The epic poem Padmāvatī was composed by Jaisi in ad 1540 under the patronage of Sher Shah Suri. It was taken up for translation in the tetracentenary year of its composition. In 1940 Shirreff completed the bulk of the translation which was started by George Grierson. The English rendering of it has definitely caught the essence of the poem of the master poet. The poem revolves around the life of Padmāvatī, the Rajput queen of Chittor. As a worthy disciple of Kabir, Jaisi still shines today as a real pioneer in the path of Hindu-Islamic cultural rapproche­ment. One point of debate is whether Padmāvatī was written in Persian or Kaithi characters.
