Maithili Lyrics:
Dr. Subhadra Jha’s edition published from Varanasi is till date the best collection of Vidyapati’s poems. Various good editions of his poems have been brought out but none is as comprehensive as the one brought out by Amulyacharan Vidyabhaum and Khagendranatha Mitra. It is a revised edition of Nagendranath’s important collection of Vidyapati’s poems and has been published by Sharatkumar Mitra.
