The inspiration for our 167th Ahmedabad Art Weekly is the man who first began researching Gujarati proverbs and idioms, writer Asharam Dalichand Shah. Born in 1842, Shah’s iconic work Gujarati Kahevat Sangraha was an anthology of Gujarati proverbs, published in 1911. The book contained not only beautifully drafted proverbs, but also their meanings, their applications in sentences/incidents/circumstances, and their origins. His studies also compared Marathi and Hindi proverbs. In 1934, his son Mulchand published the biography Asharam Dalichand Shah ane Temno Samay to bring forth his otherwise hidden life story.
