Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's house in Howrah district, West Bengal

Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's house
Around 1 and a half hour’s drive from Kolkata (50 kms), is Deulti in Howrah district of Kolkata. It is a quiet place, and a perfect getaway for a picnic or a day's outing.

Deulti is well-known for Bengali novelist Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's house which is in a nearby village Samtaber.
Just across the house, a short distance away, flows Rupnarayan river.

I fell in love with the beautiful house, not only because it was where Sarat Chandra spent a lot of his time, but also because of the history of the place, and the serene and peaceful surroundings.

Some of his famous works, among many, are -
  • Parinita
  • Devdas
  • Srikanto
  • Choritrohin
  • Bordidi
  • Mej Didi

Nice to be reminded about Sarat Chandra's works. I used to read him during my childhood days. Great to see his house.
