The sensual unfolding of David and Bathsheba's love story-the bathing scene, David's infatuation, his pursuit of Bathsheba and their eventual union-is strikingly portrayed in the language of the gods through its shringara rasa or the erotic mode, by a writer better known for the sex manual Ananga Ranga.

This is a retelling of the Biblical story - David and Bathsheba - in Sanskrit. From the introduction: "Here the story is recast in classical Sanskrit, along with that language's traditional imagery and indigenous additions, by an established writer at the north Indian court of a Lodhi prince of Afghan origin.

The two indigenous additions: 1 The relatively lengthy erotic aspect added to the narration. This was part of Sanskrit poetry Shringara in the 16th century, the time when this was written. Did I read it in Sanskrit? There is even a discussion on whether it is men or women who enjoy themselves most in bed, and, incidentally, whether mothers or fathers love their children more. Diacritical marks are used in places, but not as per the recognised standard nor with consistency. Some Sanskrit words are italicised, some not; and at times the same word is italicised in one instance and not in another.

In one case, the name of a prince is spelt differently in two consecutive paragraphs. The notes too seem not to have been fully thought through. It is always difficult to get the notes in such a book right: too much and you irritate the reader for whom this material is familiar, too little and you lose everyone else in a maze of names and foreign words. Haksar has always striven to reveal Sanskrit literature in all of its glorious technicolour, rescuing it from the whitewash some try to apply, and lifting off the veil of greyness through which the majority view it.

And this kaleidoscopic collection, in over-representing the colourful and entertaining, will certainly help to further this aim.
