I lived in Kolkata, India for the first 25 years of my life. I came to the US in 1999 for graduate studies and have been living here ever since. Since I have your attention, I just wanted you to know that the correct pronunciation of my first name is Shush-shaw-to (with a soft t), which means eternal in Sanskrit. The strange spelling is a legacy of British rules of Sanskrit transliteration.

My wife, Rebecca, our daughter Shoronya (Rona), and I live in Silver Spring, a suburb of Washington DC and home to Silverdocs. Rona was born in April 2009. When we can free up some time, Rebecca and I indulge in making functional pottery and ceramic sculpture.

Rona spends her free time working on the chalk board. Completely unprompted.
