Bahinabai Chaudhari

Bahinabai Chaudhari (Marathi:बहiाबाई चौधरी) is the world famous Marathi poetess born in Kasoda, Jalgaon District in 1880. She was in traditional sense “illiterate”, however her genius is original. Her understanding of human life is difficult to fathom. Though widowed early, she was self sufficient and independent. Her poems is an invaluable treasure of Marathi literature. They reflect her real day-to-day life and are composed in the form of Leva Marathi 'Owees' which are simple, but very appealing. They explain the wisdom of human life in incredibly simple words. Her minute observation of nature, flora and fauna, green fields, rivers, wells etc. appears in her poems in such a lively form that her poems appear like beautiful paintings. All her philosophic Owees . Her sense of humor, her selection of words prove that she was a naturally “gifted” poetess of Maharashtra ring with moral implications. She breathed her last on 3.12.1951

Sopan Chaudhari, her son who wrote most of her poems for her (since Bahinabai was a total illiterate). However, not all her poems were documented and few were lost.
