A compilation of selected songs, memoirs, rare photographs, manuscripts, reminiscences of Rajanikanta Sen titled Rajanikanta was recently released at an event held at Starmark, South City Mall. The book has been edited and compiled by singer Riddhi Bandopadhyay.


The event was graced with the presence of Nabaneeta Dev Sen, Ranjan Bandopadhyay, Devajit Bandopadhyay, Debajyoti Mishra, Biplab Dasgupta and others.


Speaking at the occasion, Riddhi Bandopadhyay said “I feel that it is my duty as a singer to make the audience aware of the contribution of eminent personalities like Rajanikanta Sen.  Not many are aware of his contributions. Even the singers sing few songs written by him. But he has done more than that. With this book people will come to know more about him”.

Devajit Bandopadhyay praised Riddhi for her dedication towards a certain goal. “If she decides she will be doing this, she completes it against all odds. I like this trait of her and I am so very proud as her husband”.


This book was released as part of 150th birth anniversary celebrations. A half bust statue of Rajanikanta was inaugurated on his birthday at Hedua Park. This initiative was taken up by Riddhi Bandopadhyay along with help from Kolkata Municipality.
