RAJENDRA YADAV,THE DOYEN OF HINDI LITERATURE,IS NO MORE!

REST IN PEACE, RAJENDRA YADAV !

The Doyen of Hindi Literature, #
RajendraYadav Passed Away
Yesterday! He Was 84.

He Was Rushed To The Hospital Post Midnight Following Some Breathing Problems!

Rajendra Yadav Happened To Be One of The Most Influential Men of Letters In The Last 30yrs Shaping and Reshaping The Public Discourses In India.

He along with KAMLESHWAR and
MOHAN RAKESH, Pioneered The
Literary Movement Known As ‘NAYI
KAHANI'(New Story) In Shortstory
Writing!

A Prolific Author Whose Novels Like ‘SARA AAKASH’ (
‘AN INFINITE COSMOS’ ) Got Quick
Attention As Well As Struck A Chord
With The Readers!

He Was Also A Critic of Note And
Editor of The Reputed Hindi
Monthly, HANS!
Mr. Yadav Gave Rise To A Novel Approach of Treatment Towards The Subject Matters of Women , Downtrodden or The Marginalia of India !

A Man Who Always Encouraged
New And Emerging Writers, Had
Never Shied Away From Speaking-
Out Against The Evils of India’s
Socio-Political Landscapes!

Though Rajendra Yadav Like Any Other Progressive Authors Had Had A Left Leaning Worldview, Yet He Was Aware of Not Letting His Monthly, HANS To Be Completely Radicalized In Its Various Aspects !

Mr. Yadav Was A Lifelong Crusader Against The Increasingly Rising Tendencies of Fundamentalism Plus Extremism In The Body-Politic Of India!

His Opponents Were Everywhere, Yet No One Could Ever Denied His Profound Observations Of The Indian Society !

The Female Characters Were Given Voice And Were Set Free As Well As Share A Fair Portions of A Writer’s Total Picture of The Society !

The Death of Rajendra Yadav Has Certainly Created A Void Rarely To Be Filled In Any Time Sooner !

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ARTHUR MILLER !

”BETRAYAL IS THE ONLY TRUTH
THAT STICKS !”
ARTHUR MILLER.
American Playwright Arthur
Miller
Was Born This Day 17 October
In
1915 In New York.
A Product of The Great
Depression
Era, Arthur Miller , Through His
Plays, Kept Questioning The
Prevalent Mode of Captalist
Society
And The Demeaning Features of
Modernity !
An Open Critic of The Anti-
Communist Wave of The United
States Government During The
Early Period of Cold War Era,
Miller
Came Up With His Second Most
Popular Play, THE CRUCIBLE
Wherein
He Drew An Analogy of Sorts
Between The Then Ongoing
Anti-
Communist Policy Of The
Government That Saw A
Repressive
Attitude Towards One n All Who
Were Sympathizing With
Communism n Its Votaries With
That Of A Witch Hunt In Salem
In
Earlier Era!
The Play Saw Miller Gaining An
Instant Celebrity Status And Its
Consequential Persecution by
The
Government. . .(Luckily Miller
Escaped The Punishment).
Master of Impressionism Plus
Realism, Miller Wrote His Most
Read , Critically Acclaimed And A
Must In College Syllabi
Worldwide,
DEATH OF A SALESMAN.
The Play Is Technically Held As A
Model For Modern Realistic
Playwriting And A Fine
Flagbearer
of The Tradition of Ibsen-often
held as the father of modern
drama!
A Poten Critic of The Myth of
American Dream, Miller Never
Felt
Shy of Pointing Out The
Hollowness
of This Dream And The
Resultant
Collective Frustration Amongst
The
Generations of 50s n 60s !
Married To The Hollywood Sex
Symbol, Marilyn Monroe, For
6yrs ,
Miller Had Had A Fondness For
Scriptwriting Too.After The End
of
This Turbulent Relationship,
Miller
Penned A Beautiful Play Titled
AFTER THE FALL !
Family Relationship Was a
Recurring Theme In His Plays.
ALL MY SONS and A VIEW FROM
THE
BRIDGE are His Other Enduring
Plays.
Miller Remains A Powerful
Influence Even Today As His
Concerns Are As Relevant Today
As
During His Time.
He Would Have Been 98 Today !
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO
ARTHUR MILLER !
