An Anthology of Modern Hindi Poetry
Description
An Anthology of Modern Hindi Poetry

Hindi, since its inception has been the language of revolt. It emerged as a powerful tool of expression around AD 750 when Sarahapa, a Buddhist monk during his stay at the Nalanda University , composed couplets (dohas) denouncing traditional beliefs prevalent among the masses. Similarly Gorakhnath, a poet reformer, through his mystic writings propagated the idea of a classless society through self-discipline. The writings of Sarhapa, Gorakhnath and Kabir are essentailly sectarian and underline the importance of universal oneness.

From then, up to independence, Hindi poetry has crossed many bridges. Nirala, the propounder of nai kavita,(new poetry),not only lived an unusual life but also experimented with various poetic techniques which have inspired several generations of poets.

This anthology brings together five generations of Hindi poets, whose talents have been acknowledged through several awards and citations. Whatever the shortfalls, whey are the constraints inherent to an anthology of this range and scope.

Dr. Kailash Vajpeyi (b.1936)began his career by designing the magazine Sarika for The Times of India. In 1972 he was appointed director of the Indian Cultural Centre, Georgetown. He has held several academic posts during his career, and is presently associate professor of Hindi, Delhi University. Dr. Vajpayi has been invited the world over to present papers and recite poetry. He has also been New York 1997.He has several collections of poems to his credit which have been included in German, Russian, Danish, and Swedish anthologies. He has also been advisor to the ministry of environment and has eleven films to his credit. Apart from sixteen volumes in Hindi and English, two of his books have also been published from Mexico in Spanish.

Back Of Book
This book is a commendable effort that it compiles a wide range of poetry from over five generations of poets whose talents have been acknowledged through several awards. The scope is awesome and the results praiseworthy.
FIRST CITY

Kailash Vajpeyi's third attempt in the last almost three decades to bring forth the best of Hindi poetry to a worldwide readership transcends narrow self aggrandising considerations.
THE HINDU

The editor has done a good job by bringing out such a superb collection of poems written in Hindi by a galaxy of poets.
SUNDAY TRIBUNE

The task of compiling an anthology of modern Hindi poetry in English is a daunting affair. Kailash Vajpeyi, a reputed poet himself, acknowledges this difficulty. He says that in a book like ours a poem's translatability 'is as crucial a parameter as other factors in determining its selection.'

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
