Series Intro: This series introduces some of the best known Hindi poets, born before the independence of India, such as Muktibodh, Mahadevi Verma and Sachchidananda Hirananda Vatsyayan Agyeya. We have invited eminent broadcasters to recite their poetry to ensure perfect diction and pronunciation.
Just to understand, the history of Hindi Literature can be summed up by classifying the major developments into various periods such as Aadi kaal or Vir-Gaatha Kaal (c. 1050 to 1375), Bhakti Kaal (c. 1375 to 1700), Riti-Kavya kaal (c. 1700 to 1900) and Aadhunik Kaal (c. 1900 onwards).
Some of the most popular forms of Hindi poetry are Doha, Sorathha, Chaupaii, Kundalia, Rola, Kavitt, Geet, Mukt Chhand and Ghazal.
