An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



Avatar Bhatt

Avatar Bhatt (15th century) was a court-poet to King Zain-ul-Abidin and a noted scholar of Sanskrit and Persian. He is known for his work Banasur Katha (The Story of the Demon Banasur), a long narrative poem of haunting beauty which is valued, apart for its poetic merit, for the light it sheds on the state of the Kashmiri language in the 15th century when it had just emerged from the Prakrit-Apabhramsha stage to assume its modern form.
