Banibrata Chakraborty was born on 3rd September 1947, a momentous year for the country. His father, Priti Kumar Chakraborty belonged to a prestigious aristocratic family of Badur Bagan Kolkata. Even though the author spent his childhood days in his mother Ilarani Chakraborty’s paternal home in Cuttack, his family’s aristocratic traditions left a significant impression on him.

Amar Ja Ache, Ranir Kache Panja, Amra Bodle Jai, Bohubrihi, Jotodin Aakash Thakbe, Bitoto Bitongso, Oporup Sobuj Alo, etc. are names of some of his commendable works.
