Dr. B. K. MozaShri Arjan Dev Majboor is a distinguished Kashmir' poet, besides being a seasoned scholar, writer, journalist and translator. Born in Zainapora in District Pulwama of Kashmir in 1924 he had his early education in Pulwama. Subsequently he went for further education to Srinagar and Lahore. He is M.A in Hindi. After in initial career as a teacher, he distinguished himself as a promising Kashmiri poet in 1955 by bringing out his original work in Kashmiri verse, Kalame-Majboor and a translation of Kalidasa's Meghdoot in Kashmiri language. Subsequently he joined J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages at Srinagar. Since his displacement, in the wake of the outbreak of terrorist turmoil at Srinagar, he migrated to Udhampur and with all constraints, compulsions and agony at heart due to this unfortunate internal displacement, he remained engrossed, as a productive writer, achieving laurels as Kashmiri poet and writer. he brought out in 1993 a volume in Kashmiri language, titled, Padi Samyik, which earned him the "Best Book Award" from J&K Academy of Art & Culture. In 1995 he brought out Teol, in Kashmiri verse which amongst other publications en­titled him to an award. Besides, his numerous publications have won him the All India Radio Award for his contributions to literature. His latest (1999) collections of Kashmiri verse, translated very aptly into English, Waves, was awarded by Poets Foundation, Calcutta the "Poetry Award" - 1999. This book brings out his deep-rooted love for the beautiful valley of Kash­mir the land of his birth where he sees his cultural root. His poems, Portrait of a Child, The Topsy-turvy Tree, Swan, Creation, Chiselled Words, etc. reveal his acute observation of life and na­ture, contrast between "innocence and experience", satirical views on present social scenario that exist in industrial towns and his broad humanitarian outlook. Shri T.N. Koul rightly says "Arjan Dev Majboor's poetry's marked by deftness of expression, deep in­trospection, progressive outlook and mature treatment. His works constitute a muffled outcry of his bruised heart against the disap­pearance of old values and the disequilibrium of modern life."
