Gandhi And Poetry

Rating: 5.0
One day a lean poem
reached Gandhi's ashram
to have a glimpse of the man.
Gandhi spinning away
his thread towards Ram
took no notice of the poem
waiting at his door
ashamed as he was no bhajan.

The poem cleared his throat
and Gandhi looked at him sideways

Oh, it is a nice poem, an extraordinary one where one can see how dreams are transformed into reality, lethargy into karma! Gandhi and Marxism, if it is not, socialism is the point of deliberation. Was Gandhi not a socialist? Was Gandhi anti-communist? No, no is the answer. He was also a socialist, but of a type. Gandhi pinning thread, rounding the charkha. and the poet into the dreams of his are but the ideas giving a base to anti-thesis.

Very poignant poem, profound thoughts and deep analysis of the relationship of Gandhian philosophy with aesthetics... Extraordinarily brilliant. I have been enamoured by reading the original in Malayalam.. The translation, done by the poet himself, is equally good..

The discourse is not between Mr.Poem Personified and Gandhi, but Satchidanandan from Thrissur, Kerala and Gandhi at Sabarmati Ashrama, Namboodaripad and Gandhi.

What is Gandhism? What Gandhi dreamt, preached, did we follow them? Gandhism not in theory, in practice should be our motto. The dignity of labour is all important.

Gandhi and the poet, Gandhsim and poetry, Gandhi at the hand loom wheel spinning yarn and hinting the poet to write the poetry of ground realities arther than presenting him as an icon.
