Kumar Vikram writes poems in English and Hindi. He was recently invited by Sahitya Akademi (the prestigious Indian National Academy of Letters) to read his poems at its headquarters in New Delhi. His poems are known for inverted statements, lateral thinking, continued questioning of his own self and the way the society impinges on it, dramatic situations and sympathy for the marginalised. He consciously tries to be post-colonial in spirit by transcending the post-colonial muse.

Brought up at Muzaffarpur, Bihar, where his father was professor in English at Langat Singh College from where Prof Sinha retired as its Principal, Kumar Vikram is presently working in the Editorial Department (English) of National Book Trust, India- a multi-lingual major publishing house. His publications include 'Short Essays' (collection of Essays) , 'T S Eliot: An Intensive Study of Selected Poems' (Co-author with Prof Arun Kumar Sinha) .
