About Indian Author Ravindra Prabhat
By: Dr.Virendra Kumar Basu
India has produced several writers who have influenced a whole generation and continue to inspire the coming generations by their writings. Their works vividly portray the picture of Indian society and subtly bring out the ills it. Ravindra Prabhat is one of a well known name in the field of Indian literature . He is a prominent Hindi poet and an eminent Indian novelist. whose writings used to be very emotionally charged.
As a social painter Ravindra Prabhat paints a lovely picture of the hypocrisy, bureaucracy and plutocracy through his Literary world for the revival of a different facets of nature and exhales his creative fragrance for the essence of the critic world. His more than two and half decades selfless service to the literary world has reserved a permanent berth in the popular psyche of the creative milieu.
Ravindra Prabhat, best remembered for his debut novel ‘Taki Bacha Rahe Loktantra' is one of the powerful and emerging voices amongst India's post colonial literary stalwarts. His novels are written in a humorous style and are intended to go beyond the basic concept of comedy. He defied conventional traditions and created a niche for himself. His second novel ‘Prem na haat bikay’ is based on love triangle. I have read many love stories novel love triangle also,but this novel has touched my heart. Really a great job by the novelist.
Nature is one of the leading themes of his poetry in which he embraces all six seasons in general and spring in particular because spring comes with blossomed flowers, green pansy, coloured jungles, new leaves and fresh buds that enrapture people’s heart with unfathomed joy. Spring symbolizes novel vision, spiritual thought, and stirring imagination that puts the lookers in the seventh heaven without any dispute. Nature is the source of energy, power and force that stares at the sullen germs of the human beings for the fragrance in the days to come. As a poet of Nature Ravindra Prabhat sings in his poem Unexpected.
"Alliteration the mind - Temple, life is a honeymoon
vernal song on the humble bee's lips,
Alcoholic realized in the mustard flower, as like friend ."
-In Smriti Shesh (Poetry Collection)
Like Tagore Ravindra Prabhat is primarily a spring suitor who inhales all forms of spring for spiritual consciousness and exhales poetic fragrances to the outside world.
T. S. Eliot calls the hollow men of the modern society because they are deprived of morality, spirituality and ideology and possess only the flesh into to. Like T. S. Eliot Ravindra Prabhat exposes the hollowness of modern man who lives in the fool’s paradise for want of conscience. Man has become thirsty of one’s blood. It is quite impossible for a man to have faith in another because faithfulness has become a story of the past for them. On the contrary people extend their helping hands to those who are fraudsters, black marketers, cheaters and butchers on the name of friendship, peace and prosperity. Man is afraid of man, animal is afraid of man, and plant is afraid of man. Ravindra Prabhat unmasks the modern race in all his conscience. In his poem ‘Man can not bull ever’ the poet exposes the hollowness of modern race as a whole:
"The dog may be man
Horse, donkey, too
But the bull -
Man can not
-In Smriti Shesh (Poetry Collection)
His poetic message is to love one another and turn this earth into a dale of eternal bliss. Love all living beings and make a heavenly world on this strife-stricken earth. The poet propounds the philosophy of suffering of life in his poem ‘ See Dumb Man’:
"Crowded - feel free to speak- See Dumb Man. "
-In Mat Rona Ramjani Chacha,(Poetry Collection)
