The Sacontala free pdf Excerpt from The Sacontala: Or the Fatal Ring In one of the letters which bear the title of edifying, though most, of them swarm with ridiculous errors, and nil must be consulted with extreme diffidence, I met, some years ago, with the following passage: "In the north of India there are many books, called Natac, which, as the Brahinens assert, contain a large portion of ancient history without any mixture of fable-" and having an eager desire to know the real state of this empire before the conquest of it by the Savages of the North, I was very solicitous, on my arrival in Bengal, to procure access to those books, either by the help of translations, if they had been translated, or by learning the language in which they were originally composed, and which I had yet a stronger inducement to learn from its connection with the administration of justice to the Hindus- but when I was able to converse with the Brahmens, they assured me that the Natacs were not histories, and abounded with fables- that they were extremely popular works, and consisted of conversations in prose and verse, held before ancient Rajas in (heir public assemblies, on an infinite variety of subjects, and in various dialects of India: this definition gave me no very distinct, idea- but I concluded that they were dialogues on moral or literan topics- whilst other Europeans, whom I consulted, had under stood from the natives that they were discourses on dnncing, music, or poetry.
