Namder, Munshi (19th century) writer, born in Bhupatipur village in Burdwan district, west bengal. Not much is known about his personal life. He wrote a few sketch-type booklets such as Kashite Hay Bhumikampa-Narider Eki Dambha (1863), Dui Satiner Jhagda (1867), Banganye Shiyal Raja (1867), Manohar Fensda (1867), Kalir Bau Had-Jvalani (1868) etc in a mixture of prose and verse. Through these books he tried to portray the absence of principles in both family life and society. The brief dialogues spoken by his various characters are often very funny. [Wakil Ahmed]
