Subhas Mukhopadhyay, Bengali poet

Subhas Mukhopadhyay (12th February 1919 - 8th July 2003) was one of the most famous 20th century Bengali poets. He started his writing career in the 1940’s and his non-romantic and straightforward approach made a new era in Bengali poetry. Social unrest, political themes, protest by the common people and their hope and buoyancy are the major themes of his poems.

He has received Jnanpith in 1991 and Afro- Asian Lotus Prize in 1974. Padatik (The Foot Soldier), E Bhai (Hey, Brother), Phul Phutuk (Let the Flowers Bloom), Desh Bidesher Rupkotha (Fairy Tales from Home and Abroad) and Kaal Modhumash (Tomorrow is Spring) are his major works.
