I, Pabitra Sarkar, am a person with various interests and identities: those of a linguist, literary critic, actor and theatre person, writer for children, man associated with various aspects of performed culture, grammarian, and also, in a very humble way, a singer of Rabindra Sangeet (I have three CDs out so far).
From 1969 to 1975 I was in the United States on a Fulbirght
Scholarship, which enabled me to do an M.A. and Ph. D. in
linguistics at the University of Chicago (1975).
