Born and brought up in Kolkata, Rupak Ghosh is a banker by profession and is presently working out of Mumbai on an official assignment. Being in love with the city of Kolkata, Rupak wishes to return to his home town one day, happily settle down with his friends and family and soak a bit in the "Joy of the City". With this desire, he decided to pen down his thoughts and shares the same with the world, especially with those readers who have been compelled to settle outside their hometowns either for earning a living or for some other larger compulsions of life. He strongly feels that his debut novel, "The Red Hibiscus" might evoke in his readers the same lost love for their own roots and at the same time might also inspire them to return at least once to the place where they belong to. A singer, a writer, a juggler, a musician and intermittently a great cook, Rupak indulges in each of these with equal zeal and dedication.
