Ramdhari Singh Dinkar (b. 1908-1974) is considered one of the most important modern Hindi writers. A progressive and humanist poet, he chose to approach history and reality directly and his verse combines oratorical vigour with declamatory diction. He also wrote on social and political satires aimed at socio-economic inequalities and exploitation of the underprivileged.
Dinkar’s first published poetical work was Vijay Sandesh in 1928. A spate of books followed including Renuka (1935), Kurukshetra (1946), Mirch Ka Mazaa (1951), Rasmirathi (1952), Dilli (1954), and Urvasi (1961). His works have been anthologised in several volumes. His major prose works include Mitti Ki Or (1964), Ardhnarishwar (1952), Meri Yatreyen (1971) and Adhunik Bodh (1973).
