I am an entrepreneur by profession. After heading the Education BU of one of the largest OEMs globally, in 2012, I felt like starting something on my own and thus formed Pickle Solutions Pvt Ltd, which in turn became one of the leading IT roll-out firms, mostly working in the North-East part of India. But, inside, I felt like doing something other than this and as I loved taking pictures and travelling a lot, formed The Streets Of Calcutta, probably the first city specific photo-archive. Gradually Snappho Photography Services was born with the aim of providing a combined photography marketplace experience. In 2015, we came up with Social Bong, the online PR management consultancy for MSME sector.
I am an avid photography enthusiast and my work has been published in the leading newspapers many a times and was even displayed in the first ever Instagram exhibition in India, held in Kolkata in 7-9th January'16.
But, somewhere in between, I started a blog post named, literally meaning "A lot of trouble" in bengali language, which mostly featured my gastronomic and travel experiences. I try to be honest, in fact brutal to some extent, with my experience and reviews. The blog has been featured in numerous places, some of them being:
Just for the record, my blog's alexa rank is 19,88,223 globally ( ) ..... So far, the journey has been quite satisfying to say the least. Being a food Blogger, I regularly get invites from hotel brands like ITC Soar, Novotal Kolkata, Swissotel and many others on a regular basis, but due to my engagements, have to give a miss to a few of them too.
So far, this has been my journey and I strongly believe that I have to improve a lot and a long path has to be covered int his journey. Blogging for me is mostly a learning session and a medium of engagement with my readers globally.

Chhota Bristol: A Bar That Distills The Essence Of Kolkata

When I told one of my friends that there's a bar near Esplanade crossing, where you still get Tuborg beer for ₹115, all inclusive, all I got was a glance of disbelief. And when I said that the bar came complete with proper seating and AC, he was pretty sure I was stoned. Thus started the journey to arguably one of Kolkata's oldest and cheapest bars -- Chhota Bristol, aka Shaw Brothers.
