About The Book:

KALHANA's Rajatarangini is not only a classic of Sanskrit narrative poetry but is the earliest extant history of Kashmir. Written in the middle of the 12th century, in the age when the crusaders of Europe Were fighting in Western Asia, Kalhana's masterpiece is a unique blend of authentic chronicle and imaginative poetry inspired by the poet's passionate love of his exquisitely beautiful homeland.

This famous English translation by R.S. Pandit was first published in 1935. It was out of print for many years until the Sahitya Akademi published a reprint I 1968. It was further reprinted in 1977. The Akademi is happy to make available this third impression of its reprint. Except for minor typographical corrections, the text, Introduction, Foreword and the learned translator's copious notes are retained exactly in the original edition.

This Sahitya Akademi is grateful to Srimati Vijaya Laxmi Pandit for permission to publish this edition of which the realities she has graciously donated to the Prime Minister's Children's Fund.
