Poetry refers to the “speech the soul”.—Well-known Kashmiri rhetoricians like Mammata, the author of the Kavya-Prakasa, had said that one of the purposes of Kavya or Poetry was to teach the art of life (Vyavahara-vide). Kavya or Poetry was defined as “speech the soul of which is Rasa”. There were in all eight Rasas or sentiments; Shringara (love), Hasya (merriment), Karuna (pathos), Raudra (wrath), Vira (martial), Bhayanaka (terror), Bibhatsa (repulsion), Adbhuta (marvel), which were the essence of poetry.
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.
