Shyamadas Mallick was born in British India, during the 1940s. He is a widely
travelled person, having visited places both inside and outside India. All his
writings, as is the present one, originate from his experiences.
He is the author of many published research
papers relating to administrative innovations and reforms. He writes both, in English and in vernacular
languages. The author believes that the zeitgeist does not necessarily
contradict modern values and expects all generations to leave their impressions
for the next generation.
A lover of rural India, he frequently escapes to
rural areas, leaving Kolkata behind, to interact with the people in villages.
Besides two books, many of his travelogues have been published in various
magazines. He is married and has a daughter and a son.
