Srngarapadyavali presents a Sanskrit verse translation of two hundred selected Tamil poems on the subject of love; it also presents English verse translation of the same verses and a brief account of the many conventions governing Tamil love poetry. Some of them relate the sentiment to the physical background; for example, secret love develops in the hill slopes while separation is presented in the background of grassy meadows.

Throughout the work, love is presented at the highest level and sexy, obscene observations are totally absent. Idealised love is portrayed against exquisitely drawn natural background which reinforced the sentiment.

A book of transcendental aesthetic appeal that is bound to please as well as elevate the mood of the reader.
