Habba Khaatoon & Arnimaal
The Queen of Songs

Compiled and translated by
Trilokinath Raina

Born in 1922, Trilokinath Raina is a renowned authority on Kashmiri literature. Besides translating and editing a volume on modern Kashmiri poetry, An Anthology of Modern Kashmiri Verse, and speaking on post-Independence Kashmiri poetry, he has also contributed to traditional lyric-poetry of Kashmir by translating works of poets like Habba Khaatoon and Arnimaal into English. His translations from Kashmiri have been periodically published in the Vishvabharati Quarterly, Poetry India and Poetry Eastwest.

Prof. Raina has taught English language and literature at S. P. College in Srinagar, and the universities of Banaras and Sugor. During 1961-64, the Government of India sent him on deputation to Ethiopia as Professor of English in the Haile Selassie I Military Academy, Harar. He has also been Reader in English at the National Defence Academy, Khadakvasla.

Habba Khaatoon & Arnimaal
Habba Khaatoon and Arnimaal pays tribute to the lives and works of two of Kashmir's best-loved lyric-poetry composers, Habba Khaatoon and Arnimaal. Separated by at least two centuries, both of them are acknowledged today as the queens of Kashmiri lyric-poetry. While vaakh in Kashmiri poetry is described as a vehicle for expressing any mystical or spiritual experience, vatsun gives voice to the pain and the ecstasy of the human soul. Habba Khaatoon, who lived in the sixteenth century, composed her legendary vatsun, a tradition that Arnimaal continued two hundred years later, in a style that was her own. The volume contains a bilingual edition of the Kashmiri verses alongside their English rendition by Trilokinath Raina, who also provides a detailed introduction to Habba Khaatoon and Arnimaal.
