PORTRAYAL OF INDIAN LIFE IN KEKI N DARUWALLA’S BOAT-RIDE ALONG THE GANGA

Dr. Ramesh P. Chavan

Abstract


Daruwalla is known for his bitter, satiric tone and as one who writes from his experience of violence, he shows a preoccupation with some of the darker sides of existence particularly with death and destruction. Daruwalla is one who believes, like many other poets writing in recent years, that poetry should derive its inner strength from a social awareness and sense of commitments. While his early poems, show an acuteness of observation and sharpness of expression, the letter poems shows an intensification of social awareness, of a deep consciousness of the environment in which a poem is set.
