Renowned journalist and writer Padma Shri Kanhaiya Lal Nandan passed away here today.

He was 77 and survived by his widow and two daughters. Nandan was admitted to a private hospital last Wednesday following low blood pressure and aberrations in breathing.

He breathed his last this morning. He was on dialysis for some time.

Nandan, who was honoured with the Bhartendu Award, had been the editor of Parag, Sarika and Dinman. He had also worked as the feature editor with Hindi daily Navbharat Times.

Besides having penned more than 36 books, he was also well known as a poet and lyricist.

Nandan would be cremated at Lodhi road cremation grounds, family sources informed.

Born on July 1, 1933 in Parsadepur village in Fatehpur, Uttar Pradesh, Nandan started his career as a journalist with a magazine titled 'Dharmyug'. Some of his famous writings include 'Lakua ka shahnama', 'Ghat Ghat ka Pani', 'Aaj ke rang', 'Guzra kahan kahan se' and 'Samay ki dehleez'.
