Nand Kishore Acharya
Acharya himself grew to find his own distinct voice in literature. Even Ajneya, when he first met Acharya, found it difficult to believe that the young man was the author of Ajneya ki kaavya Titirsha.
His plays, poems criticism, articles on issues of contemporary concerns and on education and his translations have been praised. Ajneya called him the "inimitable bard of the beauty of the desert".
He has translated many classical as well as modern and contemporary poets including Riocaan, Brodsky and Lorca and the works of M.N. Roy.
Currently a Professor of Eminence at IIIT Hyderabad, Acharya teaches courses on themes as diverse as non-violence and development. He is a life member of Vatsalnidhi Trust. He is also an Assistant Editor in Everyman's, Co-Editor of Naya Pratik, and Editor of Arumaru, Marudeep and Chiti.
