Mahadevi Varma, renowned Indian poet, honoured with Google doodle

Mahadevi Varma, renowned Indian poet, honoured with Google doodle”

The doodle is made by guest artist Sonali Zohra, which shows the transformative poet busy penning her thoughts into attractive verses.

Born on 26 March, 1907, Varma spent her childhood near Allahabad city where her father taught in a professor. Her mother motivated her to write in Sanskrit and Hindi, according to the sources. Though she had written it in secret, the poem got discovered - by none other than Subhadra Kumari Chauhan, who went on to become a well-known poet herself. As the Hindi language gained acceptance and prominence in literary circles, Mahadevi Varma as well as Chauhan grew together as writers. Her writings were also characterized as a sense of personal experience and self-expression in the writing style of the literature.

In her biography "Mere Bachpan Ke Din" (My Childhood Days), Mahadevi Varma wrote that at a time when a girl child was considered a burden upon the family, she was very fortunate to be born into a liberal family.

The two developed a unique and beautifully pure bond over this shared love for writing, they would enroll in competitions and seminars, and even got some of their work published in journals and magazines. Together with Suryakant Tripathi "Nirala", Jaishankar Prasad and Sumitranandan Pant, Varma was one of the founding poets of the Chhayavad school of Hindi literature.

In 1930, Mahadevi assumed the role of a teacher and began teaching at village schools around Allahabad.

Varma wrote around 30 books of poems and prose, and in many she detailed the female experience and her support for women's rights. Her career in poetry not only continued, it thrived as she organised several fora for poets and writers to convene.

Under her direction the Mahila Vidyapith system not only made higher education more accessible to the women of India but offered a course of study which did not upset the accepted social and cultural patterns. Varma had received the Jnanpith award for her contribution to literature on April 27, 1982. Her short story collection called "Sketches from My Past" essays the women she had the chance of meeting in life. Mahadevi Varma championed the women's rights and also examined the issues of tradition with great affection.
