The ballad of Dhola and Maaru was composed in the 16th century by Kallol, a poet who lived during the reign of Raval Hariraja of Jaisalmer, in Dingal, the language used by the ancient bards of Rajasthan.

Dhola and Maru were married in their childhood at Pushkar, and as was wont in those days, carried on living in their separate homes. Subsequently, when in his youth, Dhola married Malvani, a princess of Malwa. On hearing this, Maru was overcome by grief, and in desperation asked the birds to carry her messages of love to Dhola. Seeing her sorrow, her parents asked their bards to visit Dhola's home in Marwar and remind him through their heart rending songs, of the pangs of separation being felt by Maru, his child bride of yesteryear. Dhola was so moved by their songs that he hurried to Maru's home on the swiftest camel. After spending a few days with her, Dhola brought her to his home in Marwar, when his once child bride and the bride of his adult years, Maru and Malvani lived together as one happy family.

Here the couple is shown as per their traditional iconography, mounted on a camel, the preferred means of transport in the deserts of Rajasthan during the medieval times.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
