Kolkata: Indeed an end of an era – the demise of celebrated author Buddhadeb Guha (85) has left us bereft of literary work that made a statement. The author of novels like Aainar Same, Koyelar Kache, Babli, Madhukari and the Rivu series, among others, breathed his last here on Sunday.

One of the most popular fiction writers, Guha had battled Covid for 33 days before he was hospitalised following complaints of breathing trouble. He also caught infections in the urinary tracts.

Guha, a Chartered Accountant by profession carved his own niche with his style of penning down thoughts that have earned him an indelible place in our hearts. Loved being called a rebel, Guha never shied away from speaking his mind even if that drew flak from several quarters.

Born in Kolkata on June 29, 1936, Guha was an alumnus of St Xavier’s College. However, his early days were spent in the erstwhile East Bengal in places like Jaipurhat, Rangpur and Barisal, which were reflected in the Rivu series.

A winner of several awards like Shiromani Puraskar, Sharat Puraskar and Ananda Puraskar, Guha’s singing skills also stood out.

State Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee have expressed their condolences on Guha’s demise.
