Article

Sankha Ghosh has been a major figure in Bengali poetry since the 1950s. The son of Manindra Kumar and Amalabala Ghosh, he was born in Chandpur, in present-day Bangladesh, the family’s ancestral home district being Barisal. Manindra Kumar was an eminent school headmaster and an ardent admirer of Tagore. Ghosh attended school in Chandraprabha Vidyapith in Paksi, Pabna. The ambience of this school exerted a strong influence on his early development. He was later educated at the Presidency College and at the University of Calcutta. He taught literature at several universities prior to his retirement from Jadavpur University as Professor of Bengali.
