Anjan Chakraborty had graduated with English Honours from Jadavpur University. He was greatly influenced by his parents and started writing from boyhood. In J.U., he met Tapobroto Ghosh who opened up a magic palace before him where Rabindranath resides and writes.

Influenced by him, Anjan showed his modest yet deep-rooted interest in criticism on Tagore. His article ‘Amare Aral Koria Darao’ published in Anustup (Rabindra Sankha 2010) is an attempt to explore the influence of Kadambari Devi in Tagore's life and works, specially in his songs which tend towards a total extinction of self and idolisation of Kadambari, the great lady. His book on Tagore's novel ‘Malancha’ is published in July 2010 (Rabindranather Malancha : Mrityur Chhaya Jibaner Dabi) which includes interesting topics like identification of Neeraja, the heroine of the novel with Kadambari and influence of film medium on the prose style of Tagore in the novel ‘Malancha’. That influence of Mrinalini Devi on Tagore also contributed to his creative process is elaborately discussed in the article ‘Sankhipto O Purno Rabijibaner Khonje’ published in Kanika Sahitya, August 2010.

He is at present working on a full-fledged book on Tagore's ‘Chitra’, exploring the influence of ‘Jeevandebata’ as well as the deep aesthetic perceptions of Tagore gathered in this significant creation. He is also working on Christopher Candwell's ‘Illusion and Reality’. His article ‘Eso Eso Priye’ on Tagore's deep biographical influence in the novel ‘Noukadubi’ will be published in ‘Prabandhik’ where he wrote earlier on the strange brother and sister relationship in ‘Jogajog’ under the heading ‘Je Gaan Kane Jay Na Shona’. His article ‘Gopon Hingsa Kapot Ratri Chhaye’ on the dark short stories of Tagore will be published in ‘Uttaran’ and ‘Sthir Jenechhilem Peyechhi Tomake’, a study on Mrinalini Devi will be published in ‘Mukhomukhi’. His another article on the impact of contemporary politics on Tagore's short stories will be published under the heading ‘Ami Mantra Peyechhi Kintu Dite Janina’.

First published work ‘Krishna Gahabhar Theke Bolchhi’ (2000) - a collection of poems reviewed by Bibhas Roy Choudhury in ‘Desh’ (November 2004). ‘Dagdha Padabali’, next published book of poems is an elegy on his father's death. He showed skill in prose too which is reflected in his novel ‘Megh Jakhan Chhad’ published in 2005. Dr.Arun Kumar Basu reviewed it with great affection in ‘Bangla Boi’ (December 2006) which is the monthly journal of Bangla Academy. It is influenced by a friend who is still fighting an uneven struggle against a hard and cruel life like someone in a Greek tragedy. Another significant poetical work of Anjan is ‘Shiuli Fota Furolo’ published in September 2010, an elegy on his mother's demise. His other poetical works are ‘Tini O Ami’, ‘Janma Janmantar’, ‘Rajkahini’ (a modern adoptation of Rakta Karabi), ‘Santraser Barodin’. His venture with short story comes out with colourful success in ‘Nemechhilo Banagandha’ - his collection of short stories published by Tehaai at Kolkata Book Fair 2010.

His collection of essays on Tagore ‘Kshamo He Mamo Dinata’ published by Bhairabi consists of his essays and lectures in different seminars. It covers texts as different as ‘Say’, ‘Galposalpo’, ‘Jogajog’, ‘Geetanjali’, ‘Chaturanga’, ‘Char Adhyay’, ‘Noukadubi’, ‘Chitrangada’ and ‘Shyama’. Most of these articles are unique for their studies on the basis of Tagore's life.

His another unique contribution to the genre of biographical interpretation is ‘Shesher Kobitar Shobhonlal’ where he established Shobhonlal as the true representative of Rabindranath. He gave a blow to the popular Amit-Labanya equation so highly pampered by our literary circle.

Apart from these, his several research papers got published in UGC sponsored journals which include ‘Frankensteine - A study on conflict between human intelligence and artificial intelligence’, ‘Let them have their say’, ‘Tagore the Outcast’. His study on Tagore's drama ‘Baikunther Khata’ is published in global media journal of Calcutta University under the name of ‘Beware of Imposters’.

His intense study of Tagore's feeling of pangs of love is compiled in ‘Heri Ahoraho Tomari Biraho’ which goes through the entire poetic works of Tagore. It is dedicated to Late Tagore expert Dr.Arun Kumar Basu who inspired the author for this unique research. This book has already drawn attention of Tagore critics.
