The South Asian dancing-beloved's courtesanship, her enigmatic presence, her romantic allure, and her socio-economic position are all explored within the framework of this book. This text presents English translations of major Urdu (and a couple of Poorbi) lyrics from classic South Asian films. This book provides commentaries on each song, thereby presenting a composite, literary portrayal of the figure of the dancing-beloved as viewed through the collective 'verbal lens' of these three films. The text addresses a general scholarly audience that would be interested in South Asian films, language and culture, and may also prove to be of interest to a more specific set of academics who might find the translations useful from a literary perspective.
