Book Description

About The Book

The Tracker, which was originally published in Rajasthani in 1977 under the title Paagi, marked an important turning point in the history of Rajasthani poetry. The poems in this collection reflect the poet's deep anguish at the evils prevailing in society. The poems urge us to usher in new ideals and fresh values. Drawing deeply from the Mahabharata, the poems depict Rajasthan in all its grandeur.

Chandra Prakash Dewal (b. 1949) started his career writing poems in Hindi. He began writing in Rajasthani only in 1974 and has four collections of poems to his credit. He has edited several books in the Rajasthani language and has also translated from Hindi into Rajas thani. He has received several awards and honours including the Sahitya Akademi Award and the Rajasthani Bhasha, Sahitya Evam Sanskriti Akademi's Kaluram Pediwal Prize.

At present Sri Dewal is working as Chemist in the Department of Biochemistry at J.L.N. Medical College, Ajmer.
