Rājataraṅgiṇī (राजतरङ्गिणी) or “river of kings” is a poem in Saṃskṛta (Sanskrit) in eight cantos. Each canto is called Taraṅga or Wave. The author of this saga of Kasmir is the poet Kalhaṇa who commenced his composition in the year 1148 A.C. (Śaka year 1070) and concluded it in 1150 A.C.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
