A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Essayist. Memoirs, Personal Essays, Criticisms. Kolkata: Shabdayaan & Boighar-Shantiniketan. February 2023. ISBN 9789358137101. INR 400 (Paperback).
To "essay" means to "try". I tried to do things my way which I believed is the artist's way. Hence the essayist in the title not only depicts the content of the book as essays but also me as a trier. These essays are either about my early days written later or delivered as lectures/ talks or written during my early days about the things I was involved in then. They give an idea about my growth and development as an artist/ writer and the struggles that I have had in the journey of my creative life.
