Book Description


THIS work, elsewhere referred to as Problems Connected with Some Technical Terms Used by Bharata, has now been changed to Seven Words in Bharata: What do They Signify. This has a history, rather personal, but I feel obliged to mention it.

Till very late I did not know that I would ever be called upon to write a book dealing only with the textual problems of the Natyasastra. I started writing it more as a by-product while working on the Sattvikabhavas. So long as I was studying alankara at the feet of my esteemed guru, Mahamahopadhyaya, Kalaprapurna, Tātā Subbaraya Sastri garu of Vizianagaram, I did not doubt the familiar or popular explanation of the Sattvikabhavas. It was later when I began to study the texts on alankara independently that I felt a growing discontent with the usual explanations. By the time my ideas took concrete shape I was engaged in working on Indian Iconometry in Viśva-Bharati under the late Dr. P.C. Bagchi, then Director of Research and later Vice-Chancellor of Viśva- Bharati, and the impulse to write something on the Sättvikabhavas became irresistible. When I asked him for his views, with his habitual generosity he gave me ready encouragement, and I proceeded with the work.
