Narsi Mehta was the greatest and perhaps the most significant bhakta-poet
of Gujarati. His 100 songs translated here include 40 songs of the Smgara
na pado, 30 verses of Smgara Mala and 30 philosophical/devotional songs.
The 70 verses from the two Srngara collections treat the theme of
Radha-Krsna love play in a manner similar to the Gita-Govinda. A hundred
songs, representative of Narsi Mehta's philosophy, social message and the
portrayal of love-play between Radha and Krsna are for the first time
translated into simple and direct English verse.
