Jaishankar Prasad was a prominent writer of modern Hindi Literature. He was born on 30 Januray 1890 in Sarai Goverdhan in Kashi. He underwent his basic education in Kashi and later he took lessons in Sanskrit, Hindi, Urdu and Persian at his home. He was bestowed with the titles of a poet, playwright and novelist. He died on 15 November, 1937 in Kashi due to tuberculosis. A classic Hindi novel, Kankal depicts the true picture of the ills of human civilization.With his spectacular narrative techniques, Jaishankar Prasad hits at the stark reality of the Indian society. It unveils the curtain of illusion and reveals the threadbare atrocious reality of several double-faced institutions like social service organizations, religious preachers and politicians, and how they exploit widows and innocent children. These scenarios are still relevant in the Indian context.
