Probal Mazumdar works in an IT company. He is an engineer by societal pressure, guitarist by love at first sound, singer by accident, poet by soul, writer by passion, a world class badminton player in childhood dreams, rebel by day, recluse by night, a samosa in a family of laddoos, a Jughead at the dining table, a shameless and congenital dreamer.
Oh! An arsonist too – when his wife is not around, sets his own house on fire with his little son.
He won the FIRST prize in the All India Poetry Competition, 2014, conducted by PSI (Poetry Society of India).
His other poems have risen too from cold storage into literary journals like Indian Literature (Sahitya Akademi), Wasafiri (U.K.), Acumen (U.K.), Chandrabhaga Literary Journal (Editor Jayanta Mahapatra), Dhauli Review, among others.
He writes short stories too. “Key To My Soul” is his debut novel.
