About the author

Born in Calcutta, Avik Chanda graduated from Presidency College and completed his education at the Delhi School of Economics. Following a brief stint in media, he has pursued a career in management consulting over the last ten years, during which time he has also been moonlighting as a freelance journalist, painter and more recently, a poet, writing in both English and his native Bengali.

After an excursion into writing poetry during his college days, and a subsequent hiatus that lasted the greater part of a decade, Avik took up poetry again, particularly during the years he spent in Europe and in the UK. His work has been published in a number of journals, and Footnotes is his first collection inb English.
