DYFI CEC dips its white flag with deep sorrow in the passing away of Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The Central Executive Committee of the Democratic Youth Federation of India dips its white flag with deep sorrow in the passing away of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He was one of the most preeminent writers of magical realism. He was a great man who gave great reach and prestige to the spanish literature. Although Gabriel Garcia Marquez is known as a master of Magical Realism, reality is a central theme in much of his work. Marquez claimed much of his early work, all reflect the reality of life in Colombia and this theme determines the rational structure of the books.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez was born in Aracataca, Colombia on the sixth of March. 1928.Until Marquez was eight, he lived with his maternal grandparents in Aracataca. His grandmother, Tranquilina Iguaran Cotes, was an avid storyteller. She gave Marquez a deep reservoir of folkloric knowledge about omens, premonitions, dead ancestors and ghosts. The sincere manner in which she told her stories would have a profound effect on the mature writings of Gabriel García Marquez. His grandfather, Ricardo Marquez Mejia, had fought in at least two Colombian civil conflicts. His stories of battle and conflict captured Gabriel García Marquez’s imagination.

He has left us in years of solitude. But, his unique gift of imagination, the ability to find sotires from surroundings, all will inspire the generations to come. The CEC of DYFI join the millions who are in deep sorrow with his passing away.
