He has translated Rabindranath Tagore and Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay and other Bengali writers, and co-founded the School of Cultural Texts and Records, which does digital archiving, database creation and computational analysis of texts, and ran the project Bichitra, a comprehensive online variorum of the works of Tagore.
