The ancient legend of Puran Bhagat is part of the folk-culture of Punjab and other states of north India. In medieval times Kadiryar wrote two versions of the story in Punjabi. Shiv Kumar Batalvi's Luna is based on this legend. His recreation is modern and realistic and a powerful assertion of the Dalit and feminine viewpoints.
