Sanjib Chattopadhyay (Bengali: সঞ্জীব চট্ট্যোপাধ্যায়; born 24 october 1936[1] in Kolkata, India) is an Indian Bengali novelist and writer of short stories. His style is characterized by use of short satirical sentences mixed with very lively language. The subjects of his fiction are mostly families living in Calcutta city. Within the confines of these homes, he challenges the moral values of the fast-changing middle class of the city. Chattopadhyay frequently uses old men as his protagonists. These aged characters create the spiritual and philosophical edge found in his novels Lotakambal (The Vessel and Quilt) and Shakha Prasakha (Branches). Arguably the most famous of his creations is Lotakambal. His most famous novella Swet Patharer Table (The Ivory Table) is an example of his characteristic style of story-telling which mixes tension, dilemma, curiosity, pity, humor, and satire. He has written fiction for children and continues to write for magazines and newspapers. Chattopdhyay’s current writing is related to Ramkrishna Paramhansa Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda.
