I came to Dubai to live with my son in November 2020.He warned me that at your age and time,you will find it difficult to get myself a friend here.He felt,Dubai is highly transaction based,and with no business,no friends, no investments,I will find it very difficult. I was not the type to find friends myself. I told myself,I would generally chill,and go for long drives,spend time in the beaches and get going. I did have a cousin brother here in Dubai,maybe he can give me some relief. So,I along with my wife,Ranjana,started visiting Bappi’s home regularly. His wife Porna was... View Article

Most of my ADULT life,I realised,that I have seldom thought about my self development,growth, in the real sense.Whenever those thoughts came into my mind,I actually started thinking of my Family,my sons,etc,as my method of self growth and self discipline.This was perhaps the most damaging thing I did to my own self growth.So, after 30+ years,what I see as a storehouse within me,are thoughts of development of my Family,most particularly of my sons,but that did not add much value to my own self.I therefore remained where I was. I seldom though to “self -learning”,though I was talking about it all the... View Article

Technically, on 6th November 2022, Globsyn and BDG completed 25 years of their journey in Kolkata. Started as a small fledgling company, it has grown from strength to strength, because of its multi-faceted people, assisted by some astute leadership, it has grown many levels to reach where they are today. It is immensely satisfying to see Globsyn today, run by the second- generation Dasgupta family members. The first generation or the Founders have a more satisfying and pleasing role for themselves in the form of Philanthropy and Investments, taking the Group collectively along a long way. God bless GLOBSYN !!!
Most of our decisions, actions, movements, directions are controlled by our Central Nervous System. They definitely direct the functions of the mechanical parts through the mind. Thus mind assumes importance. The pace at which mind acts is different from the pace of the body. When we are young, definitely till we are around 60 years of age, the mind-body coordination works beautifully and thus control and direct our actions. Slowly, with progressive age, the body doesn’t function at the same efficiency as the mind and at times the CNS or the Central Nervous System signals reach late for the body... View Article
When you start getting older, it becomes difficult for you to accept that your concentration, focus, attention to details, memory — all are reducing by the day. You still want to believe that you are the same person, as you were 20 years back and try and conduct yourself in the same way. God forbid, if you happen to make a blunder, like I did, then you face a highly embarrasing, humiliating experience in your life and open yourself to misunderstandings among very close people. MISUNDERSTANDING does hurt. Coming from near and dear ones, it hurts more. But you were... View Article
Winding up your responsibilities and commitments in life is a very sensitive and completely independent journey. You start dealing with the personal lives of very close people and not so close people and any mistake or inadvertent act of yours can be criticized. ‘You can do no mistake’ — that’s the norm. It is also a phase where you are slated to do multiple things, all of which are nerve wrecking and demand focused brain time from you. In this situation, you are prone to miss out and commit some errors, which you will not be allowed to do. Hence... View Article
