Subir Kumar Sen

Subir Kumar Sen was born in Delhi during a fine Indian midsummer. As a child, he was awestruck by the magnificent red sandstone fort, sprawling gardens, and lofty minarets that surrounded him in the walled city. The archaic bazaars, filled with antique wares, further fueled his imagination and transported him to realms of fantasy. Subir has been interested in poetry since his childhood and wanted to capture everything he went through, everything he saw, and everything he could imagine in his writing. He drew inspiration from the great masters of poetry and began writing in his own small way. A lover of travel and people, Subir holds a degree in English and has also studied Italian. He is a professional Italian language translator and is multilingual, fluent in Hindi and Bengali as well. His work has been featured in publications such as ‘The Voices Project’ and ‘Rebelle Society’. To connect with Subir, he can be found on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
