Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay is one of the most talented original writers to have emerged in the Bengali literary scene in recent times. Her personal life is as romantic as her stories. Sangeeta lost her parents at a tender age and was brought up by her maternal uncle. Her first prose writing and her first novel Sankhini was written in self-imposed exile. She lived a solitary life in Santiniketan for a year doing nothing but writing and her first novel took shape in the form of Sankhini. Those who have read Sankhini will know how powerful, frank and open her writing is. It had created a huge stir when it was being published as a serialised novel in the Bengali magazine Desh .
