BAITAL PACHISI PDF

Probably she made it up, or heard it from someone else who made it up, given the Victorian propensity for drawing connections where there are none. It needs some definite editing. There is no logical progression to the text, it seems to start in the middle, and it ends without any real resolution without ever having achieved anything remotely resembling internal consistency. Also I can find no reference to the alleged translator outside of links back to the very text - posted on scribd, not exactly a scholarly website - which he is supposed to have translated. Seems this is at the very least a bad translation, if not an outright fraud

It was rewritten by the dramatist Bhavabhuti some time in the eighth century. It begins with the tale of King Vikram finding a vetala, or baital, depending on the translation, hanging from a tree. Vikram is egotistical and a macho character, so he immediately tries to capture the vampire. He cuts the branch away and seizes the vampire. He intends to take the vampire to a yogi named Shanti-Shil.

He eventually allows himself to be captured, and merely laughs and offers to tell Vikram a story. This part is pretty awesome. The vampire tells the king that at the end of every story he will pose a question or riddle to the king. If Vikram answers the riddle correctly, then the vampire will return to his tree.

Here too is an interesting ploy. The vampire is making an offer of going with the king if the king does not answer the riddles correctly. Surely it would be a simple thing for the king to pretend not to know the answers and be able to capture the vampire, right? Except Vikram knows all of the answers at the end of every story, and he has to answer them. In some versions, if Vikram does not answer even though he knows the correct answer, his head will explode. In other versions, Vikram is too egotistical not to answer a riddle he knows the answer to.

So he continues to have to recapture the vampire after every story. However, the vampire, a baital or vetala, is merely possessing the body of a corpse, and can simply leave it. After revealing this, the vampire leaves the body of the corpse it was possessing, and the king confronts Shanti-Shil. At the end, it would seem the two had formed almost a friendship. Holiday is a secretive squonk from deep in the darkness of the forests.

Baital Pachisi: An Indian Vampire Meta-Story

It concerns the wise King Bikram and a rather strange philosopher ghoul-vampire, a Baital sometimes spelled Betaal or Vetal. I have no clue about its historical origins, but Wikipedia attributes the tales to the 8th century poet Bhavabhuti, and identifies the hero, the fictional King Bikram, with the real King Vikramaditya of Ujjain BC to 15 AD. Here is a depiction of the core premise of the folktale by Harshad Dhavale public domain : The stories are curiously interesting because they set philosophical, moral and ethical conundrums in the context of a life-or-death struggle between Bikram and the baital. King Vikram faces many difficulties in bringing the vetala to the tantric.
