Pu Ti Na[edit]

Pu Ti Narasimhachar was very good at Bhavageethe and other forms of poetry. He thought of poetry as a path to God. He was not happy with the arbitrary labeling of different poems into genres based on narrow considerations. He considered rasa-svadana as the fundamental goal of all poetry. -- Heavy chariot 19:45, 13 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Kannada Literature[edit]

I am working on an article on Kannada Literature in general (offline) - I think we should merge this with Kannada literature once it is complete and redirect "Kannada Poetry" over there; I will do so if no objections are noted in some days. --ashwatha 10:24, 22 Aug 2004 (UTC)

yes, that would be appropriate. --Hpnadig 17:40, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)


A comment from someone who followed the "What links here" page from the haiku article: If vachanas are pithy comments, then they would be more like senryu, the humorous counterpart to haiku. It would be very interesting to see an example or two to get a better idea of what they were like. gK 19:41, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)

we'll be adding a few of those to kn wikibooks or wikisource soon. Stay in touch. --Hpnadig 17:37, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Since they are short, you might include one in the article. For examples, you might look at the haiku or waka articles, or even the Basho haiku that is included in the Samurai article. [[User:GK|gK ¿?]] 18:31, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)
short? I don't get it.
Somewhere, I forget where, there is a Wiki-policy (or maybe it is just a strong recommendation), to not include whole poems in Wikipedia articles. For most short poetry forms, however, it is almost impossible to really understand the form without seeing an example, and I see no problem with including examples of haiku, tanka, etc. within a Wikipedia article.

hey gk, I'm finding it difficult to follow what you've been telling and whats happenign around with poetry stuff. I really like to add up stuff, but am finidng it difficult, especially with exams around the corner. I'd love to reply to your queries on irc, if you can turn up over there. but not here. this is consuming a lot of time for me in this crucial moment. cheers, --Hpnadig 13:30, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)
It's not a big deal, so don't worry about it. Good luck with your exams. [[User:GK|gK ¿?]] 14:05, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)
