SrImathE Gopaladesika mahadesikaya namah:
Dearest Srivaishnavas,
I enjoyed reading this book review (when I bumped into this, while
searching for Hamsa Sandesa..
Sharing you with you of my pleasure.

MEGHA DUTAM AND SHRI HAMSA SANDESHAH -- A Parallel Study: S. Ranganathan;
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Kulapati Munshi Marg, Mumbai-400007. Rs.150. (Book
review from "The Hindu")

THIS BOOK is a comparative study of the two famous Sandesa-Kavyas (poetry
of transmitting messages) of two all-time great poets, Kalidasa and Vedanta
Desika. The heroes in the two kavyas get separated from their wives due to
force of circumstances and the love-lorn ones, in their state of
desperation, dejection and abject misery, spot a messenger by chance and
send messages to their much-loved wives.
