Rangeya Raghav

Rangeya Raghava (रांगेय राघव) (17 January 1923 – 12 September 1962), birth name Tirumalai Nambakam Vir Raghava Acharya, was born in Agra, a city of Uttar Pradesh state, India. A prominent Hindi writer of the 20th century, he completed his post-graduation studies from St. John's College, Agra, and later completed his Ph.D. on Guru Gorakhnath and his times. He started writing at the age of 13 years, and during his short life of 39 years, he was endowed with a number of prizes. His wife Sulochana Rangeya Raghava lives in Jaipur and has been an Associate Professor of Sociology in the University Of Rajasthan. There is a Inter College in Ambedkar Nagar District named Rangey Raghav Inter College after him.

One of his famous novels Kab tak pukaroon (How Long Do I Call) was made into a television series for Doordarshan. It was directed by late Sudhanshu Mishra and produced by Sudhir Mishra. It dealt with the conflicts between two social groups of India, the nomadic community of Nats (like Romani of Europe) and the Thakurs - both groups placed at different hierarchical social levels in the Indian traditional society of yesteryears. His other novel, Murdon Ka Teela (The Mound of The Dead), published in 1948, is the story of Indus valley civilization, and incorporates many archaeological discoveries.
