Krant M. L. Verma (born Madan Lal Verma, 1947) is an Indian poet, writer and verse translator, who writes in Hindi, Sanskrit, Urdu, and English under the pen name of Krant.[1][2]

He was awarded a senior fellowship for postdoctoral research in the field of Hindi literature by the government of India on the topic "Krantikari Hindi Sahitya Mein Rashtriya Chetna" in 2004.[2]


Krant M. L. Verma was born to Ram Dulari and Ram Lal on 20 December 1947 in the village Tilokpur, Shahjahanpur district, Uttar Pradesh.[1] He obtained a BSc from Bareilly College of erstwhile Agra University, now known as Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar University, Agra and an MA in Hindi literature from Rohilkhand University.[3] He is married and has two children.[1] He lives with his family in Greater Noida.[4]


When Verma applied to the Government of India for senior fellowship in order to research the writings of people who had been involved in the Indian independence movement, he was working in the Central Bank of India. His service conditions would have prevented him from being awarded the fellowship, so he resigned his job to complete his project.[5][6]
