Tax included.

Pabuji, a medieval Raput hero from the deserts of Marwar, is widely worshipped as a folk-deity capable of protecting against ill fortune. The principal form of worship entails the night-long singing of Pabuji's deeds by bard-priests or bhopos. This takes place in front of a long painted cloth, or par, which functions as the temple of the deity and depicts those same deeds. This book chronicles the epic narrative in English free verse as well as interesting details about the words, the music and the par itself.
