Krishan Chander

About this author

Krishan Chander was born on 23 November 1914 in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. He was an Indian Urdu and Hindi writer of short stories and novels. Some of his works have also been translated into English.

In the 1930s, he studied at Forman Christian College, Lahore, and edited the English section of the college house magazine, and was at that time interested in English writings. As the then editor of the Urdu section of the magazine, Mehr Lal Soni Zia Fatehabadi was instrumental to his career in having got published, in the year 1932, Chander’s first Urdu short story, “Sadhu”.

His literary masterpieces on the Bengal famine and the savagery and barbarism that took place at the time of the partition of India in 1947 are some of the finest specimens of modern Urdu literature, but at other times, too, he continued relentlessly to critique the abuse of power, poverty and the suffering of the wretched of the earth.
