Tilakamanjari of Dhanpala: A Critical and Cultural Study

S K Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The Tilakamanjari of Dhanapala is a unique composition of Sanskrit prose literature of the 11th century A.D. which very truly follows the the Kadambari of Banabhatta. Dhanapala was an inspired poet who has a mighty impact of the genrotic exuberance  of the great letterateur Bhoja for the sake of whose recreation he composed his illustrious prose-romance. This Tilakamanjari prseents a unique type of Katha which though inheriting most of the victuals from Kadambari has brought into being something very delicious and superb in the descriptive and narrative materials characterisation and human psychology.  By giving in it a brief genealogy of his patrons Munja and Bhoja. Dhanapala has helped the ancient Indian historians in understanding the historical links in the regnal line up of the Paramaras. The vast and panoramic review of the geographical spots amply illustrates his ubiquitous knowledge about the topography of India.

The present study tries of examine the different facets of Tilakamanjari by grouping it into three major parts- Introduction, Dhanapala as a prose writer and the cultural Date in the Tilakamanjari. Which in the first and Second parts, the author makes an attempt to provide an evaluation  of Dhanapala's life and literature, the Third part gives and elaborate analysis of the geographical Date, Administration  of Statecraft, Social and Economic conditions, Religion and Philosophy and Education, Literature and Art.  The Author has indeed done here the gigantic task of elucidating the literary as well as cultural heritages represented by Dhanapala in his Tilakamanjari with the pen of the true master and skilled artist.
