Social engagement

Screen Shot 2020-06-01 at 1.29.26 PMSince 2013, I have been a volunteer for Padakshep, a non-profit organization that primarily supports unprivileged but meritorious students in India (currently focused only within the state of West Bengal). Please consider supporting our effort, for example, by donating or joining us. Know about our scholars and projects.

I support other non-profit organizations like International Rescue Committee, World Food Program, Wikipedia; independent media like Democracy Now, Newslaundry.

Bangla Podcast

I have a YouTube Channel (in Bengali) called The Coffee House Experience where I discuss different topics related to Bengal and Bengali people in an informal fashion.

Literary work

Occasionally I dare to write micro-stories/poems in Bengali. Some recent ones can be found here:
