Finale :

Chatru Nagpal is basically a short story writer, having an itch for humour & satire.  Most of his writings are satirical humour.  Even titles of his short story collections are suggestive to that effect :  (1) Youth is only for four days (2) The Jam made of thorns.  At least half a dozen titles are to his credit, out of which one Dilbar Put Muhinjo  is a long narrative poem, at the death of his beloved son, who committed suicide under mysterious circumstances.  It is a heart rendering and tragically chilling narration.

He has received a few awards from literary associations, most important being that of NCPSL.  Some of his short stories are translated in Hindi.
