Rabindra Guha [ রবীন্দ্র গুহ ] (born 25 October 1934) is a Bengali poet of the Hungry generation movement in literature who subsequently started the Neem Sahitya Andolan with Mrinal Banik and Biman Chattopadhyay from the steel factory city of Durgapur in West Bengal. He has written several collections of poetry, short stories and novels. He is known mainly for the language of the Bengali diaspora which he adopted and developed for his narratives. He lived in Kolkata only until the Hungry generation movement died down at the end of the 1960s, and shifted thereafter to Durgapur. At the end of Seventies he shifted his base to New Delhi where he invented his narrative language of the Bengali diaspora, i.e. of people who live outside West Bengal.

A group which called itself Dilli Haaters developed around him. Prominent members of that literary group included Dipankar Dutta, Pranji Basak, Dilip Foujdar, Krishna Mishra Bhattacharjee etc.
