About this title:

Synopsis: This is a well known cycle of stories in classical Sanskrit literature. The tales are told by a pet parrot to its young mistress to distract her from going to her lover during her husband's absence on a journey abroad. For seventy nights the bird detains the heroine Prabhavati at home with accounts of illicit liaisons, ensuing complications and clever escapes. The present is the first complete translation into English of the extant Sanskrit text which dates to about the twelfth century AD.

About the Author: Aditya Narayan Dhairyasheel Haksar was a career diplomat for many years. He was India's High Commissioner to Kenya and the Seychelles and later the Ambassador to Portugal and Yugoslavia.
