"Diving into the rich tapestry of Kashmiri culture and language, 'An Encyclopedia of Kashmiri Phrases, Sayings & Similes' is an absolute linguistic treasure trove. These 2 volume set of books have been masterfully curated by Dr. MK Raina & ML Raina, opening the doors to a world where every turn of phrase, every saying, and every simile is a window into the soul of the Kashmiri people.
They contain an exhaustive compilation of Kashmiri phrases, sayings, and similes, about 5000 in number, spread over nine hundred pages. An attempt has been made to differentiate and give Kashmiri definitions, of terms like phrases, sayings (proverbs), similes, idioms, axioms, maxims, and adages.
From the very first page, you're invited on an immersive journey into the heart of Kashmir, where the language resonates with history, tradition, and the nuances of everyday life. The book's pages are filled with a vibrant array of expressions that reflect the region's landscape, its customs, and the profound wisdom of its people. It's not just a collection of words; it's a portal into the collective consciousness of a culture.
One of the most captivating aspects of this encyclopedia is its ability to transcend mere translations. Each entry is accompanied by contextual explanations, allowing readers to grasp the cultural context and emotional depth that underlie every phrase. You don't just learn words – you gain insights into the way of life, the values, and the emotions that shape the Kashmiri experience.
The Kashmiri names of plants and animals, associated with the phrases and sayings have been translated into English and their scientific names are also included.
Through the carefully chosen phrases, readers are transported to the bustling markets, the tranquil gardens, and the vibrant festivals that define Kashmiri life. The vivid imagery created by the phrases and similes brings the sights, sounds, and flavors of Kashmir to life, even for those who have never set foot in the region.
The work has been presented simultaneously in three scripts, Roman (English), Nastalik (Persio-Arabic), and Devnagri (Hindi), to make it readable to as many people as possible.
This book is a must-read for anyone with an appreciation for the magic of words and the stories they tell."
