Perhaps the only Saint, poetess of the Northern India, Meerabai, represents the inherent rebellious urge of the Indian women suppressed for ages under the false notions of pride and prestige evolved by male chauvinism. She revolted against them and sought succour in her unbridled love for her chosen deity, Lord Krishna. Her poems convey her agony and ecstasy in a very simple language that touches the listeners' heart instantly.
This small book contains not only her biography revealed in the form of a story but also her most popular lyrical poems together with their text, the Romanised version and their rendering in Hindi and English. This unique poetess-saint from the Medieval times is deemed as one of the 'gems' of India's 'Bhakti-Era' and this book reveals all about her life and creations in a most systematic way.
