Priyatu Mandal, (प्रियतु मन्डल), is a rare specimen found in parts of North India. At times he is sighted in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, till recently in Nahan in district Sirmaur, and at times in what is claimed as his hometown, Kolkata. He is an adult male Homo Sapiens with Asian features, with a complexion dark enough to be confused for the new Prez across the Pacific. He has the intelligence of a cretin, or a young chimpanzee, but somehow he has earned a few degrees here and there. It is a great honour for Wikipedia to let the specimen speak for himself.

So, what do I do?
For long I thought that I would use the designation poet, writer and philosopher in my signature files. May be I shall make a start with Wiki. I do write poetry. I do write other things about which I least know of. And I love philosophising. So, there you are!
