I am a retired Accountant of a very old and reputed tea company in upper Assam. I was there for about 14 years and have a very pleasant experiences. Before that I was a Senior Manager of a Chartered Accountant firm for 10 years. Since there was some difference of opinion between me and the Senior Partner of the firm on a Audit Report, I resigned and joined the tea company.
I am very passionate about my work and the things that interest me. I am Bengali, but believe me I do not like ADDA (gossip) without specific topics. My best place to attend was Coffee House where we few friends used to meet every Saturday, and discuss on any subjects at length, may it be cinema, sports, education, except politics. I enjoy songs of early 80’s and more specifically Rabindra Sangeet and ghazals.
My great inspiration is Swami Vivekananda.
And finally why I am here? To learn from changing socialising of information and its tremendous impact on our day to day life.
