A littérateur and scientist.
I am a writer, speaker, traveler and scientist. I love traveling, and am especially fond of natural, rugged beauty, jungles and wildlife. I speak and write on my experiences and adventures in exotic places, life and leisure and current events that interest me.
Two of my popular presentations are:
- Nepal: Land of Mountains, Jungles and Temples, and
- India: Land of the Taj Mahal and Tigers
For more information on these, see SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS.
I am also translating several selected Bengali stories into English as part of the initiative Bengali Literature Goes Global. This anthology will be published in 2017.
I have a M. Sc. in Physics (University of Calcutta) and a Ph. D. in Biology (University of Delaware). I have worked for over 20 years in the Biotech and Pharmaceutical industry. My career switch from science to literature was fortuitous and instructive, you can read about it in The Winding Road, and Three Careers across Three Continents. My scientific profile is on Linkedin.
