The Bihari-Satasai

Satya Dev Choudhary (Author)

The book is an English rendering in blank/free verse of Bihari-Satasai consisting of 713 couplets originally composed in Brajabhasa (a popular form of Hindi language) by Biharilal (Bihari), a renowned Hindi poet of 17th Cen. A.D.

The main theme of the book is the erotic sentiment depicting the union and separation of the lovers and their carnal gestures and movements at particular occasions. It also deals with the fascinating and charming beauty of the nayikas (ladies of various types) dressed in bright and shiny clothes and wearing glittering ornaments. The sakhi (female friend) of the nayika plays an important role in the union of the lovers especially when the latter is in sulky mood. An article 'Erotic Sentiment in Bihari-Satasai' given in the beginning of the book exhibits a lively picture of all the captivating and delectable events and affairs referred to above. Other couplets of the book, though in a very small number, are related with didactic theme, devotion towards God and the eulogy of the Raja Jayasimha of Jaipur (Rajasthan) – the patron of the poet.
