About this author
Kamal Chakrabarty was born in 1946, He is a magician in one word – simultaneously a poet, writer, editor, compiler, community developer, and an unmistakable dreamer of the impossible.
He is one charismatic visionary, who, as a poet, novelist, and popular prose writer, could simultaneously straddle the mainstream Kolkata-centric Bangla literary circles and the lesser-known niches of alternative literature.
His poetry brought to life the experiences of a small town. In its language, his poetry voiced the richly layered language fabric of tribal Singbhum. “TataBaba”, one of his early poems, is a popular Adivasi folk song in Singbhum today. At the same time, his poetry has a magical, fantastic dreamlike urbanity about it.
