Presenting photographs of Kashmiri Pandit poets given in "Bahar-e-gulshan-e-Kashmir," the two volumes  containing verses by hundreds of Kashmiri Pandit poets, with each contributor introduced with a brief biographical note. The work was compiled in 1931 and 1932, each running about 900 pages and published from Allahabad under the patronage of Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru. The work has been available online for quite sometime, however this is first time all the photographs from the work are being made available together. [Will be adding notes on the poets over the years as I come across more info. ]

[my mother-in-law, Jiji, who helped with the translation. Any additional notes and corrections are welcome.]


Chandra Bhan Brahman presented by Dara Shikoh to Shahjahan. Dara once asked Brahman to recite in the presence of Shah Jahan the following verse: "So greatly is my heart associated with infidelity, that many a time When I took it to Mecca, it returned a Brahman."
