31st July 1880 !!
One of the greatest literary figures -not just in India ,but in the whole world- was born in a non-descript village in Eastern Uttar Pradesh !! I am on record having stated that the Literature Nobel stands diminished for not having ever entertained a nomination on his behalf ! His impact on the society far exceeds that of Sinclair Lewis , Rudyard Kipling, Pearl S. Buck ,Harold Pinter, and Ernest Hemingway put together!!
Most of his literary masterpieces were written in a small cabin literally - and I mean literally- across the road from the dwelling that I currently inhabit !!
My homage and salutations to Munshi Premchand !!
