This is our house at 79/1 Amherst Street, Kolkata, India that was built in 1910
by my grandfather Lt. Col. Suresh Prasad Sarbadhikari. He was a renowned surgeon
of his times.
The building has been declared a Heritage Building in the
city of Calcutta on 30-Aug-2001.
The ground floor is where I see my patients, the first floor
has living and dining rooms and the top floor has our bedrooms. The roof houses
my wife's potted plants collection.
You can see a glimpse of another house to the left. That also
belongs to us but is rented out. We keep our car there in the ground floor
The sketch above is by a well known artist Rathin Mitra - who
was drawing a series of heritage houses in Calcutta for the Sunday Telegraph
Magazine. We were delighted to see the picture in one of the issues.
