Jibanananda Das (1899 - 1954)

  • About
  • Jibanananda Das (1899–1954) was born and raised in rural Barisal. He taught English in Calcutta, Delhi and Barisal. Periods of unemployment, and an unfulfilling marriage, made for an uneasy life. He is now magically popular in his native land, second only to Tagore himself.
