Dr. Benu Prasad Barua
Biography of A Regional Scholar
by Banani Bably

This is a biography of my father, Dr. Barua. I always wanted to read story books instead of textbooks when I was a little girl. One day I discovered that I can tell my feelings and my surroundings in writing to my friends. When I got married to a Muslim boy, I was disconnected from my family. For almost a decade and a half, I had no contact with my parents, siblings, or relatives. That at was a painful time in my life and in the meantime I heard my sister became depressed and suicidal. My husband helped me to reconnect with my family. To show my father and family that I care about them, I wrote this biography as a symbol of love.

"I am delighted to know about the preparation of a compilation of the works of Professor Benu Prasad Barua to celebrate his contribution to education. It is expected to be a useful reference for the students of Political Science, and they will find selected works of Professor Barua’s works in this volume, along with details on the publications."
