Sukumar Ray
"(1887-1923) was a Bengali nonsense poet, story writer and playwright. He is often compared to Lewis Caroll. His works such as the collection of poems "Aboltabol" ("Gibberish"), novella "HaJaBaRaLa", short story collection "Pagla Dashu" ("Crazy Dashu") and play "Chalachittachanchari" are considered nonsense masterpieces of the stature of Alice in Wonderland and some of the greatest treasures of Bangla liturature. More than 80 years after his death, Ray remains one of the most popular of children's writers in both West Bengal and Bangladesh." quote taken from article on Sukumar at wikipedia.
