Francis William Bain (1863–1940) used to be a British author of delusion tales that he "claimed "were translated from Sanskrit.

The first of those used to be A Digit of the Moon (1898), which Bain claimed was once his translation of the 8th a part of 16 of a Sanskrit manuscript given to him via a brahmin.

In the tale, the king Súryakánta falls in love with the clever and gorgeous princess Anangarágá, who will marry basically the suitor who asks her a query she can't resolution. The king, along with his shrewdpermanent buddy Rasakósha, units off to win the hand of the princess.*

The Indian tales of Francis W. Bain have been released within the overdue nineteenth century and the early twentieth century. They purport to be translations of unidentified manuscripts. although, those books will not be at once derived from Hindu texts or traditions. Bain was once ultimately unveiled as a author of orientalist fantasies, yet through that point he had a faithful readership who may perhaps care much less. He endured to press on with the sequence until eventually there have been 13 volumes. this can be therefore a innocuous literary hoax on a par with Bilitis. which isn't to claim that those books wouldn't have their appeal, really should you like early myth writers, equivalent to William Morris or Lord Dunsany. simply do not use them as resources for info approximately Hindu mythology.**
