Summary

I began my career as a print journalist and achieved the post of associate editor in a film magazine published from Kolkata. This led to Film appreciation course at FTII, Pune and I made my first film (non-fiction) in 1994 shown at different theater halls 
In 1998, my river meandered toward another opportunity when I became involved in media as an executive producer and developmental journalism, which also led me to my next divergence in 2010. I began working as an independent media consultant / producer-director / writer and photographer - mainly on rural India, both at plain-land and Himalayas.
I am a story teller. I believe, every moment - everybody have a story to tell and I love to express those stories with my long experiences of media & television.
