Rajwanti Maan

A strong pillar of Chandigarh’s literary activities and Prof. Mehendiratta ji’s disciple/associate Dr. Kailash Ahluwalia is no longer with us. On Saturday, 20 January 2024, he said goodbye to us after a few days of illness. Ahluwalia was an undisputed luminary on the literary scene, a brilliant human being who deeply influenced every generation of senior writers, contemporaries and budding writers alike.

He was a brilliant poet, storyteller, critic, dramatist, stage actor, director and a wonderful man of many talents. My introduction to Kailash Ji is equivalent to my literary journey. जबर मेरे पर्थाम कव्य साथ का लोकरपन हुा तो Kailash ji read a serious, detailed pamphlet. After that, the talk continued on literary topics.

Dr. who has similar penetration in English and Hindi literature. Kailash MA in English and History, MPhil in English, PhD; Retired from the post of Associate Professor, former Principal and also Convener of IGNOU. He has been a brilliant and active contributor to theater activities. He staged and directed about 60 plays under the banner of Chandigarh’s oldest theater institution. He was the consultant of Setu Patrika, Shimla, co-editor of Contemporary Vibes Chandigarh and consultant of Philphot Forum Natak Sanstha, Solan. I am a fan of his poems. Oh! Poetry collections like Ababeel, Kanch Ghar ki Machili, पानी आा गाया दिल को चु जाटे हैन. A collection of stories like अनकही की आच, खिल्ती धुप में बारिश, शेश–अशेष, Pashcha (memoir) is not only a personal but also a necessary document to acquaint one with the contemporary literary landscape. English Poetry in India, ‘हिन्दी के शब्द शिलपी’ edited by Sushil Kumar Full, ‘Katha Chaubc’ edited by Devendra Gupta etc. are among the long list of publications. Received literary honors such as Life Achievement Award for Recognition in Literature by Chandigarh की Sahitya Akademi, Creative Writers (Shimla) Readers and Writers of India; He was honored by many institutes like Hindi Overseas USA Houston, Texas USA etc. His passing away is an irreparable loss to literature. However, his literary contribution remains to be evaluated. His amazing thing was that he was talking seriously and in detail about the works of every small and big writer. Now it is the responsibility of his contemporaries and the new generation to talk about his creativity. I am Dr. A heartfelt tribute to Kailash Ahluwalia.

Prem Vij for his soul’s peace, Dr. Vinod Sharma, Neeru Mittal, KK Sharda, Dr. Sarita Mehta, Suresh Seth, Vimala Googlani, Lajpatrai Garg prayed.
