Saratchandra Chattopadhyay (1876–1938) was born in Devanandapur, an obscure village of Bengal. He spent his early life in penury and did not have much of a formal education. But his love for literature made him take up writing from his early teens and gradually his novels and stories held up a mirror to the turbulence in the Bengali urban society as well as rural hinterland.
Some of his best known novels are Palli Samaj (1916), Charitraheen (1917), Devdas (1917), Nishkriti (1917), Srikanta in four parts (1917, 1918, 1927 and 1933), Griha Daha (1920), Sesh Prasna (1929) and Sesher Parichay published posthumously (1939). He is one of the most translated authors in India and also many of his novels have been made into films multiple times.
