Definitions उपमेयोपमानानां क्रमसंबन्धः क्रमः । का. सू. ४.३.१३ शब्दस्य यदि वार्थस्य द्वयोरप्यनयोरथ । भणनं परिपाट्या यत् क्रमः स परिकीर्तितः ॥ स. क. ४.७६ <headword>गति</headword> गतिः Gatih: Movement: √gam ti <ktin = gati means movement, speed, going, advancing etc. It is an uncommon figure recognised by Bhoja only. Unlike other fig- ures it has nothing to do with the poetic excellence of word or meaning or dialogue or speech. Gati has been given special impor- tance by Bharata in his Nāṭyaśāstra. On the basis of Bhoja's treat- ment of this figure it is explained as some sort of stylistic pattern of poetry with regard to phonetic timbre, mode of pronunciation, musical tune or melody. Bhoja considers its importance purely from the literary value when it stands separated from the domain of music and drama. According to Bhoja Gati is fivefold: (i) drutā (set to quick movement), (ii) madhyā (set to moderate movement), (iii) vilambitā (set to slow movement), (iv) druta-vilambitā (set to a mixture of quick and slow movement), (v) madhya-vilambitā (set to mixture of moderate and slow movement). The following verse is an example of moderate movement: eg 1. ayi vijahīhi dṛḍhopagūhanaṃ tyaja nava-sangama-bhīrukaṃ vallabham. aruṇa-karodgama eṣa vartate varatanu sampravadanti kukkuṭāḥ. 🔍+ 🔍° 🔍- ⟲ ⟳ Edit summary (optional) Status Needs more work Proofed once Proofed twice Not relevant Only registered users can save changes.
