  1. Hello Subhadeep,
    Would you please give me your email?
    I like to contact you as I have a lot of interests in Vedic literature.


  2. I think all the VEDIC BRAHMINs and the ARANYAKAs should be translated and published in BENGALI as the Bengalees can have an opportunity to go through these ancient books.

  3. Hello,
    Today (Saturday, 28 April 2012) I have visited your home at Chandannagar. Now I can remember that long ago once I had visited your home.
    However, today I have met your brother Mr. Ayan Mukherjee who told me that you were in Hyderabad.

    I am eager to contact you as I am very interested in Sanskrit literature (although I do not know Sanskrit well). I also want the entire Vedic literature translated into Bengali as the Bengalees can access those.
    Would you please give me your email address?


    1. Dear Booklover,

      Thank you for the comments and sorry for the late response. My email is: subhodeep.mukhopadhyay@gmail.com

      I am glad to know of your interest in Vedic literature. But again I am not an expert in Sanskrit - mota muti bujhi.

      As far as books are concerned, there are quite a few books in Bengali, but most of them are out of print. But there are places where we can get some old books in Bengalis written in 1800 to 1900 - eksho dersho bochor agey rachita shob boi, jokhon lokey ey shob niye riti moto chorcha korto. Aaj kaal Mission ba Advaita Ashram-er baire ey shob niye keu chorcha kore bole to shuni ni.

      Vedic literature is huge - but we can discuss over mail. And finally, are you a resident of Chandannagar?

      Email-ey kotha hobey.

      Thank You
      Subhodeep Mukhopadhyay
