From the Inside Flap"Andrew Ollett's book is one of those scholarly breakthroughs that happen, with luck, once or twice in a generation. It reveals the richness of Prakrit language and literary modes with a precision and depth of insight never seen before; and it radically reformulates the relations between these multiple Prakrit domains and the cultural roles of classical Sanskrit, now seen to be profoundly, indeed inextricably, bound up with Prakrit and with all that Prakrit means for the way language is understood in ancient and medieval South Asia."--David Shulman, Professor Emeritus, Hebrew University

"Ollett offers a brilliant, original, and thoroughly engaging investigation of the complex language order of premodern India. Bringing to the fore the less-studied role of the literary Prakrits, his work makes a major contribution to our understanding of the history of language and literature in early India and beyond."--R. P. Goldman, Catherine and William L. Magistretti Distinguished Professor in Sanskrit and India Studies, University of California, Berkeley

I have no doubt our contemporary Authors get inspiration from composed old Mythological Poetry like the Vedas!
