This doesn't happen usually that a poet or literature scholar have the same vision of looking at the romantic and painful sufferings of life with the attitude of looking at day to day life with same vision. If and when this happens the person can only be identified as the master mind.

This is to true depth and variety of Sindhi literature that we have one such visionary personality in the form of Arjun Mirchandani, most commonly known and famous with his pen name "Arjun Shad.

Arjun Mirchandani born in the year 1924 and started his literature journey at the tender age of 14 with some romantic poems. The romance went on to turn into patriotism as those were days of freedom struggle for the Indians.

His poetic heart get most effected from the pains and agony of partition and in the year 1957 published his poem collection reflecting sufferings of common person.
