My 1st lesson of business: Trust.


It is a human world and we deal with human beings. Business, like any other relation, depends how much one person trusts the other.

Remembering Thamma (Grandmother).

When my mother used to be away with my sister for her music/dance class or perhaps her tuition classes, I sneaked into Thamma’s room and either did my school homework or play chess or listen to stories of Krishna and Chaitanya.

The Hazarduari palace was built by Mir Jafar’s family while Shiraj Ou’Dullas palace was on the other side of the river, now raised to the ground.  The Hazar Duwari complex has – Nizamat […]

Yet another scribbling.

Some idle time by the side of the river watching the children play, the ducks walk around, the daily labourers smoking marijuana and ranting about their daily life. It was still warm after the sun set. It was windy by the river Ganga. Slowly the darkness enveloped the region. I had lost my mental calm after ages. I stared at the […]
