`Parita Mukta has courageously taken on the long overdue task and her book offers a reassessment of the songs and persona of Mira ... the author has collected a true treasurehouse of material in the form of recordings of songs sung in Mira's name. For her field-work, Mukta has travelled extensively in the villages of Rajasthan and Saurashtra, recording bhajan sessions of low-caste groups in particular. This wealth of material is helpfully outlined in the prologue.' Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
