Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay was born on 15th September 1876 in Debanandpur village of Hooghly district in a simple poor Brahmin family. He spent his childhood and early life at his maternal uncle’s house in Bhagalpur. When Sarat Chandra was five years old, his father Motilal Chattopadhyay admitted him to Pari Pandit’s Pathshala in Debanandapur.
He studied there for two to three years. Then while in the city of Bhagalpur, his uncle admitted him on a student scholarship in ‘Durgacharan Balak Vidyalaya’. In 1887 he was admitted to the Bhagalpur District School, but his father’s employment there forced them to return to Debanandpur.
As a result, he was forced to leave the school there. And on coming to Bengal he got admission in Hooghly Branch School. But unfortunately he had to drop out of that school due to not being able to pay the school fees. In 1893, Motilal returned to Bhagalpur and admitted him to the Tej Narayan Jubilee Collegiate School. And in 1894 AD he passed the entrance examination in second division and got admission in ‘Tej Narayan Jubilee College’. But he could not appear for the examination as he could not pay the examination fee of that college.

Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay was not just a singer-songwriter, actor or just an aspiring writer. We see him in the society as a social reformer, philanthropist, humanitarian, doctor. Even when he saw the suffering of animals, tears would flow from his eyes. In a male-dominated society, he was more attracted to women than to men.

He was exceptionally hospitable, friendly and conjugal. He was not opulent but rather affable, especially in attire. He could talk a lot at home meetings about writing. Sarat Chandra had always made it his job to treat the ailments of poor people. He would not only give medicine to patients, but also buy food for many.

Who wrote the novel Pather Dabi?
The author evokes a storm of criticism in his scathing writings in the book for emancipation from the shackles of subjugation and the status of women in society and the norms inherent in contemporary Indian religion and social structure. He absolutely despised capitalism. He expects everyone to be treated with respect and justice.
So he wanted to change the traditional social structure. Tried to get rid of the rich-poor divide. He was always in favor of eradicating untouchability and bigotry, which he has beautifully illustrated in this book.
