Ahmedabad Art Weekly 162 is dedicating its creative inspiration to London born Gujarati language scholar Alexander Kinloch Forbes, who learnt Gujarati from poet Dalpatram Travadi. The British judge of Ahmedabad and Surat befriended Dalpatram and it was he who inspired him to write Laxmi Natak in 1849, which was the first Gujarati drama inspired from Greek play Plutus. He established the first literary society in Ahmedabad called the Gujarat Vernacular Society, which initiated the first public library, first girls school, first periodical, first newspaper and first literary magazine of Gujarat state. He arranged multiple gatherings in Idar for Gujarati poets and Dalptram’s Farbesvilas was a story of these gatherings. He established Andrews Library in Surat, Gujarati Sabha in Bombay (Now Mumbai), and authored Râs Mâlâ: Hindoo Annals of the Province of Goozerat, in Western India a two-volume history document of folk literature in Gujarat from 8th century till the British arrived. As a translator, Forbes paraphrased Dalpatram’s Bhoot Nibandh in English as ‘Demonology and Popular Superstitions of Gujarat’
