2377/ 2378 Sealdah – New Jalpaiguri (ER Sealdah division)
Subhash Mukhopadhyay (1919 – 2003) was one of the foremost Bengali poets of the 20th century. He was born in Krishnanagar, a town in Nadia district. In 1940, while still a student, he published his first volume of poetry Padatik (The Foot-Soldier). Many critics regard
this book as a milestone in the development of modern Bengali poetry. In his poetry, Subhash grappled with the massive upheavals of that era which ruptured Bengali society from top to bottom. The 1940s were marked by world war, famine, partition, communal riots and mass emigration in Bengal. Subhash's writings broke away from the traditional moorings of the establishment poets, and instead addressed the despair and disillusion felt by the common people.
