T. Sampath Kumar

Over his thirty-eight-year career, Sampath Kumar travelled widely across India in connection with human developmental projects. This included working in areas devastated by natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis. These challenging and enriching professional engagements helped him write stories, poetry, articles, essays, photo-features, middles, research papers and novels. Some of his literary works have been translated into Hindi, English and Punjabi. He has also published two anthologies of stories in Telugu.

In 2017, he published his first novel in Telugu, Kadalikalu, with the backdrop of the devastating earthquake that shook the tiny country of Nepal in 2015. His book of Telugu poetry (100 epigrams) has been translated into English with the title Terse Verse on the Tsunami. He donated the proceeds from the sale of these two books to Indian NGOs.

Since his retirement in 2015, Sampath has been engaged with multiple developmental activities as an NGI (Non-Government Individual). He designs and conducts participatory workshops and trains students, focused groups and couples on improving their quality of life.

Sampath shuttles between New Delhi and his hometown, Nirmal. Currently, he is researching and interacting with people and communities in preparation for a novel in English, slated to be released in 2023.
