Sanjit ‘Bunker’ Roy was born in Burnpur Bengal, present-day West Bengal in 1945. His nickname “Bunker” comes from the Bengali habit of rhyming siblings’ names; his brother’s name was “Shanker.” Roy is proud to be a Bengali. Bengalis, he says, have a reputation for being forward-looking, for being great thinkers and talkers, for being emotional, and for loving music and plays.

He is an Indian social activist and educator. He went to the Doon School from 1956 to 1962 and attended St. Stephen’s College, Delhi from 1962 to 1967. He earned his master’s degree in English.
