Indian Poetry, Realism, Religion, River, Spirituality
River is represented in different ways by the poets. In Eastern religions, it is seen with high regards; it is worshiped and admired by the poets in their religious verses which can be understood by the hymns written on the rivers like Ganga and Yamuna in Sanskrit. They are sung by the priest of the temples at the time of evening. They are often the songs of praise which show human inclination towards these rivers that they consider as their ‘mother’. In the modern time too, poets writing in English in India have paid attention to this life giving element and have written poems on rivers. In this paper, the poems written on the rivers of North India, South India, and North East India by the poets like A.K. Ramanujan, A.K. Mehrotra, Mamang Dai and Alka Tyagi belonging to these regions are taken into consideration to understand the ways poets perceive rivers in India and the way they represent the picture of Indian rivers and human connection with them. They bring into attention the religious, political, cultural, aesthetic and spiritual aspect connected with the river in Indian society. Their poems show the importance of rivers in any civilization, culture while showing their state in the current time as well.
