The development of Brajb¨l¥, a mixture of Braj and Bengali, among devotees of the Bengali guru Caitanya, whose followers made Braj a pilgrimage place, attests further to the interregional nature of Krishnaite religiosity and the languages of its poetry, based often on the variety of Hindi in the Braj region. Braj Bhå∑å poetry, which soon developed a literary standard independent of its spoken dialect, most often addressed Krishnaite subjects, but in the courtly context, the relationship of Rådhå and Krishna merged with the ostensibly secular classical Sanskrit exposition of ß®‰gåra via the taxonomy of the hero and heroine (nåyak and nåyikå), and the modes of their relationship.
These literary dialects of Hindi were languages of courtly pastoral, as well as languages of “the street” and its living religious devotion. 27 To illustrate the folk-poetry side of this poetic situation, see the following verse from blind saint-poet S¨r Dås, who legendarily spurned the summons of Emperor Akbar, but was adopted by the Vallabha sect that worshiped Krishna with courtly pomp and circumstance. This famous verse was found in a booklet for the use of devotees, sold among the many small, colored books of the bazaar and the stalls outside temples28: Night and day our eyes rain [tears] The rainy season remains with us always Since Íyåm departed.
45 The political project of making Hindi a national language was thus intertwined with the Sammelan and the NPS, and informed their literary and educational projects. The linking of Hindi with Hindu partisanship is a legacy that still lives on. Indeed, many works of the early period of Hindi literature used Hindu epics for their subject matter (often for anti-colonial purposes), giving Hindi literature Sanskrit’s imprimateur, and linking this literature with Hindu nationalism, which itself referenced and self-validated with Hindu epic and Puranic themes.
