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.
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 <a href="http://picklesolutions.in/" rel="nofollow">Pickle Solutions Pvt Ltd</a>, 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 <a href="http://streetsofcalcutta.com/" rel="nofollow">The Streets Of Calcutta</a>, probably the first city specific photo-archive. Gradually <a href="http://snappho.com/" rel="nofollow">Snappho Photography Services</a> was born with the aim of providing a combined photography marketplace experience. In 2015, we came up with <a href="mailto:http://socialbong.com/" rel="nofollow">Social Bong</a>, the online PR management consultancy for MSME sector. <br> 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. <br> But, somewhere in between, I started a blog post named <a href="https://mohamushkil.wordpress.com/" rel="nofollow">https://mohamushkil.wordpress.com/</a>, 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: <br> • <a href="http://www.polkacafe.com/biriyani-places-in-kolkata-1917.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.polkacafe.com/biriyani-places-in-kolkata-1917.html</a> <br> • <a href="http://www.indiatimes.com/culture/food/13-chinese-dishes-you-get-in-calcutta-that-will-have-your-taste-buds-in-a-tizzy-231056.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.indiatimes.com/culture/food/13-chinese-dishes-you-get-in-calcutta-that-will-have-your-taste-buds-in-a-tizzy-231056.html</a> <br> Just for the record, my blog's alexa rank is 19,88,223 globally (http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/http%3A%2F%2Fmohamushkil.wordpress.com ) ..... 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. <br> 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. <br> • Email ID: <a href="http://firstname.lastname@example.org" rel="nofollow">email@example.com</a> <br> • FB profile: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/indrajit.lahiri" rel="nofollow">https://www.facebook.com/indrajit.lahiri </a> <br> • Twitter handle: <a href="https://twitter.com/ILahiri" rel="nofollow">https://twitter.com/ILahiri</a> <br> • Instagram handle: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/indrajit_lahiri/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instagram.com/indrajit_lahiri/</a> <br> • LinkedIn profile: <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/lahiriindrajit" rel="nofollow">https://www.linkedin.com/in/lahiriindrajit</a>
