Adoption of novel themes in modern Sanskrit literature: Contribution of Bengal
Dr. Sushree Chakraborty
The literature composed in Sanskrit of early and medieval periods dealt mainly with the values and spirituality latent in mankind through a projection of universal outlook. But from nineteenth century onwards the scenario changed and the creative intellectuals from different parts of India started searching for new themes from the vast canvas of old and contemporary history. A great number of the erudite community of Bengal also, have adopted novel and unique topics as the themes and composed their ingenious pieces.
