PM CONDOLES DEATH OF DR. SHIV MANGAL SINGH 'SUMAN'


The Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee has expressed grief over the sad demise of noted Hindi poet and academician, Dr. Shiv Mangal Singh ‘Suman’.

Condoling the loss the Prime Minister said, "Singer of song of life has gone silent. Dr Shiv Mangal Singh ‘Suman’ was not only a powerful signature in the field of Hindi poetry, but he was also the custodian of the collective consciousness of his time. His creations not only expressed the pain of his own feelings, but were also fearless constructive commentary on the issues of the era. Perhaps that is why his poem ‘Kya haar mein, Kya jeet mein, Kinchit nahin bhayabheet main’ (In defeat, in victory, I stand fearless) proved a vehicle to express the country’s feelings on the Independence day of 1998 in my first address from the Red Fort. His priceless literary heritage is reflected not only his writings but also in his significant contribution as a teacher and also as administrator of Hindi Sansthan. His vibrant voice will continue to guide the coming generations of poets".
