Early life and education

Khalid Alvi received his early education in his home town Chandpur, Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh and then he joined the University of Delhi as a Research Scholar. During his stay at University of Delhi as a research scholar he was invited to deliver a series of lecture on Indian literature by Peshawar University, Oriental Institute Tashkent and some other Organisations in various parts of the world.


After Alvi finished his MPhil, he was offered an assistant professorship at the college of Delhi University.


One of Alvi's books, Aangarey, has been the subject of controversy. The book is a collection of Urdu short stories, first published in the 1930s, and then banned in 1933. Alvi reissued the book in 1993, but, when doing so, had to excise major portions of it.
