Dinesh Chandra Chattopadhyay (27 January 1917–10 February 1995) can be best described as a fighter and that spirit found reflection in his works as well. He was a part of the Indian independence movement in his youth, following which he studied the sciences, and also started his professional journey as a publisher. As a litterateur he gained recognition in 1962. His longstanding dream of publishing good literature turned into a reality in the late ’60s. The Kishore Bharati magazine was published for the first time in 1968, with him as the editor. The magazine became a platform for a new kind of writing which was very well-received by the readers. He received the National Award in 1962 and the Vidyasagar Award in 1987, two of the most prestigious awards in India.
Besides Duronto Eegawl (1981) , Chattopadhyay is also remembered today for other important works like Oder Bnachte Dao (2015), Bigyan’er Duhswapno (1962), Neel Ghurni (1962), Pratham Purush (2000), and Bhaba Samagra (2002).
