About Soumon Chatterjee

A Life in Words

I have been a traveler all my life. My love for travels and adventures grew as a kid from reading Satyajit Ray's - Adventures of Feluda which always had an exciting destination for mystery, and also the Adventures of Tintin.  The call for travel and adventure deepened after reading the poem 'Ulysses' by Lord Tennyson in my adolescence and possibly charted my course to the seas. My Dad had a transferable job in the Coalfields and my childhood was spent in various remote coalmine settlements of eastern India. We did not stay in a locality for more than four years. I stepped into my teens with a relocation to Kolkata and before my teens were over I had stepped out into the Seas, absorbing as much as I could of the vibrant city in those six years at Kolkata. My job as a sailor suits my exploring heart well and it has sent me across the Globe to numerous places known and unknown for the past 25 years. When I am not sailing, I try to tour and travel with my family to destinations beyond the reach of a sailing merchant ship. Kolkata is my home when I am not traveling.
I was always an avid reader of adventures and mysteries and now I have ventured into writing a few of my own. I hope to connect to each of my readers and take them on an enthralling ride through my stories.
