Hinduism - What Is The Harshacharita?


Harshacharita ("Harsha's Deeds").


The playwright Bana (7th century) wrote a drama on the ascent to power of Emperor Harsha.

Bana was a member of Harsha's court and hence a contemporary; his story includes some obvious embellishment as well as a lot of factual information.

Bana was a keen observer, and the Harshacharita's vivid descriptions provide valuable insight into courtly and ordinary life in his period.
