This book , written in Hindi, translated into English and translierated in the Roiman Script, is meant to introduce the reader to the famous 'Dohas' of five Hindi poets: Kabir, Tulsi, Rahim Khankhana' Varind Kavi and Sheikh Farid.

It contains 523 'Dohas', which have been thoughtfully selected and faithfully rendered into English Language, lucid, rhythmical and appropriate. The translation attempts to retain the beauty of rhyme and assonance, the special features of a 'Dohas', which account for their musicality and memorability.

Each poet is first introduced with a brief biographical-cum-critical note which gives a foretaste of the 'Dohas' to come. The book begins with a general introduction to the form and features of the 'Dohas', which is fairly comprehensive and informative. Then follow the series of selected 'Dohas' in Hindi, their transcription in the Roman script, and their translation into English.

This book will be warmly received by lovers of literature, including especially those readers who are not familiar with Hindi in the Devnagri script
