Tukaram (Makers of Indian Literature)
Tukaram (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
About the Book:

The Bhakti Movement is perhaps the most glorious creative surge of the Indian mind in this millennium. Tukaram (1608-1650) epitomizes the liberal Hindu tradition of Bhakti in Maharashtra. He is something of a legend. Born as a Shudro, persecuted by the orthodoxo on account of the growing popularity of his rebellious social thinking, Tukaram, after his mysterious end, became the most revered figure of his times. For over three centuries now he has exerted a profound influence over the cultural life of the Marathi people. In almost every generation his lyrics have been most widely sung, read and quoted as proverbs. The secret of his tremendous appeal lies in the intensely personal religion reflected in his lyrics. His morality is more relevant in our time than ever. No serious student of world literature can avoid Tukaram.

With the penetrating study of Tukaram's social background and his life experience revealed in his work, profusely quoted in translation for the non-Marathi audence, this monograph by Bhalchandra Nemode well known Marathi writer, would be invaluable for students of literature and literary culture.
