About Jhaverchand Meghani

Jhaverchand Meghani (1896-1947) immensely popular multifaceted Gujarati writer-poet-journalist who in a short literary career of 25 years wrote more than 90 books of poetry, novels, short stories, and biographies. He is best known for his wide exploration of the previously undocumented folk literature of Saurashtra. His extensive research produced collections of folk songs, folk stories and scholarly treatises on all facets of folk literature. This won him the first ever award of the Ranjitram Swarnachandrak, the highest literary award in Gujarat. Meghani’s patriotic songs gave great impetus to India’s freedom struggle, and Gandhiji bestowed on him the title of Rastriya Shayar.
