Ruma Chakravarti

Ruma Chakravarti has been blogging about Bengali literature for seven years, translating songs, poems and stories. A year after she started, three volumes of Ruma’s translations of Tagore’s work were published at the Kolkata Book Fair in 2013. Reliving Tagore is another popular work. Ruma translates from Bengali to English in order to make more people aware of the rich body of Bengali literature, which remains relatively unknown to English-speaking readers. Growing up in Africa, India and Papua New Guinea, she now calls Australia home.
