    K. Gopal Iyer hailed from Tamil Nadu. But his interest in popular movements took him to Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Punjab and other parts of the country. A gold medallist from Patna University, he retired from Department of Sociology, Panjab University, Chandigarh in 2002, where he had been teaching since 1978. He was not just an academic as he has been relating himself with people's movements all over the country. His contribution to the understanding of land reforms in India after five decades of the land reforms law in various states in India is the first of its kind and has vividly described the fallacy in the conceptualisation of land reform legislations and inactive implementation of the laws across the country.

A prolific writer he has authored a number of outstanding books, research papers, project report etc.
