Haridasaru chithrisida aithihasika hagu samakalina jana jivanada amshagalu-Historical and Social life factors in the Songs of Haridasas

Author: Dr. Srinivasa Havanur, Smt. Nirmala Ganesh

Place: HosadurgaChitradurga

The authors have interestingly picked out historical incidents like Maratha’s war, their siege of assets, destroying the chastity of women; praying chamundeshwari to bestow health and prosperity in their songs. The values of Gandhiji, the role of Jagannatha Rao Chandrike in politics, famine, agriculture-all these have been included in the Kirthanas of Haridasas which were indicative of their concern of social life.
