Pandit Makhanlal Chaturvedi (April 4, 1889 – January 30, 1968), also called Panditji, was an Indian poet, writer, essayist, playwright and a journalist who is particularly remembered for his participation in India's national struggle for independence and his contribution to Chhayavaad, the Neo-romanticism movement of Hindi literature. He was awarded the first Sahitya Akademi Award in Hindi for his work Him Taringini in 1955.[1]

Early life[edit]

Chaturvedi was born in bavai village in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh on 4 April 1889. He became a schoolteacher when he was aged 16.[2][3] Later, he was the editor of the nationalist journals Prabha, Pratap and Karmaveer, and was repeatedly incarcerated during the British Raj.[4] After the Indian independence, he refrained from seeking a position in the government, instead continuing to speak and write against social evils and in support of an exploitation-free, equitable society as envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi.[citation needed]

Works[edit]

His noted works are "Venu Lo Gunje dhara",Him Kirtini, Him Tarangini (Hindi: हिम तरंगिणी), Yug Charan (Hindi: युग चरण), and Sahitya Devata (Hindi: साहित्य देवता), and his most noted poems are Dip Se Dip Jale (Hindi: दीप से दीप जले), Kaisa Chhand Banaa Deti hai (Hindi: कैसा छन्द बना देती है) and Pushp ki Abhilaashaa (Hindi: पुष्प की अभिलाषा).[5]

Legacy[edit]

In his memory, the Madhya Pradesh Sahitya Akademi (Madhya Pradesh Cultural Council) organizes the annual 'Makhanlal Chaturvedi Samaroh', since 1987, besides awarding the annual 'Makhanlal Chaturvedi Puraskar' in poetry for excellence in poetry by an Indian poet [6]

The Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Vishwavidyalaya at Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh has been named in his honor [4][7]
