Aansu is a lyric of love. Aansu has all the qualities of lyrical poetry, namely, intensity of emotional experience, spontaneity of expression, subjectivity of thought and feeling, unity of mood, idea or sentiment, loftiness of imagination, depth of sensibility, succinctness of scope or brevity of form, resonance of rhythm and liquidity of metrical movement. Jaishankar Prasad was a passionate lover of woman and he found the ideal of womanhood in his own first wife. It is obvious from Aansu she was a perfect embodiment of elation, of that inborn loveliness which is characteristic of woman, of the brimming simplicity, innocence, and purity of the child, amiability of temper, affability of manners, inalienable modesty in spite of absolute intimacy, and that self-respect and quiet dignity which would not yield to the random gusts of her husband’s passion. Aansu is thus a romantic lyrical elegy par excellence. It combines sweetness with sadness but leaves an optimistic impression devoid of all pessimism. Aansu is a master piece of a classic of not only Hindi but of entire Indian literature.
