Don Quixote in Sanskrit

In spite of other obligations I spent a good part of last night browsing this site with some very nice trivia about the life of Marc Aurel Stein. Make sure to check out the Bodleian mss. of smaller works of Kashmiri interest here. The circumstances of a Sanskrit and Kashmiri translation of Don Quixote (!) are here. I am quite sure this was a well-known fact but it came as a surprise to me. For yet another nice site about Stein click here.
