Old Marathi Kavita – Unparallel Creations of Stalwart Marathi Poets

A poet expresses his/her ideas as well as emotions through a creation. Therefore, each poem reflects a poet’s true emotions without polishing it with redundant words. When you read a junya Marathi kavita, ( जुन्या मराठी कविता ) you learn what influenced the people of those days the most. For example, the old Marathi poems written by Namdev and Dnyaneshwar in 13th century were religious poems. This trend continued till 16th to 18th century when Tukaram, Mukteshwar, Ramdas, Vaman Pandit, Raghunath Pandit and Shridhar Pandit and Moropant were prominent poets.

A Change in Trend: From Religious to Real-Life Tales

A remarkable shift is noted in the old Marathi poems, as the poets used their creations to express their feelings regarding the socioeconomic, political and social events taking place in their lives or around them.

Swatantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar expressed his feelings when jailed in Cellular Jail of Andaman Nicobar Island through his poem ‘Sagara Pran Talmalala’. This poem encapsulates his feelings – how he pined for returning to his hometown and how much he missed his family.

Reedh is another soul-touching old Marathi poem which was written by Kusumagraj. It resonates with the lamenting of a person who has lost his house and everything during the flood. However, he is confident that he has the strength to build everything on his own The poet uses a wishful tone instead of a lamenting tone to express the feelings of this man who has lost everything but his wife.
