Bana is considered the foremost writer of Sanskrit prose and one of “the brightest stars in the galaxy of Sanskrit poets” (Kane) and is well-known for his use of obscure words and rare meanings of common words a good number of which have not been recorded in our standard Sanskrit dictionaries.

He has released the present edition for printing
