Background

Saroj Nalini De was born in her father’s country house in Bandel, near Hooghly, in Bengal Province. Her father was Brajendranath De. She was brought up with her brothers and sisters and shared with them an education under a tutor and a governess. Members of her paternal family frequently visited the Brahmo Sammilan Samaj in Bhowanipore, Calcutta.

This body was later affiliated to the Associated Country Women of the World, an international organisation dedicated to the upliftment of the status of women worldwide. This organisation's activities were greatly expanded by her daughter-in-law Aroti Dutt, who was president of the association from 1972 and 2003.
