The Sattasai offers a more realistic counterpart to that notorious theoretical treatise on love, the Kamasutra, which presents a cosmopolitan and calculating milieu.

Each poem describes an emotion or presents a situation. This is an elegant.

It would be fine to move it to Gaha Sattasai or Gāhā Sattasaī, or even Hala’s Sattasai, but I disagree that "Gahasattasai" is a single word. If you look at the sources in the article, * Khoroche’s edition (2009) calls it Hāla’s Sattasa ī * Winternitz’s A History of Indian Literature calls it Sattasaī * Ancient Indian literature: an anthology calls it the Gāhā Sattasaī, and later just the Sattasaī * Schelling’s book and review call it the.
