Kavi Krishnakumar Mapranam is the culmination of four decades of poetic life. His literary career was achieved through self-effort despite difficult living conditions. Since his family background was poor, he did many types of jobs to support his family in his childhood. As he could not continue his studies beyond the undergraduate education, he completed his graduate studies by studying privately.

He was born and brought up in the village of Madaikonam where he collected books all that time. He was able to work there as a librarian and later as president. It was this library that gave rise to the dream of becoming a writer in Krishna Kumar.

It started by writing the story Kaadum Kizhavanum Namyum in the college magazine. Later he wrote poems, stories and articles in many publications including Kalakaumudi. All his writings depict the nuances of anxieties and dilemmas of social life. All of them are easy to interact with the readers.

He has published the poetry collections Yatramozhi, Mazhanulkanavs, Gold Plated Chembolas, Fingers Touching the Heart, a short story collection titled Kwanja Dukhi and a memoir ‘Swa’karyaman’ told to Orila Mazhatuli.
He has won many awards like Sarga Swaram Sahitya Award, Neovothana Sanskriti Kavita Award, Kavyashikha’s Poetry Award, Kerala Book of Records Award.

Krishnakumar, who worked in the Department of Social Justice, retired as a senior clerk in the Department of Justice. He runs an online magazine called Seven Leaves (Ezhital) to encourage the new generation of poets. He continues to be active in the field of literature despite his leisure life and is working in association with many literary arts and cultural groups like Monsoon Sahitya Vedi, Namana, Sarga Swaram etc.
