Details: Product Description The Bhakti saint-poet Kabir's sakhis/ dohas (couplets) have been a source of wisdom to people across the spectrums of caste, class and creed. His sakhis are his conversations with God, with himself and with us in everyday colourful tongue that leave a mark on readers of all ages. Several translations have appeared until now but this book by Chandan Sinha is a first of its kind. In his Foreword, John Stratton Hawley calls this a 'strikingly original book' that translates the sakhis in rhyme—as in the original—which is easy enough 'in Hindi, but it’s very much harder in English.' A short explanation follows each translation. It is a book to turn to every day. About the Author CHANDAN SINHA is an officer of the Indian Administrative Service, currently posted in Delhi. He has published two books earlier: Public Sector Reforms in India: New Role of the District officer (Sage, 2007) and Kindling of an Insurrection: Notes from Jungalmahals (Routledge, 2013).
