ABOUT THIS BOOK

Shringara is a metaphor of love in its various expressions including the spiritual dimension. Shringara is equally an aesthetic that explores the pleasure of being the lover and exuberance for the beloved, who is also manifestly the divine. Shringara journeys as the king of rasas through forms that bind the ancient to the modern. The book presents a multidisciplinary interpretation through poetry, painting, architecture, visual arts and brings alive the joy of beauty. Adorned with illustrations, myriad representations that seek to capture the essence of the rasa, Shringara will take you into the known and the unknown.
