About Indira Sant:

Indira Sant (1914 – 2000) was a Marathi poetess from Belgaum.

She was born on January 4, 1914, as Indira Dikshit.

She studied at Rajaram College in Kolhapur, and Fergusson College in Pune where she met her future husband Narayan Sant. Four years after their marriage, the two published in 1940 a joint collection of their poems titled Sahawas (सहवास). Narayan Sant died in 1946. The pain of loss of her husband found its expression in some of her poems. The principal theme of most of her poetry is love and longing. The love of nature is also evident in her poems. Her poetry further pertains to different dimensions of a woman’s life.Sant wrote about 25 books. She worked first as a professor and then as the principal in a teacher’s training college in Belgaum.
