Narayan Sanyal dead

KOLKATA, FEB. 7. Narayan Sanyal, an eminent representative of Bengal's neo-literature era, passed away today. He was 82.

His family sources said the writer breathed his last at his residence here following a massive cardiac arrest.

He is survived by his wife, a daughter and a son.

Born on April 26, 1924 in Kolkata, Mr. Sanyal did his graduation in science in 1944 and earned a civil engineering degree from Shibpur BE College in 1948.

Interestingly, the man, who weaved magic with his pen and earned tremendous acclaim, was actually a professional of building blocks.

He started his career as a Building Engineer of the ``Public Works Department'' under the State Government and finally joined the ``National Buildings Organisation''.

He retired in 1982 as a Liaison Officer and was made a Fellow of the ``Institute of Engineers'' and the ``Association of Engineers'' in 1976.

Mr. Sanyal wrote about 120 books of varied tastes. His first book Muskil Asan (Drama) was published in 1954. — UNI
