I would walk from Gole Park to Jadavpur. There was a short summer programme, I stayed in Kolkata for two months."
"I liked reading Bangla, so I decided I would do it long term. I stayed on for another six months, then I went to Delhi to study Hindi."
"Bangla is a rich language. I have read Feluda's stories (the detective created by Satyajit Ray). I have seen a few Bangla films too. I have seen Pather Panchali. I love Rabindranath Tagore's Postmaster."
"I loved ilish maach, but in Japan, we don't have any fish preparations with mustard. I did not like roshogolla the first time I had it, but loved it the second time."
