Short Essay on My Favourite Poet in English in English (150 Words)

There are many well known names of great poets in the world of literature. Hindi literature is a repository of many great poets. I especially like the life and poetry of Goswami Tulsidas. Reading his poetry gives me a lot of inspiration. Goswami Tulsidas was born in 1532. Scholars differ on his year of birth and place. Some scholars consider his birth place as Rajpur (Banda district) and some as Soron (Etah district). There is no concrete information regarding his parents. According to the materials and evidence obtained, his mother’s name was Hulsi and father’s name was Atmaram Dubey.

Tulsi’s childhood was spent in severe suffering. He had to live alone, separated from his parents. Initially they used to live by begging. His guru’s name was Swami Narharidas. Tulsidas was married to Ratnavali. By her preaching, he devoted to God. He travelled to many pilgrimages like Ayodhya, Kashi, Chitrakoot etc. For a long time he continued to sing about Lord Rama. He died in 1623.Tulsi’s poems have only one theme- devotion to ‘Maryada Purushottam Rama’. He wrote many compositions. His famous compositions are ‘Ramcharitmanas’, ‘Vinayapatrika’, ‘Ramlala Nahchhu’, ‘Janaki Mangal’, ‘Parvati Mangal’, ‘Gitavali’, ‘Barwai Ramayana’, ‘Dohavali’, ‘Kavitavali’, ‘Hanuman Bahuk’ and ‘Vairagya Sandipani’. ‘Ramcharitmanas’ is the biggest basis of his fame and popularity. He has presented a tableau of Ram’s entire life in ‘Ramcharitmanas’. In ‘Vinayapatrika’ he has expressed his devotional spirit in melodious songs. Tulsidas was a great poet. His ‘chaupaiyan’ and ‘dohe’ are great. Singers are blessed even today by singing them. His language is very simple. Tulsidas is called ‘Sun’ of Hindi literature. With his talent, not only Hindu society and India, but the whole world is being illuminated. His creations have a deep impact on my mind and that is why he is my favorite poet.
