Rajendra Yadav - A Beacon of Hindi Literature

Rajendra Yadav – A Beacon of Hindi Literature

He is credited with leading Hindi literary movement known as Nayi Kahani and reviving literary magazine HANS, founded by Munshi Premchand.

The publishing of this Hindi literary magazine was ceased in 1953; it was Yadavji who relaunched it on 31 July 1986.

Rajendra Yadav completed his MA in Hindi at Agra University in 1951 and in the same year he published his first novel, Pret Bolte Hain (which later retitled as Sara Aakash). This novel marked the directorial debut of renowned film maker Basu Chatterjee when he adapted it into a movie in 1969, starring Rakesh Pandey, Madhu Chakravarty, Nandita Thakur, A. K. Hangal and Dina Pathak in lead roles. Along with Mani Kaul’s Uski Roti and Mrinal Sen’s Bhuvan Shome, it is regarded as one of the films which started the Indian New Wave.

His next novel was Ukhde Huye Log, the first novel to envisage the concept of “living in” in Indian society.

Rajendra Yadav’s other novels are Andekhe Anjaan Pul, Ek Inch Muskaan (with his wife Mannu Bhandari), Mantra-Vidh, Ek Tha Shailendra, Kulta and Shaah aur Maat are his other published novels.

Apart from novels, he wrote several stories including Devtaon Ki Murtian, Khel Khilaune, Jahaan Lakshmi Qaid Hai, Meri Priya Kahaniyaan, Hasil Aur Anya Kahaniyan, Chote Chote Tajmahal, Pratinidhi Kahaniyan, Meri Pacchis Kahaniyan among others. He has also translated the works of famous writers such as Turgenev, Chekhov, and Lermontov into Hindi.
