PM CONDOLES DEATH OF DR. SHIV MANGAL SINGH
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
