Dr. Nikky Guninder Kaur - "Bhai Vir Singh's Cosmic Symphony and its Poetic Resonance"

Dr. Nikky Guninder Kaur's presentation explores Bhai Vir Singh’s early and final lyrics from his respective anthologies Trel Tupke and Mere Sainyan Jio. The images and themes important to Bhai Vir Singh early on in life replay in amazing beauty years later in his final poetic discourse. Together, they provide valuable insights into the poet’s vast psychological and mystical world. Through the profound simplicity of his language and the intensity of his emotions, Bhai Vir Singh creates a cosmic symphony that is both magical and practical. My paper analyzes the aesthetic power of his poetry that continues to resonate in the psyche of his readers. How exactly does his artistic pen inspire intellectual vigor and moral responsibility?

Asar is the fourth month of Barah Maha. It is sweltering heat. The earth endures pain and suffering as the sun sucks all of the life from the defenseless vegetation. The heat is a symbol of a human-bride, the seeker who is disconnected from IkOankar. Follow the human-bride as she finds realization in her anxieties and the external pains in her life.
