Every time I meet new people or give my introduction, the first question I encounter is “What is the meaning of my name?” So, today I am answering this publicly and from next time anyone would like to know the meaning of my name I will simply tag that person in the comments.

1. The meaning of the word Kallol is “Sound of waves.”

2. The symbolic meaning of my name is “New wave” or “New Revolution.”

3. “Kallol Movement” – In between the year, 1923 to 1935 The first modernism movement in Bengali literature took place. Some very young and now-legendary writers like Premendra Mitra, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Buddhadeb Basu etc collaborated to push back humanist literature of Tagore and bring progressive, socio-political, leftist literature which was highly inspired by the theories of Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx. And later this movement turned out to be one of the most important and influential literary movements in the history of Bengali literature.

That’s it. For more details “Google”. And yes, My name defines me and I am proud of my name.
