"Poets define any Culture Well" Says Ravi Korde
Aurangabad, 12 August, 2017: City-based writer bags prestigious Sahitya Academy Yuva award winner Ravi korde, he got this precious award for “Dhoosar Zale Nasate Gav” (Poetry). “Poem is the voice of those people who does not raise their voice against their problems and sorrows”, Ravi Korde said. Poem is collection of different cultures .If we want to know our society, culture and surrounding, poem is the simplest and expressive way to express ones thoughts.
Ravi Korde said,” During school days I wrote poems for interschool competition. I love Marathi books, so I started reading it seriously. In college life I got what actually a poem is and its seriousness. After that I went to Marathawada Sahitya Parishad Aurangabad. There I met so many popular literary. After that I started to read poetry books, and then I realized poem is very serious thing. It is a very broad concept. ”Poem is straight but not narrow “, Ravi korde said.
Literature is an only medium which connects people heart to heart. Poetry makes people sensitive. It works to maintain values of society. Poetry has that much strength to kill enemies of humanity. “Now a days’ we don’t respect one’s emotions and feelings but poem gives life to a stone, wall, even hardest rock”, Ravi Korde said.
Ravi Korde said “there were so many poets and literary who has impact on me. Arun Kholhatkar (poet) because of his poems I got what is actually poem and its strength. Manohar Oak (poet) he is not so popular but his poetry are very important. Also Anuradha Patil writes the best. Shridhar Nandedkar he is from Aurangabad, when I read his poems then I got how to make poems more meaningful and enhance its beauty. These all are my inspiration from initiative and still they are”.
Poems never die. And whenever we read poem, every time it gives new angle, new vision, new start to see the world again. When we write poem, we use new words and that’s why after every poem we make it more rich by words and powerful by meaning.
Ravi Korde said, “in Hindi poets I like Chandrakaant Devtale, also Rajesh Joshi. I like Vishnu Khare who writes on modern era and overall he writes on our modern lifestyle. Vinodkumar Shukala, Malyalam poet Kessachidanndan, Nilesh Raghuvanshi is from Bhopal, Pranjal dhar,Kumar anupam , Bijoy Barman is from Assam. All these and specially Paash a Panjabi poet I loved his ‘Bich ka raasta nahi hota’ poem. It is very sad to say that he was killed by assuming him as a terrorist. His, ”Sabse Khatarnaak” poem is so popular.
When asked to Ravi Korde, that whether all are poets or Author are pressurized, he answered, “may it be a poet or an author after all he or she is a common person, so obviously they are pressurized by society. Now a days’ if a poet writes against any wrong, bad thing or raise voice, suddenly any party or some bully pressurized by their threat. Now days’ we go through very difficult and different mentality of society. And it’s very harmful to not only people but also for poetry culture. There was a time when people respected each other’s thoughts and opinion of poets or authors but now it’s hard to express. But though there are poets and authors who face this problem and doing their duty.
