Story
Tagline
A medical teacher in physiology from India. I'd love to make friends from all corners of planet Earth, till friends from outer space are found:-)
Introduction
An simple guy who loves nature and her mystery. Born & raised in a picturesque village in Burdwan, India, I did my schooling from Simlon A.K. Vidyamandir and thereafter Higher Secondary education from St. Xavier's College, Calcutta.

Earned MBBS degree in 1988 from R.G.Kar Medical College, Calcutta (Under Calcutta University); MD degree in Physiology from IPGME&R, Kolkata in 2009 (under The West Bengal University of Health Sciences). Presently, posted in the department of Physiology as Assistant Professor at B. S. Medical College, Bankura, India.

I love science and technology in its entirety.

Though I was there only for a week's assignment, the environment, faculty, work culture and a stunning array of instruments capable of probing deep into the very big and the very small etched its majestic impression on me. I wish to revisit this Institute to pursue further research and foster the advancement of science.
