question further here and it will be discussed at some length in the chapter on "Srinagra"

  The present-day falls very much below high ideals. The art of suggesting a world of ideas by a few strokes as found in our Kalidas etc. is very rare in the present-day writers. Moreover the unscientific and improper of somehow securing some particular letter adjustments deprived it of its essentials and filled it with all sorts of unconnected with occasion. The present-day poetry in Telugu is more versification than poetry. It is a well-sounding mass of word-problem with scanty meaning. The poetic vision that can see through ages giving  out standing universal sentiments is hardly to be seen in it.

BHAVAKAVYA.

  There is a wrong idea among some that Bavakavya is a new innovations out literature. Bhavdhani of indian  poetics is very old and poems like Soundaryalahari are Bhavakavyas. The word bhavadhwani in Indian poetics  is more definite than the term "Lyric" in modern Western poetry which can be applied to some to some aspects of all poetry. As for conjugal love we see it in its completion is separated from the category of Bhava and a given a higher place under Rasa.Devotional raptures fall under bhava and love of children and nature also may come under it

THOUGHT AND CULTURE.

  Much of the present-day poetry is raw imitation of western writers and others and betrays a lack of maturity of thought and cultural background. bare imitation of outward features without the inner life cannot but result in mockery.
