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 have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
