Dhadian Di Mang

Description This is a poetic rendering in the folk style in the Kissa-kav tradition. It deals with several miraculous deeds performed by some of the Sikh Gurus. It is based on oral history and imaginative flights of fancy. It is meant to be read and recited before the rural audience which believes in such myths and make-believe stories. The author has used several popular poetic devices to narrate these episodes. It entertains as well as instructs and highlights the spiritual powers of Sikh Gurus. These myths are associated with several Sikh shrines scattered all over Punjab. Writings such as this have a mass appeal for the devout followers. Its literary merit is limited, though it represents a genre in Punjabi poetry[edit]
