AAW is a face for all the creators of the city, who wish to bring a rock-hard change in the way people are consuming content today. With cultural, creative, musical and literary astounding events, the city is developing itself into a cultural hub, where people are consciously aware of how they can consume more and more creatively enriching content. Let us all pledge to scroll for the best and not for what’s being fed to us.
This week’s creative inspiration for the 121st edition of Creative Yatra’s Ahmedabad Art Weekly is none other than Gujarat’s experimental poet Manhar Modi, who was an extreme exponent of Gujarati language and taught the vernacular script in various colleges and universities. Born in Ahmedabad in 1937, Modi served as a salesman and a senior clerk in Western Railway, before actively participating in literacy activities and later becoming the modern reformist of it. He was awarded several accolades including the Kalapi Award and Dhanji Kanji Gandhi Suvarna Chandrak for his creations like Akruti, Om Tat Sat, Dariya, Ek Vadharani Kshan and Shrimukh Tadako. He served as an editor at the Nirikshak Magazine, Udgar magazine and Olakh magazine and was the president of Asait Sahitya Sabha and Gujarati Sahitya Parishad.
