Jhaverchand Meghani’s Sorath Tara Vahetan Pani (Echoes from the Geers): A novel of region


Dr. Bhagvanbhai H Chaudhari

In literature the perception of Regionalism or local colour usually refers to fiction or poetry that focuses on specific features- incorporating characters, dialects, customs, history and topography of a particular region. Jhaverchand Meghani (1896-1947)(1896-08-28) was a celebrated Gujarati poet, litterateur, social reformer and freedom fighter. To represent entire Sorathi, either ancient or modern life, in literature has been the chief concern of his literary activities. The chief endeavor of the novelists seems to characterize a particular region and its socio-cultural dimensions through which the quest of national identity has been carried out fruitfully. Hence, Meghani has visualized the ideal portrait of cultural identity, self-image and overall personality of ‘Saurashtra’ vicinity in his novel entitled Sorath Taran Vahetan Pani. The chief tone of Meghani’s creativity is not only the Sorath or its folk-life, but also the broad humanity amassed with it.
