Dr Asis Chatterjee is a multi-faceted personality. Apart from being a successful Gynaecologist by profession, he is gifted with diverse talents.
Brought up in the industrial city of Durgapur, West Bengal, he studied Medicine at Calcutta Medical College. After completion of his studies he returned to his roots in Durgapur and spent his professional tenure as a Gynaecologist in Durgapur Steel Plant Hospital.
Apart from being a very popular and highly successful Gynaecologist, he is a well-known photographer, blogger, novelist, poet, and short story writer. But his most significant attribute is his thirst for knowledge of his own country, culture and people. This thirst has coxswained him to travel extensively both within and outside his state and country. He is considered an expert on Bengal temples due to his widespread knowledge on this subject, which he acquired mostly by visiting and photographing the temples in almost every nook and corner of West Bengal.
An ardent lover of the Himalayas, he likes to travel to the Himalayas whenever he can manage a little time in his busy schedule. He is also a serious student of Indian scriptures like Upanishads. Many of his writings bear the evidence of his deep love and respect for the Himalayas and the scriptures.
