““It has been more than 10 years since I have known Somnath Roy as a close friend, senior and a fine colleague at different organization. I was first introduced to Somnath Roy, when I joined the college for graduation, where he was also doing his graduation in the final year. Somnath Roy is one of the most disciplined and punctual people I’ve ever known. His ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and nerve-wrecking deadlines speaks volumes about his hard work, determination and his composed demeanor. Somnath Roy is a compassionate and hardworking human being with perseverance and ambition. He has always come across to me as an exceptionally dynamic professional with excellent leadership skills and team spirit while working a team of employees. Somnath Roy will certainly be an asset to the organization he works with and I would certainly recommend him to leadership roles where a company would benefit from his commitment and enthusiasm. Wish him all the best.”” September 14, 2009
