Description

In the Indian history of middle ages, Raja Bhoj holds an eminent place. Next to Vir Vikramaditya, he has dominated the Indian mind. Hi power and influence, religious and philanthrophic deeds, and his practice of showering honours and gifts on poets and scholars have come down to posterity in folklore, folk tales, literature, stone engravings; and all this places him in the galaxy of great literary and historical figures of India. Nearly 34 works are attributed to Bhoj. Among these are works on such subjects as Dharma Shastras, astrology, medicine, grammar, poetics, yoga, fine arts, drama, and many others. In many works of Sanskrit literature, the writers have quoted from the writings of Bhoj and many volumes have been written on him. I have tried to give a peep into the life and times of this great and good ruler, and historical and literary figure, who is the hero of folklore and many folk tales. As this booklet is meant for neoliterates, I have included here only those things which may be of interest to them. For writing this booklet, I have taken help from such volumes as "Raja Bhoj," "Bhoj-Prabandh," ( iv ) "Bhoj Aur Kalidas," "Singhasan Dwatrinshati," and some journals. I would like to express my indebtedness to their authors. I present this booklet to the reader with the hope that besides providing some ntertainment, it will present to him a cultural picture of the times of Bhoj and will also add in some way to his general knowledge.show more
