Sassi Punnu

Description This is a poetic composition in the "kissa kav" tradition of Punjabi folklore poetry. It narrates the love-affair and its tragic consummation of the legendary lovers of Punjab-Sassi & Punnu. This "kissa" written in several metrical Punjabi devices is well-written in a fluent, communicative diction and carries the reader along with its narrative. It has rhythm, melody, suspense, metrical variety and emotional appeal of a good "kissa" or narrative poetic verse. It is a good specimen of ancient "kissa-kav" genre of Punjabi poetry[edit]
