Yadav made this announcement during meeting with Jalalpuri, who gifted Geeta written in Urdu couplets to him.
He has translated the Shrimad Bhagwad Gita into over 1,700 Urdu couplets, says the sacred scripture is the biggest literature on worldly education in the country.
The book not only translates shlokas (verses) in chaste Urdu shers (couplets) but also comes across as an effort to recapture the essence of the sacred text.
The Yash Bharti award is given to eminent persons from the State in the fields of art, culture, sports, literature, medicine, journalism and social service.
