Surajit Das
1935 - 25. 01. 2017
Surajit Das was born in Nilphamari, in undivided India, now in Bangladesh, in 1935.
He grew up in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal. During his teens he became famous as a body builder, when he was declared
'
Mr.Hercules of India' in 1952.

Surajit Das was one of the Contemporary Masters in Indian Sculpture.
A First Class Graduate from the Govt Arts College Kolkata, 1959. He started his life as an artist with the
Geological Survey of India (GSI).
His distinguished carrier had to his credit, some of the turning points in the History of Indian Sculpture. He was
the first to make
Life size Dinosaurs for GSI at Hyderabad and later on for the Museum of Natural History in
New Delhi. These were executed in the year 1970, much before the craze for Dinosaurs caused by Steven
Spielberg's movie 'The Jurrassic Park'. The use of Fibre Glass in making the Dinosaurs is also perhaps the first
application of this medium in Out door Sculpture in India, on such a gigantic scale.
He was also a member of the
Calcutta Painters group.

He breathed his last on 25th January 2017, at his Kolkata residence after prolonged illness.
This page is a tribute to the
Indian Master Surajit Das by Milan Sengupta , towards his Guru of Sculpture.
