Story
Tagline
Debarasad Bandyopadhyay (born 1965) is a professor (honoris causa) of Linguistics, La Filológica Por La Causa (USA/MEXICO) and one of the distinguished members and collaborators of INTRADEPARTMENTAL LEXICOGRAPHICAL STUDIO, Saint-Petersburg State University. He is also a faculty member of Linguistic Research Unit, Indian Statistical Institute (Kolkata). He has published more than ten books and 200 articles in journals and magazines on 29 different topics.
Introduction

Debaprasad Bandyopdhyay (b. 1965), Distinguished Member, La Filológica Por La Causa, through his 25 years journey in the realm of institutionalized academics did 28 different types of works, which are someway different from the earlier paradigms or, one might say that those works are not only mere reproductions of his inherited institutionalized cultural capital or a mimicry of a colonially imposed model that leads to intellectual anorexia or rather a type falsification of earlier paradigms.

However, that might be not only a lofty claim but it also hid the fact that all our  information and knowledge are socially accumulated knowledge that was, it is matter of regret, posed as private property through the sign © and the wisdom is rarely available.  Bandyopadhyay’s works and projects are the products of his social milieu.

Bandyopadhyay is a local sub-altern public sphere academician, who avoids the technical intelligentsia (followers of Sahib’s models and they are not committed to the persons who are accommodating surplus work-time to them by performing surplus labour) or inorganic intellectuals and thus fails to be a part of academic tribe and its subsequent socialization process. Of course, that socialization process does not lead to legendary Socratic dialogue.

He is also a political activist though he has not affiliated to any political parties as he is always talking about the corporatization of political parties within the money-sign-based democratic system.  He is a regular participant in TV and radio talk-shows and documentary films, street-corners’ talks and International seminars on socio-political, psychological, linguistic, environmental and economic issues. He also writes editorial columns in newspapers. 

He is also a part of parallel academics as it is found in West Bengal’s Little Magazine Movement, though that was not counted as the part his academic pursuit by his parent institute. His parent institute justifiably does not believe in the domain of parallel academics as this unorganized sector does not directly contribute in the transactions of formal/organized print capitalist eco-enemy paper-publication. Though the dissemination of knowledge is also observed in this space of these parallel academics as all these writings in public sphere simultaneously influence the classroom-discourse and some of them are translated into English, French and Italian.

Not only that, Bandyopadhyay also sought engagement with the people, who, by supplying their surplus labour, are sustaining his livelihood. Bandyopadhyay, a linguist by training and a Ph.D.-holder (1996), a junior lecturer (1999-2011) in an autonomous central  government institute in India, tries his best for those from he has received and is receiving the manifestation of surplus labour by executing some self-funded projects on economic issues in West Bengal, India. Recently he has got a consolation promotion (by default) to the post of  Assistant Professor.

It's a big scam: the fair price shops in WB hospitals. Not only the quality is compromised to maintain the low price, paradoxically enough, the MRP is hiked for concession or discount. It is "Caitra sale"- type of deceiving! What's about the patient, the victim?
