Rajshekhar Basu

About this author

Rajshekhar Basu was born on 16 March 1880 in Bamunpara near Kandorsona, British India (now Purba Bardhaman district of West Bengal, India). He was a Bengali Chemist, Author, and lexicographer.

He was an inquisitive child and manifested a knack for science early in life. He was introduced to Bengali literature when he went to Patna to study for the F.A. degree, where he interacted with a number of Bengali speakers. After school, he moved to Calcutta and joined Presidency College, where he completed his BA and MA degrees in chemistry. After graduating he completed a degree in law as well, but only attended court for three days, after which he quit the legal profession for good, and decided to pursue a career in science.

He was chiefly known for his comic and satirical short stories and is considered the greatest Bengali humorist of the 20th century. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1956.
