Twelve years ago today, a man was born in Gujarat, Chotila. His name is Zaverchand Meghani who contributed immensely to the Indian Freedom Fight. Only a pan was such weapon for his to freed Indian from the British Rule. His pan had such bravery that reading his text will make you sit down. Let’s remember a man, Zaverchand Meghani who did a patriotic job. A job of making young India fight for the motherland with an effective text.
Zaverchand Meghani completed his BA with the major subject Sanskrit at the age of 18. Then, he went to serve a Calcutta-based company Alumni Yama. At the age of 19, Zaverchand Meghani came to Saurashtra. There he made some changes in ‘Janmboomi‘ and ‘Phoolchhab.’ He wrote amazing content and texts in these newspapers. Created about 100 immortal works in 3 years.
Sacrifice, War Songs, Patriotic Stories, Novels, and Social Reform were the main subjects of his literature. ‘Saurashtrani Rasadhar’ was his most immortal work. In five parts, it depicted the brilliance and strength of Saurashtra’s Talpadi Dialect. Every evening a village is filled with Dior. Zaverbhai to the people of that village Listens to the history of the village, stories, and folk songs, and writes in his own pen. The years-old history of the village, the history of Paliya living in the part of the village was also alive at that time. Zaverbhai does his writing work.
Because of his dress and turban, he was known in college as ‘Raja Janak’ and later as ‘Paghadi Babu’. Had the poet Dula Kaag with him in the Ness of Gir. At that time Savage killed a calf. At that time, the owner of the calf, Hirbai, a 12-year-old shepherd, bravely confronted the lion and did not allow him to kill his favorite calf. Zaverchand stared at the courage shown by the 18-year-old girl in front of the roaring lion. It was a wonderful poem depicting the courage and fearlessness of a woman. Meghani says to the fleeing lion, “When you became a man, you ran away from a woman, you ran away from a little girl.”
In 1930, he was imprisoned for two years by the British for his nationalist work ‘Sidhudo’. Dhandhuka In 1931, he got the news that P. Mahatma Gandhiji was going to England for a round table conference. When Gandhiji read his composition ‘Bowl of Poison’, he said, the whole picture of my mind is in this poem without meeting me.
Tears welled up in the eyes of the British jailer. The Indian sepoys when Zaverbhai challenged the ‘bowl of poison’ in Dhandhuka jail. “The last bowl of poison, this P Judge Bapu, Sagar drinker Anjali nine dholjo Bapu.” Pamphlets of poetry written by Zaverbhai were distributed to Manav Medani who came to address Bapu in Mumbai.
Meghani was also a freedom fighter. He wrote stories of Sati, Shura, Sant, Baharvatis of Saurashtra and did social work. Gandhiji gave her the nickname of ‘National Shire’. Once he fell behind the outsiders and chased them out of the village. He was awarded the Ranjitram Gold Medal as well as the Mahida Prize for his contribution to folklore. He was also the head of the literature department in the Gujarati Sahitya Parishad.
Shri Mahendrabhai Meghani was his son. He presented his father’s writing work to the world in the best possible way. She passed away in 1947, before the age of 90. British released him that day. Those whose writings contributed so much to the freedom struggle, God called them to Himself even before they saw freedom.
On September 14, 1999, the Indian Postal Department also issued a stamp in his honor. The word Yugpurush is too small for a single person to serve so many mother tongues and motherland in his 50 years of life.
