Jung Nama Shah Mohamad

Description This is one of the most authentic contemporary chronicles of Anglo-Sikh wars in the post Maharaja Ranjit Singh period in Punjab. Written in the popular "Kissa Kav" tradition of Punjabi poetry, it gives an eye witness account of the battles. The poet uses all the poetic devices like "Baints" in his composition. Its poetic rhythm, diction and racy, fluent verse are one of the finest specimens of Punjabi poetry written in kissa kav tradition. It's another merit is its historical value of being an authentic chronicle of its times. It is also counted among one of the classics in Punjabi poetry both for its content as well as technique. The poets' use of imagery, vocabulary and phraseology is purely rustic Punjabi which strikes an immediate chord in the hearts of its readers. Some of his lines have become "Quotable quotes"[edit]
