Lal & Her Vaakh - An Encyclopedic Collection by R L Bhat
Lal is known and loved for her vaakh. That is how we know of her; save her vaakh, we know next to nothing about Lal. Yet we have many tales, in fact too many tales, of her activities, most of which got 'known' during the last two centuries. One author conjured up seven rebirths for her. Some had her feed and lead, poets born long after her. Others had her debate subtleties with seers who came to Kashmir, decades after her death. This book collates all 'vaakhs of Lal' and puts them in order of appearance. It gives the original Kashmiri text, in the English alphabet in a reader-friendly modification, the Rationalized Roman for Kashmiri (RRK), devised by R L Bhat. It also provides a succinct translation of the vaakhs. It also indexes the vaakhs, as per the source and antiquity.
