Makhanlal Chaturvedi

Makhanlal Chaturvedi (April 04, 1889 - January 30, 1968), also called Panditji, was an Indian poet, writer and journalist who is particularly remembered for his participation in India's national struggle for independence.

He was repeatedly incarcerated by the British rulers. After independence in 1947, he refrained from seeking position in the government, instead continuing to speak and write against social evils and in support of an exploitation-free, equitable society as envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi.

The Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita University is named in his honor.
