In spite of the fact that the entire world is divided in to various countries and regions because of the geographical considerations, there lies a unity of thought and ideas among the people operating in various fields. This is very much vibrant in the areas of creative literature and literary criticism because almost all the creative authors and critics draw their inspiration from similar types of sources and circumstances. As per the eastern tradition of literary criticism, three equipments are necessary to enable an ordinary human being to attain the height of a seasoned literary architect. They are-i) power of intuition or imagination; ii) Culture and iii) constant practice. It is misleading to mention that only a selected few are endowed with that extraordinary power of imagination or pratibha. The eternal truth is that human birth is attained after performing a lot of penance during previous births since the human life is the best instrument of implement the will of the divine which is always directed for the all-round development of the human society. His life is precious and mind is an endless mine of knowledge and inexhaustible storehouse of wisdom. It is the environment, which is responsible for awakening that unique power of man and enables him to express his feelings and imaginations in his own style. So unity of thought is related to the unity of environment and ultimately this situation leads to the unity of voice and expression and this is a very common phenomenon in the world. The study of this common phenomenon has become very much interesting among the scholars of different fields and this results in binding the human community as a whole by generating an atmosphere of universal brotherhood and global co-existence. This particular aspect of study has, no doubt, assumed much significance after the commencement of a formal movement of globalization and reducing the entire universe to small global village.
