Dipak Majumdar

Dipak Majumdar, globe trotter poet and founder of KRITTIBAS magazine ( dipak left in disgust when Sunil Gangopadhyay took over the control of the magazine ). In September 1964 when the Hungryalist poets and writers were arrested and prosecuted, he prepared a protest letter addressed to West Bengal government to be signed by writers of the day. He visited most of the established Bengali writers and poets for the purpose but to his utter surprise and anger, none was ready to sign that letter.
