The Book convincingly argues that the Deccan’s multilingual and multi-religious traditions shaped the evolution of Indo-Persian and produced over nearly four centuries, a distinct literary and cultural world marked by a syncretic character which defied social, political or religious boundaries. The author also makes the case for collaboration between Persian and the regional languages of India, particularly Marathi. It is the rich legacy of Persian in the Deccan Courts with their vast treasures of literature that is preserved in Dr. Devare’s work.


 

Tukaram Nagesh Devare

Tukaram Nagesh Devare was born in the former Nizam state of Hyderabad. His early education was at Nanded-presently in Maharashtra-after which he studies at Fergusson College in Poona-now Pune. After obtaining MA, PhD and LLB from Bombay University, he taught Persian and Urdu at N. Wadia College, Poona as the Head ofr Department and Vice-Principal. Dr. Devare was a scholar of Indo-Persian language and culture in medieval India. His scholarship was however, not limited to just Persian and Urdu, but he also knew English, Arabic, Hindi, Marathi and had some knowledge of Pashto and Telugu.
