The ancient civilizations of the entire world, especially that of India, with their spectacular manifestations, create an enchantment in me. Side by side age-old Indian philosophy, history, religion, folk-culture, literature, folk-art, etc. stir the very core of my mind. In every nook and corner of my home state, West Bengal, folk climes have its presence felt. Hence my utmost sincerity is to house those dew and dust strewn jewels into my compositions.
