Darshan Singh Awara (1906–1982) is an Indian poet, who started writing verse under the impulse of the Indian Freedom Struggle in the early 1920s. The tone and diction of these poems were nationalist revolutionary and they were first published in a volume named Bijii di Tarak (The Lap of Lightning). It was confiscated by the British Government. A second volume was published many years later in 1940 under the title Bhaghawat (Rebellion), followed in 1941 by Main Baghi Han (I am a Rebel). The rebellion at this state has gone from mere political defiance of the British rulers to the more fundamental spiritual rebellion against the belief in an all-pervading divinity and the principles and tactics of institutional religion. Awara saw the variety of religions in India as obstacles in the way not only of the National struggle for freedom but also of basic humanity. He died in 1982.
