Chinmay Sayar: The poet of philosophy and tenderness

Critical and Chronological History of Modern Garhwali (Asian) Poetry –-94
                    Literature Historian:  Bhishma Kukreti
       Surendra Singh Chauhan alias cinmay sayar was born in a remote village Andarsaun, Dabari, Bichhala Badalpur, Pauri Garhwal on 17 January 1948.
His father name was late Shri Khushhal Singh Chauhan.
 Sayar expired on 10th March 2016 

He was M.A  in history and diploma in education.

His younger life has been very struggle some. He worked as worker in factories of Mumbai (he used to live in menhaden, Jogeshwari east), Faridabad, Delhi and Bokaro for many years. He was not made for urban and non-emotional life. By nature he was simple, rough, straightforward, rural bias; wish to live near nature and rebellion too. This author is witness about his straightforwardness. Once this author had sever conflict with famous and so called the only one Garhwali language critic Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal. This author wrote that Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal does not know Garhwali at all, he is copycat of Hindi ‘samlochana’ concept and Nautiyal should leave writing in Garhwali. This author provided proof of each word used by B P Nautiyal in eight nine of articles. The author wrote letters about his thinking that Bhagwati Prasad is diluting Garhwali by using Hindi words though for those words Garhwali words were available. The author sent letter to Sayar too. Sayar answered in straight language that “You Brahmins will make fool of Rajput and I am not interested in conflict of you both (Brahmins)”. This is the proof of his simplicity and straightforwardness.

He is not afraid of conflict with his fellow. The author had good relation with Chinmay Sayar through letter communication. Once, this author wrote him in satirical mood about using ‘titli’ (butterfly) instead of ‘pota’l (butterfly). He criticized the author left and right about author’s ignorance for meaning of ‘potal’ and’ titli’. For Surendra Chauhan alias Chinmay truth was more important than friendship or permanent relationship. Sayar does not believe in mincing the words.

He has very significant place in Garhwali poetry of eighties till date. Sayar might have written more than thousand poems in Garhwali language but financial situation of Garhwali creative does not permit to publish the literature in book forms.

We find two Garhwali language poetry collections of Chinmay Sayar . Paseen ki Khusboo and ‘Timala Phool’. Most of his poems are having complete philosophical touch. His poems are combination of ‘udaseenata’ moksha, nirvan and inner energy. This inner energy with indifference, neutrality, dejection is a specialty of Sayar’s poetry. Chinmay is only one Garhwali language poet who could create such type of poetry and Bhagawati Prasad Nautiyal rightly says that Chinmaya is one and only one to create such poems and he got specific recognition among all Garhwali language poets of past and present.

‘Timala Phool’ has 62 poems and all are representative of Chinmay Sayar 

He uses symbols and images of Garhwal for spreading his wing and uses many proverbs in his poems too. Sayar also created  many his own words for  completing the  verse as “ darudya, ajkyun, sonaali, haladyan, Nidaleen, rastagir ( Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal, Chitthi Patri, July, 1999) 

On the whole, the poems of Chinmay Sayar are full of philosophy, dejection with inner energy, inspirational, many poems create hopelessness too, shows light to the society and individuals .
 Chinmay Sayar wrote Garhwali shorter stories and published in Shailvani weekly, Kotdwara. 
मन अघोरी   (दार्शनिक गढ़वाली कविता )

मन अघोरी /घोर ध्यानम 
ध्यानम बैठ्युं ब्रम्ह। 
ईं कूड़ी की /द्वर ढकि लगीं जै 
प्यटि प्याट यन स्वचणू भै 
यखी म्यारु भि /मरघट ह्वे जा 
मोरी जा म्यारु अहम्। 
अहा !
नाम धाम की  बिज्वाड़ औंगिरगे 
अर तृष्णा -हिरुलि /तेरी जलुडी घाम लगिंगे 
य दुनिया ह्वेगे ऐसी  तैसी 
वेकु वासुदेवः सर्वम्।
