This article discusses the question of the place of the “warta” genre in Braj in the hagiographic literature of India during the Baburids epoch. The article pays special attention to the issue of this genre as a new concept not only in the national Indology, but also in the whole system of world hagiographic literature. The author of the article has studied the hagiographic literature in the world literature, in particular, “Christian” and “Muslim” life literature to determine the place of “warta” genre in the system of world hagiographic literature. Christian life literature is considered to be Roman, Russian, Georgian, Armenian, Slavic, Bulgarian, and Serbian. Muslim hagiography is comprised of the Arabic hagiographic literature, which sources are Hadiths ; works in the genre “manoqib” in Uzbek literature ;as well as works of hagiographic genre “Tazkirat al-Abrar wa al-Asrar” (“the Life of the righteous and sinful”) in Afghan literature. In Indian literature the so-called “immortal words” (vachanamrut) became a source of information, then later they evolved into the genre of “warta” (life).
