Ami Anupam (I, Anupam) was first published in Bengali in the Sharadiya Ananda Bazaar in 1976. It was the first novel on the Naxal Movement in West Bengal. It came out as a book in 1978. Some prominent intellectuals of West Bengal had played a strange two-faced role in this political movement. They encouraged and led the youth, who put their lives at stake and fought for the cause. However, most of these intellectual leaders failed to take responsibility later on when they were needed the most. Ami Anupam is about one such betrayal. The novel is a sharp depiction of those turbulent times.
