Kanhaiyalal Sethia, born on September 11, 1919 in Sujangarh, Rajasthan, is one of the most popular Rajasthani poets. He is also a social activist. Kanhaiyalal explores a wide range of themes and issues in his poetry, but the central thread that marks it is his patriotic fervor for Rajasthan. His poems reflect the silent changes taking place in Rajasthani rural life, with some poems full of religious and spiritual overtones. His first collection Ramaniyai ra soratha, was written in the traditional style of didactic poetry rich in images and similes. His other books of poems are Minjhara, Kum kum, Lilatamsa, Dhara kuncam dhara majalam, Mayada ro helo, Sabada, Satavani, Aghori kala. His book of poetic prose is Gala-gachiya.

Kanhaiyalal Sethia received the Sahitya Akademi award for the poem Lilatamsa. He has also won Jnanapitha Moortidevi Award in 1986, Surajmal Misrana Sekhar Award in 1987.

The Library of Congress Office has acquired twenty-six works by him and one work on him.
