Stamp Information : Kamta Prasad Guru was born on December 25, 1875 in Sagar (Madhya Paradesh). From the very beginning of his career he had great liking and aptitude for language and literature. After passing the matricuation examination at the age of 17, he joined the Education Department as an Assistant Master and retired from the Government service as a teacher in 1928. Kamta Prasad Guru served the cause of Hindi literature in its varied branches. He was a close friend of Acharya Mahavir Prasad Dwivedi at whose request he asumed the editorship of the well-known Hindi monthly magazine 'Saraswati' and the children's magazine 'Balasakha' for a brief spell. Most of his famous poems, essays and articles were published in 'Saraswati'. Among his published works Sudarshan (drama), Satya-Prem (short novel), Parvati aur Yashoda (translation from Oriya) and Hindua\stani Shishtachar deserve special mention. However, the literary fame of Kamta Prasad Guru rests on his immortal work in the field of Hindi grammer. He is called the 'Panini of Hindi'. He worked for several years to complete the great task of compiling this magnum opus on Hindi Grammer. For a comparative study of grammers of other Indian languages, he studied and mastered Marahi, Gujarati, Bengali, Oriya, Urdu and English. His Hindi grammer has also been translated into foreign languages. Kamta Prasad Guru died in Jabalpur on November 16, 1947. The Posts and Telegraphs Department fels privileged to issue a commemorative stamp in honour of this great literary figure.
