I recently stumbled upon a fascinating piece of modern Sanskrit literary history in a library, the Lenināmṛta, a poetic biography of Lenin in Sanskrit. It garnered a lot of interest when I wrote about it on Twitter, so I thought I should maybe just put the whole thing out here to generate more conversation.
The work is dedicated to “Sarasvati, the Divine Spirit of the ever-progressive and ever-unfordable eternal stream of knowledge and her sincere devotees of all time and all climes.”
I will probably write more on this in the future.
Thanks to IS for the pdf.
