Jagat Chettri (Born: 23 August 1936, Died: 27th May 1999), M.A., Ph.D., is not only a well-known name in Nepali Literature but his contributions in different pockets of society have made him very dear and popular among the people. He was a multi-faceted personality and involved himself, directly or indirectly, in all affairs of society which are related to the upliftment and betterment of humanity, language, literature, education, culture and all those activities meant for collective interests. He was always active and energetic.
Jagat Chettri's pen has run in almost all the disciplines of literature but his strong fortes are essays, research articles and short stories. There are four collections of his short stories among his nine published books. Nepali Sahitya Ko Sanchhipta Ithias (1978) is one of the most remarkable books to his credit. His latest book is the collection of his one act plays Hamiley Macha Khayaun (1995). Jagat Chettri a self-disciplined person and believed in perfection in every work that he undertook. Professionally he was a teacher and was known mostly as "Jagat Sir".

He is a fiction writer and has a collection of Nepali Short Stories named Jindagika Khandit Anuharharu (2005) to his credit.
Dr. Jagat Chettri, widely known as 'Jagat Sir', was known to me not as my teacher in the formal sense but he was known to me through his writings, his active participation in Nepali Bhasa Movement and through his involvement in various social activities. When I was entrusted with the responsible task of writing a monograph on him by Sahitya Akademi. New Delhi, under Makers of Indian Literature Series, I had a feeling that I would be able to complete this monograph without much difficulties as I had gone through some of his writings in the past. But when I started to write then I felt myself swimming in an ocean. It was not so easy to evaluate a person like Dr. Jagat Chettri who had kept himself busy throughout his life in multifarious activities right from literature to a petty problem of a neighbor.
