“Namaste” —greetings to you. Born and raised in Kolkata, India, I bring with me the sights, the sounds, the colors and the tastes of this magical land! Today’s India is a land where a 5,000-year-old past mingles with a thoroughly modernized present. In my residency I offer that unparalleled cultural experience.
