A visit to Park Street

After a boring, un-Christmasy 25th December I planned out to pay a visit to Park Street, the most hip and happening place in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) the following day. Along with me were two of my amazing friends, Rohit and Ambar. We decided to avail the metro rail services to reach our destination. Carrying on […]

Would you like to see all countries be a blended diversity of as many different races and ethnicities as ‘possible’, or should that only be some countries?

(ORIGINALLY ANSWERED AT QUORA) This question is a bit controversial. I belong to a country of diverse cultures. Since times immemorial, people from different nations have made it there home.

Sizzler

I tried a dish named Sizzler a few days back at Wild Berry restaurant, Bhubaneswar. It is within a 1 km walking distance from my college. It’s a moderately expensive place to eat out. Since it was the last week at college before my birthday, I decided to throw a lunch-treat-exception. (Tried hard to be […]

True or not?

What’s true? Buy yourself a ₹5,500 professional lie detector machine. Ask to it, “Are you true blue?” It’ll not give you any satisfactory answer. So what’ll you understand?

A poem on Durga Puja

This Durga Puja I decided to write a short poem in my native tongue, Bengali/Bangla. To know more about the language. What should you know about my language! ক্লাসের বেঞ্চে ঢাকের অনুকরণ, ছেলেবেলার স্মৃতি চারণ | বাড়ির প্রতি টান মনে করিয়ে দেয় শরতের গান বিলুপ্ত কাশ ফুল, দেখতে প্রবাসী খুবই ব্যাকুল || পুজোর দিনগুলো যাচ্ছে কেটে, […]

Mahalaya

I have always been a late riser. Waking up before 8 o’clock in the morning was simply an unachievable task for me as a child. I hated the fact that I needed to wake early only to listen to a radio programme consisting mostly of a baritone chanting hymns and disturbing my hours of deep […]

(The featured image is of me playing Esraj) What’s Esraj/Israj?  Never thought I will require to make a portfolio for myself as an Esraj player.
