Tripuraneni Gopichand (8 September 1910 – 2 November 1962) was a radical humanist, Telugu short story writer, novelist, editor, essayist, playwright and film director. Gopichand was the son of renowned a social reformer and play writer Tripuraneni Ramaswamy .Gopichand, inspired by M.N.Roy's Radical Humanism, became the first state secretary of the Radical Democratic Party (India) Andhra Pradesh.[1] His second novel 'Asamardhuni Jeevana Yatra' (Bungler: A Journey Through Life), was the first psychological novel in Telugu literature.[2] Gopichand was posthumously awarded the Sahitya Akademi Award for "Panditha Parameshwara Sastry Veelunama" in 1963, the first Telugu novel to win this award.[3] [4]

His novel "Asamardhuni Jeevana Yatra", is part of the syllabus for APPSC examinations in Telugu literature as an optional subject.

A postal stamp in his honour was released by the Government of India on his 100th birthday.[5][6] The Telugu television channel Sneha TV has broadcast a documentary on his life.
