kolkata, India ( June 27, 2012 - The time has come for many a writer in Kolkata to acknowledge the talent of a person whose work has been hovering for about half a century in the literary world from the far land of Tripura. This person shares the same legendary background as our very own S.D.Burman and hails from the Tripura Royal Family. He has over ten books under his authoring and has been awarded the prestigious "Sachin Samman" by the Government of Tripura for his famous book on S.D.Burman- "Sachin Kartar Ganer Bhuban". This well acclaimed writer is none other than Khagesh Dev Burman.

After doing his M.A. from Calcutta University in Political Science, he joined the Indian Revenue Service and retired while he was holding the rank of Commissioner of Income Tax. Besides his academic career, he was always surrounded by a literary and cultural environment from his childhood. The Tripura Royal Family is not only known to patronize different cultural art forms but they are also dedicated artists themselves and are known to possess talent in various types of arts.
The Tripuree blood of artistic tendencies emerged in young Khagesh Dev Burman too. His short stories and poems started to be published in many magazines from the mere age of 15. Through his teenage days, he had gained a reputation in the Tripuree literature community as an emerging writer. In the year 1962, at the beginning phases of his youth, he was able to converge all the Tripuree poets on one platform and became the editor and published their collection of poems- "Prantik".
Though, his writing compulsions had erupted a few times, but bureaucratic pressures in his working area had mostly suppressed his urge for writing. After he retired, he engaged himself again in the dream world of literature and almost, with a lone hand, was able to publish one bi-weekly magazine, called "Prantik Sahitya Patra". Through this magazine mainly, he was able to reach the readers across West Bengal, and especially gained respect as a writer in Kolkata.
Among his other more famous books, "Ganer Rajputra Rahul Dev Burman", "Tripuraye Annaya Rabindra Nath", "Rajnandini", "Santan", "Sandhey Belar Pratham Dupur", "Nasta Samay" are to name a few.
