HEMENDRA KUMAR ROY

Hemendrakumar Roy (1888-April 18, 1963) was a Bengali writer noted for his contribution to the early development of the genre of children's literature in the language. He is also the translator of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám into Bengali.
Son of Radhikaprasad Roy, Hemendrakumar Roy was born in Kolkata in 1888. Roy inherited a part of his artistic talent from his father who was a more than competent player of the esraj (a string instrument) and regularly gave performance at the famed Star Theatre in North Kolkata. His first published work was a short-story Amar Kahini that appeared in Basudha in 1903. In 1916, he joined the circle of writers that published in the Bharati journal edited by Sourindramohan Mukherjee and Manilal Ganguly.
In 1925, Hemendrakumar Ray became the editor of Nachghar. Apart from this journal, he helped edit other literary magazines including Rongmoshal. During the next few decades, Hemendrakumar Ray wrote over 80 books for children. He was monumental in contributing a body of detective, horror, and science-fiction work that would form a substantial portion of the early literature for children in Bengali. In 1930, he wrote his first detective story which was published in Mouchak. He is best remembered as the creator of Bimal-Kumar, the adventurer duo and Jayanta-Manik the detective duo. It was Bimal-Kumar's adventure story 'Jokher Dhan', for which he is famous in Bengali literature for children.
