Help Debasish Chakraborty Fight Stage 4 Lung Cancer

Debasish is a bright young software engineer from Serampore, a town near Kolkata. He had been an academically gifted student from his school life and is a proud alumnus of Mahesh Sri Ramkrishna Ashram Vidyalaya and Chatra Nandalal Institution. After that, he became a Physics major and graduated from Serampore College and Calcutta University. Throughout his student life, he was adored by his friends for his humor and jovial nature and admired for his resilience at the same time. After his post-graduation, he joined Tata Consultancy Services in 2011 as a software engineer.  Although facing economic hardships during childhood and adolescence, Debasish gradually turned around his family's fortune as a responsible family member.    

However, in 2016 he became afflicted with Stage 4 Lung Cancer out of the blue. This unexpected turn of events spelled catastrophe in his life and his family as well. He had been continuing treatment ever since.  Since earlier this year doctors had been putting him through very aggressive doses of chemotherapy to counter the cancer.

Debasish has been putting up a very brave face in face of this ordeal. Being the ever cheerful person and a creative soul, he had been chronicling his journey in inimitable prose. However, the treatment over the last two years has exhausted his family's resources. HIs family has slipped into financial hardship once again.  It is of immediate importance that his family can garner the resources for long-term treatment of Debasish.

We, friends of Debasish, hereby appeal to the netizens to help Debasish out in this difficult time. Please contribute whatever amount you can and urge your friends and families to do the same. Let us join hands to save Debasish.

Dear Supporters,

I regret to inform you that Debashish is no more.

He was not able to respond well to the treatment yet we all kept pushing. His chemotherapy had been stopped in August and he was kept on sedatives to avoid the pain. He collapsed yesterday as his cancer took over his health.

The funds raised will be utilized to clear his medical bills. Please pray for his soul to rest in peace. Thank you all for the love and support!

Regards,
Amritesh

Dear Friends and Well-wishers,

A possibly unrelated update. A collection of Debasish’s Bengali writing “এলোমেলো” [Elomelo-“In Haphazard”] in prose and poetry has been published this month the first edition of which has been sold out. A reprint is underway. If anyone wishes to procure a copy, please contact us, to book a copy and the modalities of obtaining a copy.
Debasish Chakraborty এর লেখা "এলোমেলো" বইটার প্রতি পাঠকদের আগ্রহ দেখে লেখক ও প্রকাশক প্রত্যেকেই অভিভূত। এই মুহূর্তে প্রথম সংস্করণের আর কোন সংকলন আমাদের কাছে নেই। কিন্তু চাহিদার কথা মাথায় রেখে আমরা যত তাড়াতাড়ি সম্ভব দ্বিতীয় সংস্করণের পরিকল্পনা করছি।

অনেক ধন্যবাদ। বই পড়ুন , বই পড়ান।

Team Debasish
