She was born in Calcutta and educated at Calcutta and Oxford. Though she has now lived in Britain for half a century, she has maintained close links with the literary life of her native Bengal. She writes in both Bengali and English, and in a diversity of genres: poetry, fiction, drama, critical essays, literary translation, and research-based scholarly books. She writes original poetry in two languages, has made significant contributions to Tagore research, and has translated the poetry of Tagore and of the post-Tagore poet Buddhadeva Bose. Her plays have been performed in both Britain and India, and her play Night’s Sunlight, translated by herself from the original Bengali, has been taught in this country at university level. She has received many literary awards, participated in poetry and translation workshops, and given lectures, poetry readings, and papers in arts and academic venues across the world. http://www.ruposhibangla.co.uk/
