Memorable pic of Chandrakant Baxi: Presented by ilaxi

Pic courtesy : Scanned from copy of Bhaskar city, 23rd Jan 2006.

What interested me most is that apart from writing 185 Books, Chandrakant Baxi wrote 18 poems. He thought it to be a great art form. Quite surprising but harsh truth that on his death, even the Guj CM Narendrabhai Modi spoke great words for him but unfortunately, Gujarat had no consideration for him. He became the Sheriff of Bombay and his fans gave him ample love. He felt hurt that Gujarat did not give him anything....Interestingly, his articles 'Vintage Wine, Starter, Cocktail and Bottoms Up' had interesting captions but not on hard drinks or wine...whatsoever.




His memories, we all would cherish for all times to come. Gujarati Literature need to be kept alive and it's real need of hour that Gujarat Leaders takes some action otherwise, its so sad, we are losing our all old literature people and Gujarati Sahitya world would fade...

Check on our website Sambhaav to read what CM Narendrabhai, Editor Bhupatbhai and others say for Shraddhanjali to Chandrakant Baxi. Read here Dada's words on Shabdpreet too.

બક્ષીજીનો આ (પુસ્તક વાળો )ફોટો ઘણી અલગ અલગ જગ્યાએ જોયો હતો અને મેં સેવ ઇમેજ કરેલી પરંતુ નોંધ રાખી ન હતી કે ક્યાંથી લીધો હતો. બક્ષીજી રેફરન્સમાં પાક્કા હતા અને એમના રીલેટેડ પોસ્ટમાં જ રેફરન્સ ન હોય એ જરા ખુંચતું હતું પરંતુ આપના બ્લોગ પરથી અસલી સ્ત્રોતની ખબર પડી એટલે મારા બ્લોગ પરની (http://rajniagravat.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/baxibabu/)બક્ષી સાહેબની તૃતિય પૂણ્યતિથીની પોસ્ટમાં હમણા જ સુધારો કરી નાંખું છું.

જો કે હજુ જોડણી બાબતની મારી નબળાઈ અને અજ્ઞાનને સુધારવાની તાતી જરૂર છે અને એ પ્રત્યે પણ મારા પ્રયત્નો ચાલુ જ છે.


આપે આ પોસ્ટમાં ન.મો. અને ભૂપત દાદાએ આપેલ શ્રધ્ધાંજલી અંગે વાત કરી છે પરંતુ મને મળી નહી તો પુરી લિન્ક આપશો?
