Haba Khatoon: Makers of Indian Literature
Haba Khatoon: Makers of Indian Literature
Description
From the Jacket:

Haba Khatoon (mid-sixteenth century) was the consort of a king but attained immortality as the queen of song. The name of her husband, Yusuf Shah Chak, has been saved from oblivion in the light reflected from that of Haba Khatoon, the peasant women he adorned his palace with. A blend of country lass and queen, musician and poet, her personality has merged with the Kashmiri poetry and culture, through her passionate lyrics, vacans.

Legends have grown around her, and it is not easy to establish beyond doubt the authenticity of all the songs attributed to her. Based on the scant surviving material, Sri S.L. Sadhu builds up an account of her life and evaluates her contribution to the Kashmiri literature.

About the Author:

Sri Sadhu's works in Kashmiri have received awards from the Government of India. His Wuchha Prang has won a Unesco award. Author of two books in English, Sri Sadhu presents this monograph mainly to the non-Kashmiri readers.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
