By enriching Dogri literature and its different genres Narender Khajuria (1933-70) has contributed indirectly to the building up of the corpus of Indian Literature. He produced a considerable body of literature, both in Dogri and Hindi within a span of 15 years. He was awarded a prize by Jammu and Kashmir Cultural Academy for his collection of One-Act Plays' As Bhag Jagane Ale Aan. He also won the Sahitya Akademi Award (posthumously) for his collection of short stories, Neela Ambar, Kale Badal. Though he died at the age of 37, he has carved out a permanent niche for himself in Dogri Literature.

He has also translated a number of books into Dogri. In this slender volume Professor Sharma evaluates the life and work of Narender Khajuria for the benefit of non-Dogri readers.
