Biography

Deepankar was raised in the small town of Rourkela, in Orissa, India. A voracious reader from childhood, he had read most of the novels that the public libraries in town had to offer, while still in school. He did his Chemical Engineering from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IITR) and in those four years developed a taste for reading literary fiction.

Deepankar completed his management studies from IIM Calcutta (IIMC), one of the best management schools in India and the world. Those two years made an indelible impression on his character which resulted in his first novel "Love Lost" which is unpublished. He has been writing poetry since his childhood but only in the past couple of years has he discovered a passion for writing novels, short-stories and plays.

Deepankar is married and lives in Bangalore, India. His leisure is unequally devoted to family, books, music and movies.
