Stories and fables automatically emerge around the divine entities and prophets, which ultimately create a magical spell that bind people to the mystique of their spiritual leader.

These stories, in reality, are the devotional longings of the disciples of prophets and Gurus and serve as the vehicle of expression carrying the spiritual message to the common folk. These biographical sketches fill the hiatus existing between history and legend and eventually become spontaneous homage to the religious leaders.

The poetic rendering of such stories in different languages is a formidable task difficult to accomplish. But Satjit Wadva’s poetic genius and literary sensitivity made her attain an exceptional success in rendering the stories from Guru Nanak’s life into English Poetry.
