Rashmi Rathi Hindi , which means the one who is riding in the chariot of light, is a famous poem of the acclaimed Indian poet, Ramdhari Singh Dinkar. Rashmi Rathi Hindi narrates the story of Karna, one of the greatest fighters of his time, and an integral part of the famous Indian epic, the Mahabharata. His birth mother, Kunti, was granted a boon from a sage, that she might choose any deity to appear before her and bless her with a child who would bear his own divine qualities. Kunti thus gave birth to Karna. However, she was plagued by the fear of social stigma, and she set Karna in a basket afloat in the Ganges. Karna was spotted by a charioteer named Adhirath, and he raised him as his own.

Rashmirathi By Ramdhari Singh Dinkar
It is one of the most appreciated works of Dinkar apart from "Kurukshetra" and one of the classics of modern Hindi literature. Karna was the first-born son of Kunti , whom she had abandoned at birth as he was conceived before Kunti's marriage. He was born by the blessing of Sury Dev The Sun. Karna grew up in a lowly family, yet became one of the best warriors of his time. In the Great Mahabharata war, Karna was obliged to fight from the side of Duryodhana as Duryodhana , recognizing his merits, had made him a king and adopted him as a close friend. Karna fighting from Kaurava 's side was a great worry for Pandavas as he was reputed to be unconquerable in war. The way Dinkar has presented the story of Karna with all hues of human emotions trapped in moral dilemmas is simply marvelous.
