Born in the year 1904 in Nihalpur village of Allahabad, the poems of Subhadrakumari Chauhan are full of national consciousness and ooze. Since childhood, the feeling of patriotism was so deeply ingrained in your mind that in the year 1921, leaving your studies, you actively participated in the non-cooperation movement. You went to jail many times in this fight for freedom.
After marriage you settled in Jabalpur. Equality of words and deeds is a major part of Subhadra’s personality. Hearing your creations, even a dying person can be filled with energy. This poetess, who wrote true poetry without any complications, got separated from us in a road accident in 1948. ‘Mukul’ and ‘Tridhara’ are your collections of poetry.

In renunciation and simplicity, Subhadra ji used to wear white khadi dhoti without border. Despite being very fond of jewelry and clothes, she did not use bangles and bindi. Seeing them in plain clothes, Bapu asked Subhadra ji, ‘Ben! Are you married?’ Subhadra said, ‘Yes!’ And then excitedly told that my husband has also come with me.
Upon hearing this, Baa and Bapu were convinced, there were also some angry. Bapu scolded Subhadra, ‘Why don’t you have vermilion on your forehead and why didn’t you wear bangles? Go, come tomorrow wearing a fringed sari. The magic of Subhadra ji’s innately affectionate mind and sincere nature used to work on everyone. His life was full of love and it was not empty even by sharing pure love continuously. Jabalpur’s ‘Jhanda Satyagraha’ of 1922 was the first Satyagraha in the country and Subhadra ji was the first woman Satyagrahi.
There were daily meetings and in which Subhadra also spoke. The correspondent of ‘Times of India’ in one of his reports referred to her as local Sarojini. Very easy way in Subhadra ji

These lines were recited many times remembering Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi.

call from the Himalayas
Uday thunders again and again
Prachi West Bhu Nabha immense;
Everyone is asking Dig-Digant
how is the spring of the heroes

granular pollen stains
Ha! This lovely garden is stained with blood.
Come on dear Rituraj? but come slow
This is the place of mourning. Don’t make noise here.
Gentle boy died here after taking a bullet
Bring a little bit of buds for them to drop.

I want to have a samadhi, around which a fair is held, children keep playing, women keep singing and There was commotion.”
Poems of Subhadra Kumari Chauhan
This kadamba tree
If this Kadamba tree was the mother Yamuna arrows
I too sit on it and slowly become Kanhaiya
If you would have taken me the flute, you two pennies
Somehow this Kadamba’s branch gets low
I don’t tell you anything but I come secretly
Amma would climb higher from that lower branch
Sitting there then I used to play the flute with great pleasure
Saying Amma-Amma calls you in the voice of Vanshi
Even after calling a lot, when the mother does not come down
Mother, then your mother’s heart would be very troubled for you
You spread the aanchal Amma right there under the tree
My eyes closed while praying to God
Seeing you in mind, I come slowly
and hides under your wide lap
You open your eyes nervous, but mother will be happy
When she could find her Munna Raja in her lap
We used to play something like this, you slowly
If this Kadamba tree was the mother Yamuna arrows
when he first appeared
stubborn eyes stuck
suddenly without an introduction
both eyes even when closed
standing in front of you
his image in pupils
siren, the living root is gone
their memory to forget
how many treatments
But that idol of his
The impression has fallen on the heart
reject or love
God! Many of your worshipers come in many ways
Valuable Gifts in Service They Bring Many Colors
They come to the temple with pomp and show
Muktamani brings you valuable things
I am the poorest who did not bring anything along
Still courageously went to the temple to worship
There is no incense-lamp-naivedya, not the makeup of the tableau
Hi! Not even a necklace of flowers to wear around the neck
How to do kirtan, there is no melody in my voice
There is no tact in speech to express the feeling of the mind
No charity, no dakshina left empty handed
Do not know the method of worship, yet Nath came
Worship and worship Prabhuvar consider this priest
Consider this beggar as donation-dakshina and offering.
I have come to show the thirsty heart of frantic love
Whatever it is, it is near, I have come to offer it
Offered at the feet, accept it if you want
It’s your thing, reject or love
Hey! Give it a shield, let it drink! Heartfelt lovely saki
Don’t be sad, the rest of this short life
Drink so deep that the color remains new
Forget yourselves and aliens; you are the one come to see
Sako! In this intoxication, we will save Mother India
Subhadra Kumari Chauhan Google Doodle
Writer and freedom fighter Subhadra Kumari Chauhan, popular for her poem ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’ on Rani Lakshmi Bai, has been honored with a Google Doodle to commemorate her 117th birth anniversary. Subhadra Kumari Chauhan was born on 16 August 1904 in Nihalpur village near Prayagraj.
Born on August 16, the poetess who is best known for writing ‘Jhansi ki Rani’ also wrote famous titles like Vasant in Jallianwala Bagh, Veeron Ka Kaisa Ho Basant, Rakhi Ki Chahalla and Vida, which gave a unique expression to India’s independence movement.
Chauhan’s poetry and prose mainly centered around the difficulties that Indian women conquered, such as gender and caste discrimination. His poetry was conspicuously underlined by his steadfast nationalism. In 1923, Chauhan’s steadfast activism led her to become the first woman Satyagrahi, a member of the Indian group of non-violent anti-colonialists, to be arrested in the struggle for national liberation. She continued to make revolutionary statements in the struggle for independence both on and off the page in the 1940s, publishing a total of 88 poems and 46 short stories.
