Our inspiration for this week’s Ahmedabad Art Weekly is Ahmedabad-born Padma Shri Bachubhai Ravat. The Gujarati art critic and editor worked in the editing and publishing department of the Navjeevan Prakashan Mandir in his early years. For decades, he edited for Kumar magazine alongside artist Ravishankar Raval. Ravat also pioneered the Budh Sabha literature gathering in 1932, a literary workshop which takes place at Gujarati Sahitya Parishad every week, to this day. The poet was awarded the Ranjitram Suvarna Chandrak for his works of journalism. He was a believer in metrical poems, once mentioning that poems cannot exist “without metre”. His most notable works are Gujarati Granthasth Chitrakala (essay collection) and Gujarati Lipina Nava Parodhnu Nirman (book on Gujarati script).
