Chandbardai


Chandbardai
   The composer of Prithvirajarasau who narrates the incidents of this story in early Hindi or Hindivi. The text of his book available now carries apocryphal elements that indicate that it ac-quired the present form between 1460 and 1675. Whether Chandbar-dai was a contemporary of Prithviraja Chahamana III (1180-1192) is an open question, but the language he uses in some parts of his book does suggest that it was penned in its original form in the 15th century.
