In the six-year course there, he passed the BA examination with honors and received a scholarship. At that time he had a strong desire to go abroad, but his father Rajnarayan Babu decided to marry him to prevent him from going abroad and the wedding day was fixed but Madhusudan did not consent to the marriage so he ran away on the wedding day and went to the mission of the Christian clergy. There he hid for three days.
As a result, he did not get married. Adarer Dulal, the only descendant of the Dutta family, has given great pain to the hearts of all due to his education and disorder. It was at this time that he began to study at Bishop’s College. After spending 4 years there, he was admitted to literary work and became a novice, but at that time he was short of money because he had to go to Madras in search of money if he did not get any help from his father after he converted.

On June 9, 1862, the poet’s wife left for London. He passed barrister in London for 5 years but in these 5 years he had to spend a lot of money in London and he did not have the money to return home. Eventually, the sea of mercy, through the genuine efforts of Hon’ble Vidyasagar and with 6000 Indian rupees, freed the poet Madhusudan Dutta from debt and gave him a chance to return to his homeland.
. Arriving in Calcutta, he started a barrister in the High Court but could not earn such a living and began to suffer financially. For this purpose he wrote Kabitamala, Mayakanon and Hector Badh. But his financial situation did not change much, and there was a lack of money. Eventually seeing no such improvement in the barristery, he went to Manbhum as the manager of the king of Panchkot.
There he became physically weak and became ill. He came to Calcutta for health care and then went to Dhaka. But as there was no physical improvement, he returned to Calcutta. Due to financial hardship, he had to sell his furniture at that time. The wife’s body began to weaken and crumble, and on June 26, 1876, she passed away.
