Bhakti Madhab Was a man of literature. As far I know he was not so active in mass organisation, while he was in service. It was in last 18 years after his retirement he became center of attraction. He actually feel up the space vacated by the death of personalities like Premendra Nath Gosami And Debabrata Dutta. Beside cultural activities I found him as Principal in charge of Satya Ranjan College at Kalain, where I worked as lecturer from 1993 to 1998. It was his love for the land and people deterred him from going back to his birth place at Bengal.
