Mahadevi Varma, the 'modern Meera' of our times.Only a few people leave behind their memories, whereas the majority pass away unknown. One of the famous Hindi poetess who we cherish in our memories is Mahadevi Varma. Popularly known as "Modern Meera", she was a freedom fighter, a woman's rights activist and an educationist.
Although she was married when nine, she remained at her parental home to complete her education. While at college hostel, she started writing poems secretly, but when her room-mate discovered it, her hidden talent was exposed. Mahadevi Varma is one of the four major Hindi poets of the Chhayavaadi School of Hindi Literature. The other three are Suryakanth Tripathi "Nirala", Jaishankar Prasad and Sumitranandan Pant.
Today when Google has remembered her by doodling her, let this famous Indian be remembered by us too at the India Study Channel.
