Lokaprakāśa (लोकप्रकाश) is the name of a work ascribed to Kṣemendra (11th century): one among the Kashmiri scholars who glorified the legacy of rhetorics with a new interpretation of the soul of poetry (aucitya). A total number of 38 works (viz., Loka-prakāśa) have been recorded in the “New Catalogus Catalogorum”, which are composed by Kṣemendra. He is not only a poetician but also a scholar of high repute.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
