- Kranti Trivedi was born on 28th September, 1930 in Raipur (Chhattisgarh), in the family of Pt. Ravi Shankar Shukla, the first Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. She exhibited her writing skills in different forms of literature through simple language and interesting subject matter in order to arouse spontaneous interest as well as to inspire the readers to read more and more Hindi Literature. Simplicity of language, easy flow and contextual relevance of the subject matter in her writings were evident in stories published in popular Hindi magazines such as Saptahik Hindustan, Dharamyug, Kadambini, Navneet, Sarika etc. Her most successful and popular story titled ‘Phoolon Ko Kya Ho Gaya‘ has established its separate identity being included in the manifestation programme of the internet. Propagation of Hindi and issues relating to women were the two corner stones of all her writings.
- The first six novels of Kranti Trivedi have proved to be milestones in creating interest in Hindi as well as in propagating Hindi Literature. Later, in mythological novels, she highlighted the varied emotions of a woman. ‘Shagun Pakshi‘, ‘Krishna Paksha‘, ‘Amrit Ghat‘, ‘Mohbhang‘, ‘Bund–Bund Amrit‘ and ‘Aathvan Janma‘ are her powerful social novels in which the problems of women have been raised with great empathy. During her lifetime, she brought out approximately 40 books and four manuscripts are now under publication. An unpublished manuscript titled “Lata aur Vriksha“ has been published recently.
- The story ‘Phoolon Ka Sapna‘ is a story of redressal of the issues related to caste discrimination. In the novel ‘Ashesh‘, the role of Zamindars in the freedom movement has been adduced. In “Agam“, clashes between eastern and western cultures have been described emphasizing harmony being established between these two cultures. The novel ‘Main Aur Mera Samay‘ is a biography of her father Pt. Ravi Shankar Shukla told in first person. ‘Atishikshan‘ is a compilation of poems infused with spontaneous feelings. ‘Patte Ki Nav‘, ‘Mithee Boli‘, ‘Peeli Haveli‘ and ‘Kut Kut Chuha‘, ‘Nanhe Jasoos‘ are her popular stories for children. While being natural, simple, interesting and touching, all her works contain valuable messages for humanity.
- Smt Kranti Trivedi was honoured with many awards like Hindi Sevi Samman for the year 2002 and she was conferred “Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Puruskar“ for 2002 by Uttar Pradesh Hindi Sansthan of the Government of Uttar Pradesh. She was also awarded ‘Rashtriya Hindi Sewa Millenium Samman‘ by UNESCO and ‘Nari Lekhan Puraskar‘ by Rashtra Bhasha Prachar Samiti of the Govt. of Madhya Pradesh.
