For more than two decades now, Meera Kant has incessantly endeavoured to bring to centre-stage the muffled voices of the marginalised through her fiction, plays and occasionally, long poems and articles. The strife torn woman in search of her identity and the less fortunate, left out of the main stream of the social hubble bubble, is the leit- motif of her literature.
Meera Kant’s creative journey has traversed the undulating inner world of the ever struggling woman and the stumped ordinary mortals, bereft of their right to live with dignity. The text and sub-text of her writings give vent to the unsung and unheard dirge of the hapless miserable, which in turn transforms itself into haunting reverberations in the psyche of the readers.
The profound and well knit prefaces of Meera Kant's plays Ihamrig, Bhuvaneshwar Dar Bhuvaneshwar, Huma Ko Ud Jane Do, Ant Haazir Ho and Prem Sambandhon Ki Kahaniyan has been written by Dr. Sushma Bhatnagar which make forays into the inner world of these creative endeavours and provide a deep insight into their dramatic sub-text.
Born in 1958, Srinagar, Meera Kant has completed her MA from the University of Delhi and PhD from Jamia Millia Islamia. Her research thesis was on Antarrashtriya Mahila Dashak Mein Hindi Patrakarita Ki Boomika (Role of Hindi Journalism in the International Women’s decade). She was an Editor at the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), New Delhi till October 2011 when she took voluntary retirement.
