Gita-milindam is a famous Lyrics in Sanskrit written by Indian Poet, Vanikavi Dr.Manomohan Acharya. It contains 15 gunjans (songs) in different melodious rhythms. The Poet sweeped over untouched horizons and speakes for the common mass.The couple of bumble-bees are the natural singers and enjoyers of life 's honey. By taking them as anchors of his presentation of poetic message,the poet has not only shown a creative technique but also suggested his attitude to life. Looking at his off-beat theme, none can deny that he is projecting the voice of the mass and hence a postmodern poet.
