Ram Ganesh Gadkari
Ram Ganesh Gadkari, a legend in Marathi literature, equally excelled as a dramatist and a poet.His poems and plays are still enjoyed by the lovers of Marathi literature and theatre.
Ram Ganesh Gadkari was born in 1885 at Gandevi near Navsari in Gujarat.His family moved to Pune when he was very young.He had great respect for Gujarati language and was an ardent lover of Gujarati poetry and prose.After completing his education, he worked as a school teacher for sometime, thus earning a nickname ,master'.A voracious reader of Sanskrit, Marathi and English literature, Gadkari was also passionate about theatre. He wrote his first play Mitraprit (Friendship) in 1902.As he was keen to pursue his interest in theatre, Ram joined Kirloskar Natak Mandali in 1906.
Gadkari had noted Gandharva's taste for costly sarees and makeup.
Gadkari used some songs written by writer Vithal Sitaram in the play for some shows.
Gadkari left Kirloskar Natak Mandali to join a new company called Balwant Natak Mandali, set up by some eminent members of the Kirloskar Mandali like Master Dinanath, Chintamanrao Kolhatkar and Krishnarao Kolhapure. If his plays were renowned, then Gadkari's poems were equally popular.He wrote poetry under the pen name ,Govindagraj'.He used pen name ,Balakram' for humorous writings.Gadkari's poems are perhaps better known than his famous plays.The poems exerted major influence on the readers.His poetry collection Vagvaijayanti is still considered as one of the classics in Marathi literature.It is said that a poet can be a dramatist but not a humorist and that a humorist can be a dramatist but not a poet.Ram Ganesh Gadkari was proficient in all these three fields of literature.His ornamental language filled with noble thoughts and in-depth philosophy of life were the beautiful features of his writing.He painted the glory and strength of womanhood beautifully in his dramas, Ekach Pyala and Punyaprabhav.
The popularity, the respect and the love that Ram Ganesh Gadkari received from people during his life time and even now is incomparable.Rajsanyas, his last play was left incomplete because of his death.
