I am a writer, curator and organizer based in Toronto. I have twenty nine books to my credit. My Bengali book on Canadian literature, published in 2019, was applauded hugely.
I was born in Bangladesh in 1964 and completed my Bachelor's with honors and Master's in English from Rajshahi University, Bangladesh. Since January 1990, I had taught English literature at tertiary and college levels for more than twenty years.
For long I have involved students in intercultural dialogues across the world. I led a team in Mondialogo School Contest 2005-2006 conducted by UNESCO and became the leader-teacher of one of the 50 finalist teams and attended the Rome Symposium. In 2007, I attended Mondialogo Engineering Symposium, Mumbai. Since 2007, I have worked as an Expert for Agenda21Now Internet Conference, conducted by some European Schools.
Since 1994, I have been writing enormously on different aspects, particularly on literature, education and socio-cultural activities. Moreover, I have taken some initiatives to translate literary pieces written in Bengali into English and vice versa. I have worked as the Executive Director of Bengali Literary Resource Centre (BLRC), a non-profit in Canada. Earlier I had worked for Bangladesh Literary Resource Centre (BLRC), Dhaka, since its inception in 2005. I was also associated with BRAC, the largest non profit of the world, as an editor during 2012-2013.
I participated in Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) in 2020 and 2022 and led teams of Bengali writers.
I am married to Nilima Datta and a proud father of a daughter Brotee Das Datta. Since August 2013, we have been living in Toronto, Canada.
