Photo - Kundan Lal Chowdhury Information

Description: Kundan Lal Chowdhury was born in Srinagar, the geographical , administrative and political heart of the valley of Kashmir, a few years before India gained its independence from the British and thus grew up in an era of optimism, constructive planning and hope. His parental home in Srinagar was in a locality which is 99.9% Muslim, where his family was one of the few Hindu families. He grew up amongst Muslim childhood friends from families ranging in circumstances from poor to the well connected, the politically savvy and the financially well off. He studied in mixed, secular schools like his siblings. Prejudice was largely absent and both mother and father were accepted by all and sundry in the Muslim community as friends and advisors on a wide range of issues.

As a poet Kundan Lal Chowdhury is concerned with the universal human concerns in a world dominated by big power, big money and big guns.

i translated his poem in hindi
some years back doctor sahib wrote a poem about kashmir which was printed in the beginning of the docment why homeland.i translated the document in hindi and along with it his poem too.he liked the translation and his comment was ,"if i would have translad it i would have done it the same way."
some people say that he is Tennyson of kashmir. i dont agree. he cannot be tennyson. he is just K.L.Chowdhary who feels for kashmir who has experienced its agony, and cannot restrain speaking about it. tennyson's world is more comfortable than his.

Dr.K.L.Chaudhry a noble Doctor in contemporary times will be remembered by the community members as a person who conceived homeland p
erception but was instrumental in dismantaling the structure of Panun Kashmir.As a poet he writes sattiric and romantisim, whereas a revelutionary poet is to be expected of him.
