Alongside Draupadi, Savitri, Sita and the like - ladies of the lotus - can be placed the name of Rup Mati, whose fame set the ancient walled city of Mandu among the high places of romance, and her verse still verdant in the heart of Malwa.

Many are the stories about her birth, her love for Baz Bhadur, her sublime beauty, her chastity and her skill in music and poetry. Like Laila and Majnun and Shirin and Farhad in Persia, Rup Matri and Baz Bhadur have been the heart throb of many a generation in Hindustan.

Here , as told by Ahmad-ul-Umri, is Rup Mati's story alongwith the 26 poems attributed to her, translated and introduced by L M Crump. This work also includes 8 color plates belonging to the Persian Manuscript and nine B&W photographs.
