KUNVARESH, one of the many poets and scholars kept by Guru Gobind Singh, came from a Kashyap Brahman family of the village of Bari, near the ancient town of Kara (26Â°7`N, 80Â°22`E), in the present Fatehpur district ofUttar Pradesh. He translated into Bhakha, written in GurmukhT script, “Drona Parva” of the Mahdbhdrata at the instance of Guru Gobind Singh in 1695. Only a fragment of this work has survived. It is preserved in the private collection of the Maharaja of Patiala. A manuscript in the Sikh Reference Library, Amritsar, contained another work by Kunvaresh, Rati Rahasya Kos, a panegyric on Guru Gobind Singh.
