Dhanesh Kothari: A Garhwali Poet of New Symbols and Sharp Attitude

Critical and Chronological History of Modern Garhwali (Asian) Poetry – 158

                    Literature Historian:  Bhishma Kukreti

    Dhanesh Kothari is new generation Garhwali language poet who uses new symbols and have sharp attitude towards wrong happenings. Kothari believes in criticizing the wrong happenings with sharp words and does not believe in mild criticism. 
          Dhanesh Kothari was born on 26 December, 1970 in Devprayag, Tihri Garhwal , Himalaya. 
   Dhanesh passed graduation from Rajkiya Mahavidyalaya Rishikesh and started creating poems from early age. Dhad movement sharpens his ability for fineness and motivated Kothari for creating poetry in Garhwali language.
Dhanesh Kothari created more than two hundred poems in Garhwali language and published in various periodicals as Sahara Samay, Khabar Sar, Chitthi Patri, Rant Raibar, Dandi Kanthi, Yugvani . Akashvani has been broadcasting his poems for many years.
Dhanesh Kothari edited Uttarasth, Awaj and Smaranam too.
Dhanesh Kothari published his poetry collections in 2009 from Dhad Prakashan in the name Jyundal.
        From form point of view, Dhanesh uses three styles- non-alliterated , conventional rhyme forms and other mix style. Dhanesh Kothari takes subject of common man and is very sensitive about wrong happenings in Garhwal. His poems show his personal experiences in bearing the suppression by unwanted happenings and new changes in his area. 
All Garhwali language poets of Garhwal have to choose the subjects from Garhwal. Hence, the subject would be same for all of them. In these circumstances, the intellectual poem has to choose the new words and symbols for creating poems. Dhanesh Kothari should be appreciated for his uses of new symbols, new thinking, new attitude in describing old subjects as he describes migration in the following way:

Myar deram 
Ganesh cha chandaro ni 
Naren ch pujdao ni
Urkhyali ch kutdaru ni
Jandari ch pisdaru ni 
Mankhi chhan bachaldaru ni
Bata chhan hitdaru ni
Danda chhan cheddar ni

Dhanesh Kothari uses sharp words in telling wrong happenings in his area. Kothari does not believes mildness for showing the mistakes off administration . At the same time, Kothari awakens the society with strong words to take the matter in their hands

Teri jato chau thatau chhau
Gangajal man vain
Saun ghatyan chha
Ab agar nata todu 
t/mar ek khaidai

His way of creating poetry , definitely shows that Kavita Movement in Garhwali has brought newness and variation in subjects, form, style and attitude . Dhanesh is master of vocabulary and makes words his slave. Since, Dhanesh belongs to Devprayag, he uses dialects of Devprayag area but restrict him from using core regional dialects for better understanding for readers of all regions of Garhwal.
Creative as Veerendra Panwar, Tribhuwan Bhatt Hemwanti Bhatt ‘ Hemu’ appreciated his way of telling the poems and his uses of new symbols for describing conventional subjects.
भरोसा कू अकाळ
जख मा देखि छै आस कि छाया
वी पाणि अब कौज्याळ ह्वेगे
जौं जंगळूं कब्बि गर्जदा छा शेर
ऊंकू रज्जा अब स्याळ ह्वेगे
घड़ि पल भर नि बिसरै सकदा छा जौं हम
ऊं याद अयां कत्ति साल ह्वेगे
सैन्वार माणिं जु डांडी-कांठी लांघि छै हमुन्
वी अब आंख्यों कू उकाळ ह्वेगे
ढोल का तणकुला पकड़ी
नचदा छा जख द्यो-द्यब्ता मण्ड्याण मा
वख अब बयाळ ह्वेगे
जौं तैं मणदु छौ अपणुं, घैंटदु छौ जौं कि कसम
वी अब ब्योंत बिचार मा दलाल ह्वेगे
अफ्वी सोचा समझा
जतगा सकदां
किलै कि
अब,
दुसरा का भरोसा कू
अकाळ ह्वेगे
जै दिन
धनेश कोठारी 
The following poem ‘जै दिनspeaks multifarious ways. The poem is realistic and surprisingly satirical too. At the same time, it brings a pathos in minds of Garhwalis that we are totally helpless in bringing back the glory of rural Garhwal for farming  what Kothari is dreaming
जै दिन

जै दिन
मेरा गोरू
तेरि सग्वाड़यों, तेरि पुंगड़यों
उजाड़ खै जाला
जै दिन
झालू कि काखड़ी
चोरे जालि

जै दिन
धारु धारु कि घस्येनि
हपार धै लगालि
तब सम्झलू कि-
गौं आबाद छन।
