Chandas (poetry)
Metrical poetry in Kannada and Telugu is called Chandas or Chandassu (Kannada: ಛಂದಸ್ಸು) and (Telugu: ఛందస్సు). Prose and poetry follows the rules of Chandassu to design the structural features of 'poetry'. Chandassu is a definable aspect of many definable and indefinable aspects of poetry. Chandassu generates rhythm to the literature when the rules are properly followed. Rhythm is important to literature as a preliminary attraction.Contents1 Construction of Chandas 2 Types of Chandas 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksConstruction of Chandas[edit] 'Chandas' is constructed based on the number of 'aksharaas' (syllables) in each line (also called paadam) of a poem.
