Remembering Nabaneeta Dev Sen: Acclaimed writer, inimitable raconteur — and friend whose happiness was infectious
I shall always think of Nabaneeta Dev Sen in a red sari, with a huge bindi on her forehead, and the joy that came to her so naturally in sunshine or in rain, and which she shared with us so generously. I like to think of her on a cloud somewhere with all our old friends, continuing to do this: Sajni Mukherji writes.
Noted writer and academic, Nabaneeta Dev Sen, passed away at her Kolkata residence at the age of 81 on Thursday evening. The writer had been suffering from cancer.
