I love oil painting and sketching. My guru is Torit Mitra, an artist par excellence, who is now a renowed Bengali Dramatist. Torit da’s skill is supreme, you have to watch him to believe … how I wish I could draw like him. I have two artist friends, Rupak Roy and Sagar Talekar. Both are wonderful in their own ways, I have learned a lot from them, and I will be forever indebted to them.

You can see some of my paintings below:

I particularly like Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings. One of my favorite Van Gogh paintings is the “Starry Night” and it is also referred to in the song “Vincent”

"Happy are those who dream dreams
 and are ready to pay the price
 to make them come true"
