aesthetically inclined.
Shringarashatakam is different from Kamasutra: it excites because it deals subtly with human emotions of love and emotions of love and rejection.
