Babu, Sundar. Sundar Babu was created by the Indian author Hemendra Kumar Ray (Bimal, Indian Vampire (III), Invisible Man (II), King Kong (III), Mad Scientist (IV)) and appeared in at least a dozen story serials and novels from 1930 to the late 1950s, beginning with “Amabashyar Raat” (Mouchak, 1930).
Sundar Babu is a gluttonous, lugubrious Bengali inspector in Calcutta. He is helped by two younger men, Manik, a former assistant, and Jayanta. Sundar Babu’s catchphrase was “Hoom,” given to indicate his hunger or as a reaction to a complication.
