Varanasi: A 105-year-old Urdu copy of Shri Ramcharitmanas has been found from a scrap market in New Delhi. The copy of Shri Ramcharitmanas, printed in Urdu way back in 1910 at Lahore, was found in a pile of torn books three years ago in a scrap market at Hauz Khas in New Delhi and was bought only for Rs 600 by the Sankat Mochan temple priest family.
The priest family came across the Urdu copy while searching for an ancient manuscript of Sri Ramcharitmanas which was stolen along with other precious articles related to Goswami Tulsidas. The Urdu version was written by Shiv Brat Lal.
