Correction: Tulsi Sahib and Tulsi Das

Published by at 9:26 am under Poetry Chaikhana Misc.

Several readers caught a significant error in my last post: Tulsi Sahib and Tulsi Das are two separate poets, and I mistakenly wrote about them as if they were the same person. Thank you for the correction! The recent poem I featured was by Tulsi Sahib (1763 – 1843), not Tulsi Das (1532 – 1623). While I mistakenly listed the author as Tulsi Das, the basic biographical notes I included, sketchy though they were, were correct for Tulsi Sahib.

At least I haven’t made the mistake of calling the poet Alexander Pope, Pope Alexander…
