Warris Shah: Makers of Indian Literature
Warris Shah: Makers of Indian Literature
Description

About the Book:

Warris Shah (18th century), the greatest among the Kissa Writers of Punjab, has enthralled generations of Punjabi readers through his immortal Kissa Heer. Unique among Punjabi poets, he caught the spirit of the legend as none else did, although the ballad had been composed by many.

Containing some 600 odd stanzas, Kissa Heer, the saga of two ill-fated lovers, is rich both in its emotional variety and range. What gives it strength and style is its folk idiom. It is the people's language that he has fashioned into a verse of beauty and splendour. The village sayings and aphorisms have been exquisitely woven into the fabric of the poem. In face, there is none who has translated the Punjabi way of life into song and story as movingly as Warris. Amrita Pritam aptly calls him "a solace for the sufferers, a balm for the bruised hearts"

About the Author:

Gurcharan Singh (b.1917), the author of this monograph, is a short story writer, novelist, playwright, literary critic, poet, biographer and educationist. He is also the recipient of number of awards. In this monograph he interprets the 18th century Punjabi romance mainly for the benefit of the non-Punjabi 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.
