Salil Aggarwal, Abhigyan Ghosh, Radhika Mamidi


Abstract
Shayari is a form of poetry mainly popular in the Indian subcontinent, in which the poet expresses his emotions and feelings in a very poetic manner. It is one of the best ways to express our thoughts and opinions. Therefore, it is of prime importance to have an annotated corpus of Hindi shayaris for the task of sentiment analysis. In this paper, we introduce SUKHAN, a dataset consisting of Hindi shayaris along with sentiment polarity labels. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first corpus of Hindi shayaris annotated with sentiment polarity information. This corpus contains a total of 733 Hindi shayaris of various genres. Also, this dataset is of utmost value as all the annotation is done manually by five annotators and this makes it a very rich dataset for training purposes. This annotated corpus is also used to build baseline sentiment classification models using machine learning techniques.
