Her interests lie in the intersections of culture, religion and politics. The Bhakti movement that flourished across various literary cultures, gave rise to a distinct genre of expression in Kannada. This was the vachana , loosely understood as free verse poems or sayings, which arose within the Kannada literary tradition during the 12 th century sharana movement. Although it did not develop with the exclusive intention of turning into a literary form, the language used by the sharanas, the content of their vachanas and the people they addressed through these vachanas, broke with the existing literary canon in Kannada and consequently, brought about a defining turn in Kannada language and literature.

The Vachanas of Akkamahadevi
The term Akka "elder Sister" is an honorific given to her by great Lingayat saints such as Basavanna , Siddharama and Allamaprabhu and an indication of her high place in the spiritual discussions held at the "Anubhava Mantapa" [ citation needed ]. She is seen as an inspirational woman in Kannada literature and in the history of Karnataka. She considered the god Shiva 'Chenna Mallikarjuna' as her husband, traditionally understood as the 'madhura bhava' or 'madhurya' form of devotion. Akka Mahadevi was born in Udutadi , near Shivamogga in the Indian state of Karnataka  around One of her lyrics, for instance, appears to record her experiences of leaving her place of her birth and family in order to pursue Para Shiva. Tharu and Lalita also document a popular claim that a local Jain king named Kaushika sought to marry her, but that she rejected him, choosing instead to fulfil the claims of devotion to the deity Para Shiva.
