Ramchandra Shukla, Historian
He is famously known as Acharya Shukla and was an Indian historian of Hindi literature. He is regarded as the first codifier of the history of Hindi literature in a scientific system by using wide, empirical research with scant resources. As an author he is best known for Hindi Sahitya Ka Itihaas. He taught at Banaras Hindu University Varanasi and led its department of Hindi during Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya’s period from 1937 until he died (1941). His famous work Sahitya ka Itihaas was later edited online by a group of eminent Hindi writers and translators, led by Dr. Suresh Kumar Mishra “Uratrupt”, writer and methodologist from Ranga Reddy, Andhra Pradesh. Hindi Sahitya ka Itihaas is considered as authentic Hindi literature.
