Prafulla Roy (born September 11, 1934) is a West Bengali author. He had to struggle hard to set foot in a new land. He traveled all over the country to experience the struggles of the people. And for this purpose he lived for some time among the indigenous people of Nagaland, who were the untouchables of Bihar and the rootless people of the mainland of the Andamans. Most of which later appeared flawlessly in his writings.
