Rohit chakraborty
Rohit Chakraborty was born in Guwahati in November 1995. He attended Garden High School, Kolkata, from 2004 to 2014. He has been writing since the age of eight. As a schoolchild, the terrace of his house, the corner seat of the school library and the last bench in History classes were his favourite writing places. The Magic Tree House series catalysed his love for the written word and the craft as a child. The Mug of Melancholy is the first in a series of five novels in which Chakraborty has decided to meticulously narrate the story of Bhuvan Chauhan and the Andrunains. The idea for the novels was conceived in 2008 and stemmed out of a yearning for a personal literary escapism in a nonsensical world populated with invented creatures and situations yet allusive to the contemporary and the historical. Following two years of creating notes, plot outlines, drawings, and early drafts, Chakraborty began writing The Mug of Melancholy in December 2010, long-hand, allowing only a friend and his English teacher to read passages from a notebook. Upon persuasion from his English teacher, he decided to submit his manuscript to literary agencies for consideration. Rohit Chakraborty lives in Kolkata and is presently studying English Literature at Jadavpur University. For further information visit:
