About this author

Dakshinaranjan Mitra Majumdar was born on 15 April 1877. He was an Indian writer in Bengali of fairy tales and children’s literature. He was born at Ulail in the Dhaka district of Bengal province in British India (now Dhaka District of Bangladesh).

He lost his mother when he was nine, and was brought up by his paternal aunt, Rajlakkhi Devi, in Mymensingh. He listened to fairytales told by his mother as well as his aunt, in his introduction to Thakurmar Jhuli.

At the age of twenty-one, he moved to Murshidabad with his father. Education was not his strong suit, he had to change schools multiple times. However, his father’s collection of books was a comfort to him. In Murshidabad, he began to write in different journals, including the Sahitya Parisat Patrika and Pradip. At 25, he published a collection of poems called Utthan (Ascent). On completing his F.A. degree, he returned to Mymensingh and took over the task of overseeing his aunt’s zamindari.
