Event Description

These two contemporaries, Sana’ullah Dar ‘Miraji’ (1912-1949) and Gajanan Madhav ‘Muktibodh’ (1917-1964), moved beyond the Progressives’ political ideology, but did they ever entirely renounce its concerns? Both were controversial in their time; both had difficult lives and major health problems; both died young. Their attempts to grapple with the Progressive movement–and with their own Sufi/bhakti heritage–helped to shape modern literary movements in Urdu and Hindi.
