Vikramankabhyudayadalli Karnataka-Karnataka in ‘Vikramankabhyudaya’

Author: Dr.Jotsna Kamat

Place: Chitradurga

Smt. Kamat has given an analytical study of this literary source, being authored by Mummadi Someshwara, the famous author of Manasollasa. She draws our attention particularly to the description of Kalyana Nagari and Karnataka during Kalyana Chalukyas by Someshwara. This sanskrit Champu poem is an incomplete palm leaf literature. It deals with about 56 countries and their representatives residing at Kalyana Nagara. The description of fourth caste has been noted. It is interesting to note that ‘Adhistita Dhama’ which is supposed to be synonymous to ‘Five Star Hotel’ of modern times, and varieties of eatables and beautiful Chitrabhavanams have been highlighted in this literary source. This essay denotes cultural and social study with a literary touch.
