Sarat Chandra Chattopadhay: In search of a name through rural Bengal.

Calcutta is the city of joy and the attractions it holds are many. Written below is the fascinating experience of one of our students, when he goes in search of a name and an identity.

A name is your very identity. And yet, you do not have the power to choose it and most often do not have the power either to change it. Does a name really matter? Are our destinies shaped in any measure by the name we are given? Do we imbibe anything of those who we are named after? If yes, do we also imbibe something of those, who we were named after, were named after in the first place? I do not know and let’s admit it, neither do you. What I do know however is that, for long now, I have been doused by curiosity to know more about this man, Sarat Chandra Chattopadhay.

And so it was almost inevitable that I would one day visit this place.
