Born in 1894 in Junagadh, Bakshi has received tutelage from literary giants like Anandshankar Dhruv and Narsinhrao Divetia. He later on progressed to be known as a significant litterateur of ‘Pandit Yuga’ or ‘Govardhan Yug’ – a period in Gujarati literature history that is known for the focus on scholarly writing. The period, considered by many as the ‘Golden era’ in Gujarati literature saw brilliance in poetry, essay, play and biographies. Bakshi’s contribution to the era is significant. Be it Vangamya Vimarsha (1963) which is an analytical study of Sanskrit and Western poetics or his deliberation on Indian dramatic theories Natyarasa (1959) and Karunarasa (1963), Bakshi brought about lot of knowledge into the Gujarati literature domain. His translated works Gujarati Bhasha ane Sahitya (Vol i & ii) and Rojanishi (with Dhansukhlal Mehta) are a gift to Gujarati readers, as both of these are original works of Narsinhrao Divetia written in English.
He received the Narmad Suvarna Chandrak for Vangamya Vimarsha and later on went on to serve as the President of Gujarati Sahitya Parishad.
