    Hello Uncle,
    My dad, recently sent me a link to your blog. It is pure coincidence that I was reading a bit on Bengali culture, mainly centered alot on Calcutta. So when I read what you wrote, it was like Deja Vu. Really enjoyed it! I also saw your Bio. If I were to have a bio 30 years from now, it would look extremely similar to yours. If you still happen to wonder who my dad is, I am sure you are familiar with the name Sachidanand…
    I shall surely follow your blog 🙂
    Hope to see you sometime.

    Soumya is an “alumnus” not “alumni” of St. Stephen’s College…. Alumni is plural.
