I teach English literature at Calcutta University. I edited the book reviews of a well-known journal for ten years. I taught French at Alliance Française for a decade and worked as Director of Publications at the French Embassy, New Delhi.
I have written a few books of essays including one on T S Eliot, and attempted to translate among other things La Rochefoucauld's Maxims.
My best moments were spent with family and friends. My father was my idol. I am hurt by insincerity and ingratitude.

My favourite moments
Yes, I love teaching, I savour every minute of my lectures. And I love to sculpt my articles, and I know I have created my own style in Bengali prose.
But if you ask me to choose the best option, I shall surely go for a film by Ray or Bunuel.
