About the author

Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya

Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya (1894-1950), a major novelist from Bengal, is one of our greatest writers. His Pather Panchali (‘Song of the Road’) has been immortalized through Satyajit Ray's film. Aranyak, composed between 1937-39, was based on Bibhutibhushan’s long and arduous years in northern Bihar, where he came into contact with a part of the world that, even now, remains unknown to most of us.
