Sahitya Akademi award winner Nabarun Bhattacharya died here today after a protracted illness. He was 66 and suffering from cancer.

Born on June 23,1948, Bhattacharya was committed to a revolutionary and radical aesthetics.

He is the only child of late actor Bijon Bhattacharya and writer Mahashweta Devi.

He is known most for his anarchic novel, Herbert (1993), which won him the Sahitya Akademi Award, and adapted into a film of the same name in 2005, by Suman Mukhopadhyay.

Besides fiction, he also wrote poetry, of which 'Ei Mrityu Upotyoka Aaamaar Desh Na' (This Valley of Death Is Not My Country) is an example.

His major works included Kaangaal Maalshaat, Herbert, Lubdhak, Ei Mrityu Upotyoka Aamaar Desh Na, Halaljhanda o Onyanyo, Mahajaaner Aayna, Fyaturur Kumbhipak, Raater Circus and Anarir Naarigyan.

A pall of gloom descended in the cultural fraternity hearing the demise of Bhattacharya. UNI ADG KK NNNN
