ACK-078: Narsinh Mehta

An out of print ACK #094

He was born in Talaja (near Bhavnagar), in 1414(?), Vad Nagar Brahmin by caste.

At an early age his mother, father and uncle died. He lived with his brother and sister-in -law. From an early age he liked the company of Sadhu-Sant, so heard and sang many Bhakti Songs (poems that are prayers). He had immense faith in God and social life was of no interest to him. Narsinh Mehta faced lot of difficulties in his life time. His wife Manek died at very early age, his son passed away in his young age, Kuvar Bai, his daughter become widow. He was left with his widow daughter in law, besides King Ramandlink always created problems Narsinh Mehta but Narsinh Mehta's life revolved in Bhakti.

In his bad times the Almighty was always his rescue. Lord Krishna helped his daughter during her "Mameru". The Lord also helped his son during his marriage and at the time of Narsinh Mehta's father Shradh. Lord SriKrishna garlanded Narsinh Mehta in assembly of King Ram Mandlik.

Narsinh Mehta has composed all these happenings in his poems, which became very popular later. Prabhatia, Bhajans, Paad, Sri Krishna Nee Baal Ras Dan Lila, Prabhu Nee Bhakti, Gyan Na Padhu, Sudama Charitya are some of his best compsitions, which are extremely striking. Bhakt ShriMadh Bhagwat and Geet Govind are also in his poems. His poems have carved a ninche on our minds and heart. He died at the age of 66 in 1480(?).

I think this is the problem :

For free accounts, there is currently no time limit on how long uploaded files will be stored as long as you access your account (i.e. login to your account) at least once every 60 days OR at least one of your files is accessed (i.e. downloaded) every 30 days.

Please help.

"This file is currently set to private. If this problem persists or you need further assistance, contact support." Could the uploader please make it public for the benefit of all ACK lovers? A humble request.
