  • I am a poet and author from Calcutta, India who elopes with travel, honeymoons with fractured sunsets, sleeps with dusk but is married to words.

My poems have fetched me an Honorary D. Litt., from World Academy of Arts and Culture, California.I have taught English in two schools but now teach in my own centre, Education Ahead. Churning out stories is what I love from the bottom of the heart and all other things I love from the surface of my heart.

Paperback – December 18, 2017

But he is running out of time. And he must hurry before the country will put him into trial. Will his words become a hate speech? Or envelop his countrymen with patriotic fervour? He has no answer to the question. However, whispers have already started making rounds of the Muslim, Hindu and Christian blood screaming in his veins which he has hidden from the people.
