The Legacy of Bhikhari Thakur - It’s for all the people around the world – not important which language they speak. It’s absolutely wonderful.
Being a very popular language still Bhojpuri is fighting for its acceptance on government level in its own birth land with different languages & cultures. Honoured with the national language in Maurities and being spoken in over 14 countries, still it is eying towards its lover for regaining its position. Whenever any voice arises in this regard, government clearly reject it stating that the language which hasn’t got its own literature and even lacks own script, has no right to demand its affiliation. It may be considered as bad luck of Bhojpuri language as it has already a poet of International standard in the form of Bhikhari Thakur. But instead of being enriched with the composition of multidimensional Bhikhari Thakur, no other writer dared to follow the foot step of legendary Bhikhari Thakur due to the fear of rejection and humility already borne by Bhikhari Thakur.The historic city of Kolkata has been always very famous for art & culture. Kolkata is also considered as a place where budding quality of Bhikhari Thakur prospered. At that point when he was struggling to end his meet, he was impressed and inspired by movement carried out then by famous Bengali social reformers much as Raja Ram Mohan Roy ,Ram Krishna Param Hans & Swami Vivekananda. After being back to his native land enriched and enlighten with ideas on every social level which can be seen and felt in his compositions. I t is good coincidence that worlds 1st Bhikhari Thakur festival was organized in the pious city of Kolkatta. "This festival was an opportunity for people to experience the joy of Bhikhari Thakur, while engaging with the radically transformative power of his poetry. It offered a powerful encounter with the philosophy of Bhikhari Thakur, hopefully generating moments of critical self-awareness and reflection on ideas of cultural identity and social divisions, death and impermanence, and the nature of knowledge," says festival co-ordinator Naresh Mahato.
