Arnab Nandy

Born in Konnagar, a Kolkata suburb, Arnab first got published in 2004 in The Statesman Voices, a school students’ supplement. He has since written for Hindustan Times, The Telegraph and several other publications including the Bengali women’s magazine Sananda. Arnab is now a journalist with The Telegraph, where he primarily edits news stories and sometimes writes on travel.


Arnab weaves his story with a strong Kolkata connection, where the reader wishes to believe that the lost painting is here, in Kolkata, very near his/her own place, where s/he hangs around, amidst the very reality of their day-to-day dwelling. And that is the beauty of the book, especially when the reader happens to be from Kolkata.
