Ramdhari Singh 'Dinkar': Whose Pen Literally Burnt the Page

If you are feeling down for some reasons and you have a no idea how to fight it out. You want to prove something to the world and at the same time you are afraid of backlash, if failed.You want to stand up for the justice, but you are overpowered by the negativity around you. You are afraid of mighty. You are afraid of corrupt authorities.  You are afraid of unsocial elements, bad systems,... and only God knows, what not! Can you look around and see, isn't there someone who can morally boost you,  ignite your mind and fill the much needed fire inside you to fight all these? Fortunately, there is! 

The national poet Ramdhari Singh 'Dinkar' is the name that strikes to my mind - the hardest. His coherent revolutionary writings are filled with real fires. The fire, that can burn your real enemies (fear) right-away.  
Rashtrakavi Ramdhari Singh 'Dinkar'

Born in a poor Bhumihar Brahmin familiy in a small village Simariya, then only known for being situated on the bank of the holy river Ganga, in district Begusarai of Bihar; his journey from there to becoming the proverbial 'Sun' of Hindi literary world and recognition as a national poet including innumerable awards and honors is an extraordinary feat, which is possible only by the rare of rarest genius.

During India's freedom struggle, and being a freedom fighter himself, his heroic poetry captivated the imagination of entire nation, which inspired the other freedom fighters and gave them the much needed strength and voice to fight till the end. Having such an impact of his powerful patriotic poetry and for evoking the nationalistic spirit he was hailed as a Rashtrakavi ('national poet').

The iconic leader Jaiprakash Narain during the Emergency thundered the packed Ramlila Ground  with 100,000 people, by reciting Dinkar's patriotic and provocative immortal lines, which he  originally wrote against the Britsih rule in India.

Do raah samay ke rath ka ghar ghar naad suno,
Singhasan Khaali Karo Ke Janata Aaati Hai!

 दो राह समय के रथ का घर घर नाद सुनो,
सिंघासन खाली करो की जनता आती है !

(Give a way,  listen the growing loud rebellious echo everywhere which are coming towards you. Vacate the throne, the people are coming!)

His persuasive poetry Shakti aur Kshama (Strength and Mercy)  has an unforgettable  impact on mind; it fills its reader's heart and mind with immense energy, and at the same time gives the world a great lesson where he says - your virtue of simplicity, kindness and, forgiveness won't count much to your enemy; until you have the potential to defeat them. Here is the excerpt:- 

Kshama shobhti us bhujang ko

Jiske paas garal hao,
Uska kya jo dantheen,
Vishheen, vineet saral hao!

क्षमा शोभती उस भुजंग को

जिसके पास गरल हो, 
उसका क्या जो दंतहीन,
विषहीन,  विनीत सरल हो!

Where in his Rashmirathi he raises his fierce voice against the sheer injustice met to the Pandavas, and declares war when Duryodhana tries to imprison the messenger Lord Krishna. And then, Krishna challenges him by saying: 

Zanjeer badha ab saadh mujhe,
Haan-haan Duryodhan! bandh mujhe! 

ज़ंजीर बढ़ा अब साध मुझे,
हाँ-हाँ दुर्यौधन! बाँध मुझे!

(Come forward Duryodhana! Capture and tie me in chain- if you can!)

Jab naash manuj pe chata hain,
Pahle vivek mar jata hai!

जब नाश मनुज पे छाता है,
पहले विवेक मर जाता है!

(When the destruction is inevitable, the conscience of man dies first!)

Yachna nahi ab rann hoga, 
Jeevan jai ya ki maran hoga!

 याचना नहीं अब रण होगा,
जीवन जय या की मरण होगा!

(Now, I will not crave for anything - but only war! Life will now be either for victorious glory or death!)

Duryodhan! Rann aisa hoga,
Phir kabhi nahi waisa hoga!

दुर्योधन रण ऐसा होगा,
फिर कभी नहीं वैसा होगा!

(Duryodhan! This war will be such a devastating and terrible, it will never be repeated again!)

You can feel the energy it exudes from every single word he penned. Most of his works are in veer rasa (brave mode). And, they are all treat to read. 

The tile 'Dinkar' (sun) with his name was aptly added later. He was truly a proverbial 'Sun' in Hindi literary world. His uncanny skill of declarative diction is unparalleled. He literally burnt the page with his pen.

He studied various languages like Hindi, Sanskrit, Maithili, Bengali, Urdu and English. Besides having a number of poetic and prose works, he also wrote few biographies  and even translated other great works from other languages to Hindi, including Ravindra Nath Tagor's work in Bengala. 

So many other great writers like Acharya Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Rambriksh Benipuri, Manmath Nath Gupt, Namvar Singh, Rajendra Yadav, ... and so many other greats have written about him and his contribution.

Dinkar's own literary works like 'Urvashi', 'Rashmirathi', 'Kurekshetra' and many others have been translated into English and various other languages by various other writers.

He got number of awards and recognitions for his illustrious works including Sahitya Akademi, Padma Bhushan and Bharatiya Jnanpith besides being a nominated member of parliament in Rajya Sabha for three times. On his birth centenary in 2008,  as a mark of respect, his portrait was unveiled in the Central Hall of Parliament of India by the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh.

He was born on September 23, 1908 in village Simariya of Begusarai District in  Bihar and passed away on April 24, 1974 at the age of 65.

A loss that this nation couldn't fill!!

Indians are Sensitive to Heart ...

Going by a report, by the year 2015 (i.e. just 4 year from now), over 66% of population in this world with heart disease is going to be in India only. This is really a shocking statistics linked to India. As we all know it's nearly a deadly disease, if it's not identified at its early stage. What was even more alarming to me in this report  was the majority age group it's referring - the young people aged between 30 to 40 years. I think, this a huge health risk the country is facing now.

However, it was not revealed why particularly the Indians are too sensitive to this disease in that report. But, it's clearly stated that by having a healthy life style this deadly trend can be reversed for sure. 

Surprises to many, a few simple and yet very effective habits can assure a healthy heart. Here they are : -

Motihari( Bihar) : A Birthplace of Legendary English Writer George Orwell

George Orwell (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950)
 "Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself."

This immortal quote is from Orwell's, a renowned English author, cult classic "Animal Farm". He's considered perhaps the twentieth century's best chronicler of English culture.

Shree Bindeshwari Babu: An Extraordinary Devotional Singer

He enthralled millions with his divine singing voice. He captivated the audience with his excellent heavenly musical poetry based on the great Indian mythology. With his unearthly pleasant melodious compositions, people could vividly sense those mythological characters and immersed into the gracious sequence of events in those stories. The spellbound audience used to burst in tears feeling the pain of some incidents, or extremely delighted over others. The intensity of his live performance was simply unimaginative.  His charismatic presence was enough to stun the audience. No wonder, for many of them he was a living God! Yes. He was none other than the true son of goddess Saraswati and the blessing of goddess Ganga,  Shree Bindeshwari Prasad Singh. People respectfully refer him Bindeshwari Babu or Bino Babu.

I was a crazy follower of epic tv series Ramayan

In the history of television in India, there was  only one time  when most of the people started praying to the tv screen just like a God. It seems unbelievable now, but it is as true as  you  and I. For half an hour, in the late 1980s, on every Sunday morning, across the country, roads were used to be empty just like a curfew has been imposed. Yes! It' was just the incredible  and unprecedented success of the great tv epic Ramayan.

The showcase of  all 38 district's official websites of Bihar in alphabetical order.


Araria website is simply begging for the content. Sadly, nothing is in focus except 'Bihar Online' advertisement. It's just a careless approach and nothing else. A real bad start for this showcase! Anyway, let's move.

Design Pattern basic diagrams

It'd be much helpful to learn the basic diagram notations before we jump to the actual design patterns. There are three types of notations to represent the ideas of patterns:

  1. Class Diagram: To represent static relationships with the other classes.
  2. Object Diagram: To represent object structure at run-time.
  3. Interaction Diagram: To show flow of requests between objects.
