Joyride of folk-wisdom with Bhikhudan Gadhvi at literary session of Amdavad book fair(Video)
Ahmedabad, 13 May 2012
Bhikhudan Gadhvi is a man devoted to folk literature of Gujarat. He can speak on folk literature for hours, and perhaps for days.
In concluding literary session of Amdavad book fair, Shri Bhikhudanbhai spoke on ‘folk literature and me’.
Those, not familiar with the dialect of rural Saurashtra will have to listen to this speech carefully.
In his address Bhikhudanbhai said the folk literature is literature that has come from the people. “Meghanibhai used to say that folk literature is a literature that comes from the people, it is like I collect Rs 10,000 from you, and then donate the sum to you only.”
It was heartening to see that all seats were occupied and many people were on their foot in the tent-hall of Amdavad book fair to listen to this senior folklore artist.
His entire address (36 minutes) is presented above.
