Writings & Styles[edit]

Ravindra Prabhat, best remembered for his debut novel ‘Taki Bacha Rahe Loktantra' is one of the powerful and emerging voices amongst India's post colonial literary stalwarts.

Dr. Virendra Kumar Basu[26]
"Unless the Social System does not come till then the financial crisis will remain as it exist in the present system for Dalits." Taki Bacha Rahe Loktantra (Novel), Hindyugm Books, 2011.
"Love is expressed as an action and experienced as a feeling." Prem Na Hat Bikay (Novel), Hindyugm Books, 2012

Ravindra Prabhat is a realistic poet. The impressionable images created by him allow his readers to introspect. His poems revolve around the nuances of life. The plays around his choice of words create magic in the mind of his readers. His poems carry an earthy essence with a nostalgic yearning.[26]

As a social painter Ravindra Prabhat paints a lovely picture of the hypocrisy, bureaucracy and plutocracy through his Literary world for the revival of a different facets of nature and exhales his creative fragrance for the essence of the critic world. His more than two and half decades selfless service to the literary world has reserved a permanent berth in the popular psyche of the creative milieu.[26]

His mastery over the use of imagery in his poetry makes Ravindra Prabhat a poet to reckon with. his landmark Poem, 'See Dumb Man', is an innovative hindi Ghazal. His poetic message is to love one another and turn this earth into a dale of eternal bliss. Love all living beings and make a heavenly world on this strife-stricken earth. The poet propounds the philosophy of suffering of life in his poem ‘ See Dumb Man.[26]

In most of his poems, Prabhat comes as a poet with a strong tender voice. He partakes in the mundane aspect of life with a passion that makes his readers elevate to a higher self.[26]

Like Tagore Ravindra Prabhat is primarily a spring suitor who inhales all forms of spring for spiritual consciousness and exhales poetic fragrances to the outside world. T. S. Eliot calls the hollow men of the modern society because they are deprived of morality, spirituality and ideology and possess only the flesh into to. Like T. S. Eliot Ravindra Prabhat exposes the hollowness of modern man who lives in the fool’s paradise for want of conscience. Man has become thirsty of one’s blood. It is quite impossible for a man to have faith in another because faithfulness has become a story of the past for them. On the contrary people extend their helping hands to those who are fraudsters, black marketers, cheaters and butchers on the name of friendship, peace and prosperity.

Dr. Virendra Kumar Basu, Critic[26]

His landmark short story, 'RASBATIYA', is an innovative story. This story about the consultations inviolable basis. This is a sordid tale of a rural village lady of North East India.[27]


"If a Bloggers dies without transforming his/her knowledge to the new generation, the knowledge is meaningless."
Ravindra Prabhat[28]

"Alliteration the mind -
life is a honeymoon
vernal song on the
humble bee's lips,
Alcoholic realized
in the mustard flower,
as like friend ."
"The dog may be man
Horse, donkey, too
But the bull -
Man can not
