अंगिका काव्य और कवि

अंगिका उस अंग महाजनपद की भाषा है, जिसे पुराणों में अंगदेश के नाम से भी जाना गया है, जिस देश :क्षेत्र, की नींव बली के पुत्र अंग ने अपने नाम पर रखी थी और कि जिस चक्रवर्ती अंग के संबंध में यह कथन है कि उसने सम्पूर्ण पृथ्वी को जीतकर अश्वमेध यज्ञ किया था। ‘अंग समन्तं सर्वतः पृथ्वीं जयन्परीयायाश्वेन च मेध्येनेज इति।’ :ऐतरेय ब्राह्मण-ण्ण्ण्९/८/२१,। चक्रवर्ती सम्राटों की संख्या अंग जनपद में कम नहीं रही है। चक्रवर्ती अंग के ही वंश में पृथु का जन्म हुआ, जो न केवल राजसूय यज्ञ से अभिसिक्त होने वाला प्रथम राजा हुआ, बल्कि अपने यशोगान से प्रसन्न होकर सूत को अनूप देश और मगध को मगध देश दे दिया था। इन पौराणिक कथाओं पर वाद-विवाद हो सकता है, लेकिन इतना तो स्पष्ट है कि अंग की स्थापना ऋग्वेद काल में ही चुकी थी, इसे एक स्वर से  सभी इतिहासकार स्वीकार करते हैं। :देखें-राधा कृष्ण चैधरी/हिस्टंी आॅफ बिहार/१९५८ पृ.ण्ण्ण्ण्ण्ण्॰, ‘संस्कृति के चार अध्याय’ में… Read More
