Personal life and education
Goswami was born in Ratandia, Faridpur, in Bengal (then part of British India, now Bangladesh), in 1926. His father, Parimal Goswami, was a popular Bengali writer, newspaper editor and photographer. Goswami's maternal grandfather was the Bengali poet Jatindra Nath Bagchi and his uncle, Jnanendra Nath Bagchi, wrote for several Bengali magazines. Thus, Goswami grew up in a literary atmosphere. His family settled in Kolkata in 1937 and he graduated from Calcutta University in 1948.
Goswami worked in various organizations before taking a job with the Anandabazar Patrika newspaper. He was a journalist from 1972-1986. His use of humor is evident in such works as Kittu Lahiri & Bagha Kaka, Goenda De & Goenda Daa, Jeebram, Tetul Mama, and Maharaja Singh.
Goswami died on 14 March 2012 in a hospice in Kolkata after a long battle with prostate cancer.
