Mangesh Keshav Padgaonkar, Marathi poet, was born on March 10, 1929 in Vengurla, Sindhudurg District, Maharashtra. A Master of Arts in Marathi and Sanskrit from the University of Bombay, he was an Editor with the U.S. Information Service in Mumbai. Although better known as a poet, he is an accomplished essayist. He is the recipient of several awards including the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1980, the M.P. Literary Conference Award in 1956 and the Maharashtra State Award in 1953 and 1955.

Mangesh Padgaonkar combines his romanticism with "an idealistic fibre of Gandhian colour." In his later works "his images, especially of the beauty of nature, came to have a firmer contour." This later poetry developed "new shoots, and impressive ones -- the satirical being one of them. But at the core, he is an unblushing romantic; his description of his alter ego as a gypsy is appropriate." These comments are quoted from the work, A history of Marathi literature by Kusumawati Deshpande and M.V. Rajadhyaksha (New Delhi : Sahitya Akademi, 1988).

He has forty publications to his credit. The Library of Congress has acquired thirty-one of his publications.
