Before the current offering of three novellas had come another such triplet called A Triptych. Dipanjan Rai Chaudhuri lives in Kolkata with his wife. They have a son and a daughter and three grandchildren. As pains and aches start constricting his activities he puts more time into his project of a contemporary Bangla novel in three parts, the first of which has recently been published.
