TANSUKH LAHAURl, a devoted Sikh of Lahore who later lived at Ranthambore in Rajasthan. Tansukh had two of his sons living at Anandpur under the patronage of Guru Gobind Singh. They sent a copy of a translation of Hitopadesa, made by one of the Guru`s poets, Lakkhan Rai, to their father at Ranthambore. The prosodic forms used by Lakkhan Rai were doha, or rhymed couplet, and soratha or couplet with centre rhyme. Tansukh decided to reversify the contents using the form chaupal or stanza of shortlined rhymed couplets with other metres interspersed. He completed the work in 1684 and named it Rajniti Granth. Its language is Hindi.
