I am a critic, essayist, editor, translator, teacher and organizer. I was born at Kamarkhali in the district of Faridpur, Bangladesh in 1964. I graduated with honors and completed my masters in English from Rajshahi University, Bangladesh. Since January 1990, I had taught English literature at tertiary and college levels for more than twenty years. Earlier I was Associate Professor at Western College, and Cambrian College, Dhaka, Adjunct Faculty at Darul Ihsan University and lecturer at Birshrestha Munshi Abdur Rouf Rifles College, Dhaka, Cantonment Public School and College, Savar, Kamarkhali Munshi Abdur Rouf Degree College, Faridpur, Bangladesh.

My fields of interest are fiction and education. 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 from Bengali into English and vice versa.

I am now working 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 2012-3. 

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.
