In obituary to Namdeo Dhasal, (Voice of the oppressed: 7 February 2014 issue) two titles of Namdeo Dhasal's books of collection of poems are mentioned viz. 'Moorkh Mhataryane' & 'Dongar Halavale'. It is actually a single book of collection of poems titled 'Moorkh Mhataryane Dongar Halavale meaning 'the foolish old man who shook the mountains'. It was brought out by Magowa Prakashan, a new left group functional in Maharashtra in the seventies.
