humility and profound regards, the book is dedicated to Shivite and Sufi
Saints and Saint - poets of Kashmir as also to Sages and Mystic-seers the
world over, all Kashmiris irrespective of their caste, creed, colour or
their ways of life.
And to my late
parents, Smt. Zai-Mali and Shri Sri Razdan/ Raina, both admirers of Sadhaks
and Faquirs alike.
To late Mr. E.D. Tyndale Biscoe, a true Christian in the right spirit, saintly conscious
democrats, humanist and interested in Kashmiri ethos which qualities he
might have imbibed by an in depth study of the holy Bible and inherited
from his late father, Canon Tyndale Biscoe and his lionhearted multi lingual
saintly headmaster. Pt. Shanker Koul about whom he said, 'What my Shanker
does not know is not worth knowing."
