This observation has a lot of sensitive implications. The poet did 
not interchange traditional guruvulu and laghuvulu but used a 
style that is different from another style (traditional?). Once this is 
done, the guru-laghu status will automatically change. If we 
call one style traditional and the other non-traditional, we 
get into problems.
