Kavi Jaato Tenvha…. (After a Poet’s Demise….)

Poetry is not my achievement Sir,
It’s a compulsive gift of my mother and my Master, Sir.

These were the lines of the poet Grace on whom Dr. Sameer Kulkarni had written an article in Anubhav magazine titled ‘Kavi Jaato Tenvha’. In his lifetime, Grace, whose real name was Manik Godghate, was pigeonholed as an absurd poet and his writing was labelled as unfathomable. This creation is an attempt to understand this “enigmatic” poet.

The play revolves around poetry as a form of literature and in this production, the audience will get to hear musical renditions and readings of Grace’s verses. How does one appreciate and understand poetry? What loss does the language suffer after the demise of a significant poet like Grace? Do we really respect poets in our society? These and many more questions are discussed in Kavi Jaato Tenvha that promises to be an entertaining and enriching experience.
