Description
About the Author

Born in 14th March, 1940 and brought up in a religious and cultural family atmosphere. His father Bibhuti Bhusan Chakrabarti was a headmaster whose mission was man-making. His mother Chapala Devi was a kind-hearted woman who loved and helped the poor neighbours silently. After finishing his school education from Bally Jora-Aswatthatala Vidyalaya, Sri Chakrabarti was admitted to BA. (Hons.) and M.A. Degree in Philosophy from the Presidency College and also Ph.D. Degree from Calcutta University. As a mark of recognition of his academic achievements, he was a awarded scholarship, Ramtanu Lahiri Gold Medal and Sri Aurobindo Silver Medal. He started his career as a lecturer at R.P.M. College, Uttarpara and retired from Jadavpur University as Professor after rendering 33 years of service. In between he served Vidyasagar University, Rabindra Bharati University, Calcutta University, Acharya B.N. Seal College and Lalbaba College in some capacity or other. At present he is engaged in teaching at Kalyani University and West Bengal State University. He was also invited to deliver a series of lectures on Mystical Approach to Religion at Golpark R.K.M. Institute of Culture. He contributed many articles in different journals and participated in many national and international seminars. He also acted as a Resource Person in all the Universities of West Bengal and in some, outside West Bengal. He has at present five Books to his credit. Two other volumes were being published by his students shortly. He contributed two articles in A Companion to Philosophers, edited by Dr. R.L. Arrington and edited Rabindra Centenary Issue of Presidency College, a prestigious assignment. He was recognized as International Philosopher of the year by IBC, Great Britain. He supervised successfully more than 25 Ph.D. students and more than 20 M. Phil students till date.

Foreword

It is indeed a great pleasure to see that my students make arrangement for publishing my work. No words of praise are enough to express my gratitude and indebtedness to them.

This book is a collection of papers written by me at different periods. These papers are mostly presented in the seminars organized by different universities and colleges. So there is every likelihood that there are repetitions here and there. The wise readers, I believe, will not mind and bear with me ungrudingly.

Sriman Debasish Bhattacharya of Sanskrit Pustak Bhandar extends his helping hand for the timely publication of my book. He deserves to be complimented.

I am thankful to my students for publishing this book.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
