The Padumawati of Malik Muhammad Jaisi

Mahamahopadhyaya Sudhakara Dvivedi (Author) G.A. Grierson (Translator)
Synopsis This is possibly the most complete and authentic text and translation of the Pandumawati, or Padmawati, of Malik Muhammad Jaisi of Awadh. He flourished under Sher Shah in the the year 1540 A.D. Although there exist numerous version of the translations, Griersons’ work, ably assisted by M.S. Dvivdi, has become a standard. The work has remained unavailable for a long time after its first publication under the Bibliotheca Indica series of Asiatic Society Bengal. The publishers are proud to make this rare edition available to the academic community. Besides its interest as a key to a philological puzzle, the Padmawati also become famous for its contents. In itself it is a fine poetical work, and one of the few original ones, it is remarkable for the vein of tolerance which runs through it, - a tolerance, as the editor puts it, worthy, in every way, of Kabir or of Tulsi Das.
