I didn’t really like studying Hindi in class IX and X. I liked the period because we would have to change classes and there would be the inevitable chaos and struggle for seats. There were quite a few good poems and stories. There were also some good essays. But on the whole, I didn’t really like giving Hindi exams. However I really liked some of the stuff we had to read.
There was “परशुराम की प्रतीक्षा” by Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, there were poems by Harivanshrai Bachchan and others. There were essays by Hazari Prasad Dwivedi. It was actually quite a good course. I should actually have studied it with a bit more interest.
My favourites were however the dohas of Kabir and Rahim.
And as usual, you can find anything you want on google.
There are also links to Rahim’s dohas and many other literary works.
This is why I love the internet.
