Buddhadeb Guha, one of the most eminent writers of Bengali literature, was born on June 29, 1936 in Calcutta. One of the notable things about his novels is that they are quite urbane in nature and portrait the modern upper-middle class families. Such representation of characters makes him popular within a short span of his literary career. Besides, his novels are marked by a sense of abstractness and are romantic at the same time. Apart from this, the urge of exploration is also evident in his novels that showcased some of the greatest renditions of travel. His well-known works are ‘Madhukari’, ‘Mohorra’, ‘Babli’, ‘Aborohi’, ‘Anwesh’, ‘Adbhut Lok’, ‘Boi Melate’, ‘Teen Nombor’, ‘Saptam Ripu’, ‘Jomduar’, ‘Rivu’, etc. He received Ananda Puraskar, Shiromani Puraskar and Sharat Puraskar. He died on August 29, 2021.
