Gujarati writer and philosophy historian Narmadashankar Mehta is the inspiration for our 227th Ahmedabad Art Weekly. He shared a lineage with Gujarati poet BalashankarKantharia and got trained under the tutelage of Gujarati scholar and writer AnandshankarDhruv. Born in 1871 in Ahmedabad, Mehta was proficient at languages and had in-depth knowledge in Gujarati, English and Sanskrit. He contributed scholarly articles that were clear in thoughts, scientific and objective in nature on religion, literature and philosophy in multiple magazines. Some of his most famous works are the four volumes of Dharmatatva-Vichar, two parts of Hind Tattvajnan No Itihas, Upanishadavicharana, Shakta Sampradaya, SuprajanShastr and SandhyakarmaVivaran that were both narrative and historically profound.
