Basavaraj Naikar translated Prabhulin.ga Li le by Camarasa into English as The Frolic Play of the Lord for the benefit of the non-Kannada readers, who are interested in Comparative Indian Literature, Comparative World Literature, Comparative Religious Literature and Multicultural Studies. In recent years Indians have realised the great need and importance of translation in the multilingual and multicultural context of our country. Such translations will pave the way for translation studies, comparative literary and cultural studies and nativisation and fertilisation of Indian critical sensibility by rejecting the Western critical concepts.
The Frolic Play of the Lord, written in the tradition of medieval poetry, may be described as a religious romance. Because of the strong dose of allegorical element in it, it is described as a Virasaiva Pilgrim's Progress. It may easily be compared and contrasted with the epics of other languages like Kamayani, and Paradise Lost in different aspects. It is hoped that this translation will add to the pleasure of the reader interested in Comparative Indian and World Literature.
