A forceful fighter against atrocities on down trodden people in the society, the explainer of the actual affairs and bitter truth of the society in guise (from) of satire and laughter by putting ocean of meaning in drop of his lyrics, keeper of positive attitude towards illness injured and helpless persons, keeping the feeling of caste cried and religion aside alalong from the very beginning of his childhood, Thy name is Pravin Kumar (Keshri)
In midst of extreme political passion, velger diversities in society exploitation of laborers, farmers and small shop keepers and naked high handed ness of unlawful alliance of upper caste people out going land lords, contractors, big traders, Govt. administrative officials, this Praveen Kumar (Keshri) came in the lap of Prabhawati Devi & Sri Rajendra Prasad Keshri on 15th August 1973 at Ranchi. He got primary education at Garhwa in Palamu Hill View (then St. Xaviers) completed matric in Rama Sahu Ayurvedic High School, Garhwa, for higher education went Patna and from College of Commerce got B.Com and L.L.B. degree.
When he was a school boy, the cast line differentiating altitude of the then Head Master gave birth in the mind of Sri Kumar for struggle, which did occur automatically al-on a sudden.
Though this area presering largest and heaviest minerals in the country but the people of this area were very much below the poverty line in unimaginable number. Proverb “poorest people in richest area” was said then. This Ideology gives birth of struggle for Separate Jharkhand State. To normalize the pressure of such straggle the Central Govt. on 23rd August 1989 formed a Committee on the subject of Jharkhand, and Mr. Shibu Soren, Mr. Ram Dayal Munda, Mr. B.P. Keshri, Mr. Amhar Kumar Singh, Mr. N.E. Horro, Mr. Binod Bihari Mahto, Mr. Suraj Mandal, Mr. Salendra Mahto etc. were nominated members of the said committee. But on the other hand upper class people who so ever in large number attached with benefit of State “Rajsata” called Nuxal Movement. In order to divert the wrong current creatd in the mind of General People the leader of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha – JMM Mr. Sibu Shoren came Garhwa and held Public Meeting wherein scanty presence of public compelled Mr. Soren to utter “The people of Garhwa do not want Jharkhand”, but Mr. Keshri is laud voice among the gathering there soughed we want Jharkhand, Which attracted Mr. Sibu Soren and Mr. Keshri established his identity not in the eye, but in the heart of Mr. Soren.
Immediately after that he became Secretary (Sangthan Sachive) of JMM, Garhwa District. The party recognized his talent and offered post of president of “Jharkhand Yuva Morcha” after that he became acknowledged prominent struglist of his area.
“Economic Break Down” (Arthik Nakebandi) of 1st March 1989 was failure then 72 hours Band (Close) was organized on 20-22 March in which sligh ray of success was indicated on 4th September 1989 decision for Rally on 31st January 1990 at Kolkata was taken in which Mr. Keshri took active part on ward several Dharna, Pradarshans were organized by the strugglist, which pressurized the Bihar Govt. and “Jharkhand Autonomous Council Bill” (Jhrkhand Vikas Parished Vidheyak) was passed by the Bihar Assembly on 18th May 1991 and it was submitted to Home Ministry of Central Govt. but the result became fiasco, then all parties committee was formed wherein it was decided that we do not want less than Separate Jharkhand State. Effective struggle even on road came in to being and Govt. tried its best to smash the struggle by hook & crook. But it became fight of AAR - PAR. Straggliest were arrested and sent to Jail in large number and in the mean time Mr. Keshri was also arrested on 3rd April 1995 and was sent in Garhwa Jail in false (fergy) case. He did not stop his struggle even in Jail and put pressure for several reforms with the help of other under trial prisoners and for removal of several dirty activities like cleaning the drain & washing toilet by poor and helpless people (Bandi). For such dirty activities Mr. Keshri always take active part and he has to under go Bhuka Hartal in the Jail.
After release from the Jail Mr. Keshri and Other struggliest continued their struggle with full force which resulted in the year 1995 and “Jharkhand Area Autonomous Council” (Jharkhand Chhetra Swashasi Parisad) was constituted and the then District President (Jila Adhyaksha) of JMM Sri Subodh Kumar because 1st Councilor (Parshad) of Garhwa, but non coprative attitude of the Bihar Govt. nothing could be done. Being highly aggrieved by the attitude of Bihar Govt. the struggle of Separate Jharkhand State was again started in full swing and supporters from all parties unitedly came under the leadership of Mr. Shibu Soren and the struggle became forcefull. The Central Govt. under NDA on 2nd August 2000 Bihar State Restablishment Bill (Bihar Rajya Punargathan Vidheyak) was placed and passed in the Parliament which was passed on in upper house on 11th August 2000 and got assent of the president on 25th August 2000 and was notified on 1st Nov. 2000 which was implemented on 15th Nov. 2000 and “Jharkhand Separate State” came on the Map of the country.
The Govt. is identifying the person who took active part in struggle like Mr. Praveen Kumar Keshri for Separate Jharkhand State to provided them facilities and to award them for their sacrifice is a matter of welcome. Some times enemy is proved better than that of a selfish friend of low mentality. Most unfortunate for newly created Jharkhan is that it cound not give a estable Govt. in the state till date. Time has come to think thrice without prejudice, leaving the level of party aside “Which party can provide estable Govt., fair administration with sound development of the state all-around”. If the approach will be correct, certainly the following day to come must be brighter and happy for all Jharkhand People.
