About Me

Abhijit Sengupta was born in 1941 in Calcutta. He graduated in Civil Engineering from Bengal Engineering College, Sibpore in 1964. He worked long in Indian Council of Agricultural Research Institute of Govt. of India and retired from there as Principal Scientist. He had to travel extensively in the forest deltas of lower Sunderbans for surveying many of those islands during the tenure of his service.

In his early boyhood he stated writing passionately. His first short story ‘Prapat’ (the fall) was published in Jugantar Patrika in 1961. He loves to work almost in all literary forms like poem, short story, novel, drama, travelogue, essay etc. Every esteemed literary journal and magazines in the arena of Bengali literature have been publishing his work regularly. Many renowned publishers of Calcutta so far have published numbers of his novel, collection of short stories and poems, drama, juvenile novel and short stories many of which have earned the wide appreciation of the Bengali readers. The travelogue titled ‘Sundarbaner Diary’ based on the intimate and varied experience gathered by me about the man and nature of Sunderban is one of them. Another of my novels titled ‘Jalakallol’ based on the complex conflict between a Scientist aspiring frantically to search the truth and the utter bureaucracy of a Research Institute had also been appreciated by the readers. Another novel of mine titled ‘Eka’(Alone) on the naxalite period of Bengal was awarded the prize by ‘Ityadi Prakashan’ a renowned publisher two decades ago. 

Apart from writing in Bengali he was accustomed in writing children’s novel, short story and poems in English also. Three children’s novels written in English and published by leading publishers of Delhi are in his credit. One of his novel titled ‘The Man of Sunderbans’ published by Children’s Book Trust  was awarded by the National Council of Educational Research and Training, Govt. of India as the best children’s novel written in English and published in India in the year 1987. Another children’s novel by him titled ‘Story of Panchami’ was published by same CBT and also was awarded by them as the second best children’s novel published in 1986.  ‘Rintu and his compass,’ another children’s novel written by him and published by National Book Trust, Govt. of India, will come to market very soon.

Apart from English novels sixteen books of novels, short fictions, poems and drama written in Bengali and published by eminent publishers of Calcutta are in his credit.

He has also a strong passion for drawing, painting and illustrating. One of his scientific fictions for children titled ‘ Nijhum Chander Rahasya’published by an eminent publisher was fully illustrated by the author. His another novel ‘Khoai’ had also been illustrated by him a sample of which has been furnished here along with few of his paintings.
