Born in 4th May 1971 in Gauhati, Assam (eastern India), brought up mostly in the Himalayas (at Kurseong, Darjeeling), showed some talents as an illustrator since early childhood. Wanted to be a cartoonist after dropping out (in disgust) from high school because the science they were teaching was only for would be clerks and managers. Joined art college and ambitions changed to that of a serious artist for a while, while rebelling by dropping out again after first year. First and second exhibitions of paintings (inks, watercolors acrylics and oils) went largely unnoticed except for some encouraging reviews. Got into cartooning, journalism and finally web development. Art went into radical changes in form and content after introduction to computer tools around mid-nineties. Y2K Millennium Exhibition with Pygoya at Calcutta was a great high, quite well publicized. Created new web gallery (www.cyberartgallery.org) in 2003 (the third since 1996) and currently exhibits cyberart and digital art besides other categories. Meanwhile, got into education technology by 2003, wrote a new software which runs at some of the best world schools in Asia Pacific including India's most well known school at Kodaikanal. Runs a education software company and hopes to artistically combine education and technology in more ways than one besides pursuing artistic activities like painting, photography, digital media productions,... and perfecting ways to have more fun and nonsense!
