The world is divided into People who have come into close contact with this guy and those who haven't. And, if by any chance, you happen to be a Gujarati, or if by any chance, you know the Gujarati language - then you should + must + ought to + know him !

Ramesh Parekh, a poet by default is a person who worship the 'word', bows his head at the altar of alphabet the moment he wakes up and, when he sleeps, language plays with him in dreams.

For Gujarati language he has done so much that it is almost impossible to write down all the things about him here. As a matter of fact, you'll have to wait very long to download his work, and will need a really big hard-disk! Period.

He plays with words like a little boy plays with his favourite toy and as an end-result you get the rich experience of rediscovering your own self. His words are his own -not an echo of somebody else. He is a proverbial 'mother' of so many great poetries.

Born in 1940, Ramesh Parekh, has lived various moods & emotions with very analytical & logical attitude with a heart of a poet. He is for Gujarati what 'Kalidas' is for Sanskrit or 'Shakespear' is for English or 'Dostoyevskis' is for Russion or 'Tagore' is for Bengali or 'Ghalib' for urdu!

Currently residing in Rajkot. he spends his time in creation with pen & ink.
