the most celebrated Indian writers of early 20th century, and regarded as
"Upanyas Samrat", Munshi Premchand was born on 31 July 1880. He
began his writing career when the Indian Independence movement was atits
peak. Through his early writings, he expressed his support for the cause of
freedom. In 1910, his collection Soz-e-Watan was labelled rebellious on account of its message which provoked Indians to overthrow the British empire and gain independence. Some of Premchand's seminal works include Sevasadan, Rangbhoomi, Nirmala,
Kaayakalp, Gaban and Godaan among others. His last published story was
'Cricket Match', which appeared in Zamana in 1938, posthumously.
Munshi Premchand died on 8 October 1936, at the age of 56.
