The noted Urdu fiction writer Joginder Paul was born in Sialkot in present day Pakistan and migrated to India at the time of Partition. His mother tongue is Punjabi, but his primary and middle school education was in Urdu medium.


He did his M.A. in English literature, which he taught until he retired as the principal of a post-graduate college in Maharashtra. Mr. Paul chose to put his creative expression in Urdu language, as he believes that Urdu is 'not a language but a culture' and for him writing is to be in the culture. He was part of the Progressive Urdu Writers' Movement.
Mr. Paul's nineteen fictional works are widely read not only in India but also in Pakistan. In all his writings he exposed social ills and all his characters are full of life and their struggles. He has won all the important awards that an Urdu writer can achieve.
Among his works, Dharti ka lal (1961), Main kyun socum (1962), Mati ka idrak (1970),Khudu Baba ka maqbara (1994), Parinde(2000), Bastiyan (2000) (all short stories),Amad va raft (1975), Bayanat (1975) (both novelettes), Be muhavara (1978), Be irada(1981) (both short fiction), Nadid (1983),Khavab-i-rau (1991) (both novels) are most sought after.
