Overview for The Songs of Daya Bai: Daya Bai Ki Bani

The number of surviving works by women writers in pre-modern Indian literature is very small. These authors include Andal, Mira Bai, Bahina Bai and Sahajo Bai, and their works record their deepest emotional and religious experiences. The poet-mystic, Daya Bai, wrote in Hindi in Delhi during the eighteenth century. Osho Rajnesh has called her "A little cuckoo", meaning that she was "a sweet singer like the Indian koyal. On an Indian summer night, the distant call of the cuckoo; that's what Daya is ...a distant call in the hot summer of this world." This small book offers readers her voice in a simple English prose translation. It will be of interest to students of literature and religion, and to those who seek a deeper understanding of Indian society and the place the women in it.
