I was born on the first day of September, 1965, in a small town in the outskirts of Kolkata. Chandernagore Chandernagore was a French occupied colony till the mid 20th Century. Some relics of French era still exists near the Ganges river in the strands, and in Duplex Museum. We are long time residents of Chandernagore. My father is Dr. Joydeb Mukerji, a D.Sc holder from University of Paris, Sorbonne. My mother is Ms. Sunanda Mukerji. I have two sisters, Sudeshna and Sukanya. Going down the family tree, my Grandfather, Mr. Rajkumar Mukerji. He was a whimsical man, could read and write in 6 foreign languages, knew a bit of Homeopathy, Palmistry, addicted to crime thrillers of Edgar Wallace, play Esraj and Tabla, sing Shyamasangeet (possibly wrote a few!!!)...... He died at the age of 93.
