Gangaraja Kapdi



Jee Naam ! --- The words, uttered in a specially prolonged and raised voice, with which he used to greet people.
 So characteristic it was that the words became almost his synonym : Its utterance itself became his identity.
 
He dedicated his entire life to the service of the people around him.
Accompanied by his constant, faithful companions --- Lalaram the donkey and Motiram the dog ---
he traversed the tough terrain of the drought-prone Kutch region on foot, in the scorching desert sun,
to try and quench the thirst of people dying for water.

Dattatreya Temple in Girnar
where Guru Dattatreya is believed to have gifted him Kaavad
(a pair of leather bags, hanging in balance, one each from either end of a strong wooden rod)
which later became synonymous with him.
   
He did hard penance, spending 12 years each at  Bilkha Jungi Lodai and Dhrang
establishing at each place a Dhoono (encampment for worship).

Chandaji Jesal, a notorious social discard, was persuaded to return to the path of good by Sati Toral,
the virtuous wife of Kathi saint Sasatiya, a resident of
Kathiawad
  
 
Bhajans explaining the deeper meaning of life composed by Jesal Peer and Sati Toral are still throbbing in the hearts of the masses.

( Mohanlal Rayani )
Jesal once sneaked into the house of Sasatiya with the intention of stealing the three things Sasatiya prided on :
his famed
Tori female horse, his Tori sword and his wife Toral.
Jesal got caught in the act.
  However, the magnanimous Sasatiya, unbelievable as it might sound, gifted Jesal all the three !
  
  
Jesal Kund  (near Dhrol : Dist. Kutch)
where Jesal rested on his way back home in Kutch along with the three 'gifts'.
.It was here that Jesal first got the Parcho (evidence) of the divine powers Toral was believed to be blessed with.
She, with this power of hers, could sense the intention Jesal harboured to steal cows as the cattle came to the kund to drink water
and dissuaded him from carrying out the sinful idea.

( Hemu Gadhavi - Dina Gandharv )
Again, while crossing the creek between Kathiawad and Kutch,
Jesal-Toral encountered a storm which threatened to overturn their boat.
While Jesal paniced, Toral --- as calm and composed as ever ---
consoled him, advising him to pray to God with all of his heart and make a clean breast of each one of his past sins.
As he started praying as advised by Toral,  the storm slowly weakened and eventually passed off.

( Imail Valera )
Jesal sang this Bhajan to awaken the unconscious Toral
Jesal was all grief as Toral was leaving for Mewar to be at a religious ceremony.
He, somehow, had a feeling that it was their last meeting.
And so, alas, it turned out : Jesal passed away while Toral was away.

( Dina Gandharv )
Learning about it on her return Toral is believed to have persuaded Jesal to 'wake up'.
What about our word to each other --- she as if reminded Jesal in her voiceless utterance ---  to go to the 'world beyond' together ?
And, lo, Jesal woke up --- as if from deep slumber  ! 
They, eventually, took Samadhi together --- true to their word to each other.

The Saintly Voices from Sorath
  


1947
 A collection of 104 Bhajans (Devotional Songs)
which he jotted down in his notebooks as he moved  places researching  folklore,
       
When the final proofs of his fairly exhaustive, almost 50-page introduction to the book, already printed, arrived to be finalised by him,
Meghani had left this world --- just the night before.
Over the few months prior to this he, who was immersed lifelong --- and neck-deep --- in creating literature,
  seemed to be leaning towards something which he, as if suddenly, realised he had missed out on : 
Saintly Literature --- especially the Devotional Songs.
An undercurrent of his inclination for this, though, perhaps flowed underneath his other writings all along.    
Indeed, he thereafter stopped writing poetry altogether, realising the literature already there more than echoed his feelings.  
  
   Meghani illustrates

A weaver by profession, he composed and sang devotional songs, which came naturally to him as he wove for his livelihood.
He showed, by example, that one could worship even while working and carrying on the daily duties of life.
He further showed --- by example again --- that what finally mattered was one's deeds in life rather than one's birth.
His influence was not limited to any religion or sect and he is revered even today by Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs alike.

She chose to do this through devotional songs, which she composed, one every day, for the next 52 days, interpreting life and unlocking the secrets thereof.
