Kalyani Das (1907–1983) was an Indian revolutionary and nationalist from Bengal.[1][2]


She was the daughter of a well-known Brahmo teacher, Beni Madhab Das and a social worker, Sarala Devi. Her younger sister Bina Das was also a freedom fighter.


She was a student of Ravenshaw Collegiate School, Cuttack. Das finished her Bachelor in Arts in 1928.[citation needed]

Participation in India's freedom struggle

Das was a member of Chhatri Sangha, a semi-revolutionary organisation for women in Kolkata. On 1930, she led a protest of female students against Governor of Bengal. She was arrested for her anti-governor activity on 1932. Her classmate, another renowned freedom fighter Kamala Das Gupta was arrested at the same time.[2]


Das died on 16 February 1983.


She edited a book called Bengal Speaks (published in 1944), and dedicated it to her sister Bina Das.[3]
