...There is nothing to stop me,
from getting lost,
anywhere at all,
if only I make a wish in my mind.

So I open the wings of my song,
I go beyond the stony wilderness of fairy tales,
I lose my way and reach some far away place,
where silence reigns...

...There is nothing to stop me,
from getting lost
anywhere at all,
when the wings of my songs are afloat.

As the sun sets in the horizon,
when mases of clouds look like flowers in the sky,
I float away somewhere far off.
And in my mind,
I burst open the closed door,
of a fairy tale home...

...Let my veil, like yours,
be dyed with the colour of fire.
Let the setting sun touch
the last savings of my heart
with its magic touch...

...The scent of flowers, unattached, floats around,
and birds with their call fill the sky.
But however much,
with all my heart, I try,
the tune does not fit the words,
now, that you are with me.

...excerpts from the works of Rabindranath Tagore.

The Amit:

  • Dad & Mom
  • Mr. Chittaranjan Rakshit.
    Mrs. Laxmi Rakshit.
  • Born
  • ...It was a time when
    From the leaves water fell in drops...
    The journey starts at Serampore in Hooghly district on 13th Novembar, 1972. I am the only son to my parents. I had live there upto 1980. Then I with my parents moved to Chandannagore.
  • Schooling
  • My schooling began at Milan Sangha Primary Vidyalaya. Then I got transfered in Durga Charan Rakshit Banga Vidyalaya. The School Final (Madhyamik) and Higher Secondary (12th standard) have been completed from this school. That was the year 1990 when a school boy had left the school with the dream of colors in life.
  • Graduation
  • With a keen interest in Mathematics, I promot myself in Serampore College (Calcutta University) for Bachelar in Science with Honours in Mathematics. Yes, this is the time when the dream began to blossom. But all the leaves of the dream didn't get their colors. I have completed this course in 1993 and here I received different memorial awards along with the Alround College Topper award.
  • Post Graduation
  • The two years duration of Master of Science in Applied Mathematics in Calcutta University is one of my greatest moments in my life. They show me the colors, they sing the rhythm of life, they give me smell of harmony in life. Hey, don't take it otherwise. Anyway I have completed my Master Degree in Applied Mathematics in 1995.
  • In ISI
  • This is the, well you can say this as Part-II, of my life. I have got admission in M.Tech. course in Computer Science at Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta in 1997. The life in Senior Boys' Hostel, ISI, was full of enthusiasm with a lot of friends with different views, different objectives from different parts of India. In fact, it is not possible for me to forget this part which has come to an end in 1999.
  • A brief Research Period
  • In between 1995 and 1997 I was involved some research work in the field of Magneto-Elasticity. For details see Resume.

    My Family:

  • Family Tree
  • Live while you live, the epicure would say,
    And seize the pleasures of the present day;
    Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries,
    And give to God each moment as it flies.
    Lord, in my views, let both united be:
    I live in pleasure when I live to thee.

    Excerpts from My mind:

  • My Hobby
  • Music - No not playing but listening to music. It gives a feeling of the augmentation of a split second of time wandering by lone sea breakers, and sitting by desolate streams. Yes, I must confess that some kind of addiction I have in the world of music. I don't have any particular choice, but have some weakness in Bengali songs and rhythms of instrumental tunes.
    Apart from music I love cooking. It's a great fashination to me.
  • My Leisure Time
  • It's really tough to manage leisure time, a time that is only for myself. And so, when I get it, music is always there. But when we all the friends are able to meet, there is nothing much better than 'adda'. Beside all these, reading novels poems specially in Bengali, are enchanting to me.
  • My Confidence
  • My confidance is my sincerity towards my responsibilities.
  • My Declaration
  • To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hardquest worth making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be. So,
    If I'm good, I'm good,
    If I'm not, I'm human.
    ... Love me anyway.
  • My Feeling
  • Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
