Abstract: Verses that celebrate the mango, the rose-apple, the jackfruit and all things spring The heat wave makes it hard to believe, but it is indeed spring. And just as the trees put on a show with lush blossoms and luscious fruit, and excited bees and cuckoos launch into orchestral extravaganzas, bhasha poets too have responded to spring down the ages with their own fertile creations. The spirit of spring, personified as Vasanta, is usually described as a trusted helpmate of the god of love Manmatha, casting a spell on all creatures. The classical poets of most Indian languages use shringara, the mood of love, to create striking images of spring.
