Debasish Biswas, son of Late Jitendra Nath Biswas & Smt. Bimala Biswas, was born in Guwahati, Assam in a middle class family. He is second among four brothers and one sister. His father worked in the Department of Post & Telegraph (P&T) in Assam Circles. Being in a transferable job, the family had to move to different parts of Assam and West Bengal. Born at Guwahati, they had shifted to various places like New Barrackpore (West Bengal), Goalpara & Rangia of Assam. During their stay at Rangia, political agitations started. Due to that mess, schools were shut down very often and his father decided to shift the family to West Bengal.
For two long years, they had to stay separately in different places of West Bengal, but finally, after that period, they started to stay together in Krishnanagar City (West Bengal). Younger brother, Sibasish and Debasish were admitted at Krishnanagar A. V. High School, while elder brother Jayanta and youngest Bibhuti were admitted at Krishnanagar High School and only sister Susmita was admitted first at Akshyay Vidyapith, then to Lady Carmicle Girl’s High School.
Debasish cleared Madhyamik (Class 10) in the year 1986 and Higher Secondary (10 + 2) in the year 1988. Thereafter, he then joined in Krishnanagar Government College with Science stream. Jayanta was one year senior to him and Sibasish was one year junior in the same college. In the year 1989 he cleared the Combined Defense Service entrance examination, but unfortunately, could not overcome the barrier of viva, physical test, medical check-up and other tests. But, to prepare properly for the trial, he started a tough and hard work out. First and foremost part of his work out was running. Debasish started to run, the journey started, and it continues….
In 1991 he graduated with Mathematics Honours and joined for Applied Mathematics at Rajabazar Science College under Calcutta University. Meanwhile, his father Jitendra Nath Biswas, retired from job due to superannuation and the family had to face financial crisis. Hence, before completing his graduation, he started to appear in various entrance tests for jobs. He got employed in the Nadia Gramin Bank in the year 1992 and was forced to quit his post graduation in Applied Mathematics on midway. After one and a half years of service in the bank, he joined the Income Tax Department as an Upper Division Clerk (UDC). Meantime, he cleared the exam of Income Tax Inspector and just after four months as UDC, he joined as Inspector in the Income Tax Department in April, 1994. After joining in Income Tax, he wished to continue his studies further, which he had to leave in order to support his family’s financial crunch. He first joined in Master of Business Management (MBM) under Calcutta University and then Master in Computer Application (MCA) under Jadavpur University, but, his wish of higher studies had to be given up. Those two courses were very much practical types and regular day courses, so he had to quit that hope to continue service and study simultaneously.
