What is the purpose of Satire

To criticize an institution, person, or group, indirectly

The fall of anything or anyone is a cause for humour, something to laugh at, something to laugh about. Satires make use of this principle. But a satire it is not a mere humorous poem, but pure social criticism made immortal by attiring it in the form of poetry. Satires bring human mind to the loweliest of things or attitudes described in them, but their ultimate purpose like all other poetic forms is to elevate human mind.
