There can be only one Bikramda! What is a good barometer of success? I imagine it would be a person like Bikram Dasgupta, who has been a pioneer in the Indian information technology industry with a voracious appetite for creating ideas, building relationships, nurturing talent, growing businesses and bringing tons of happiness to those around him. Today, he stands tall as a thinker, a firstgeneration entrepreneur and a master risk-taker. He is confident, popular and hasn’t shown signs of slowing down. To me, he is the very essence of ‘cool’.

If there is one person that exuded confidence, joy and hope while carrying the huge burden of the Indian hardware industry during its formative years, it has to be my friend, Bikram Dasgupta. When you were down in spirits, lost for next step, and submerged in your sorrow and misfortune, you just had to pick up your phone and connect with Bikram. You would emerge from that conversation smiling, confident about the future, and ready to conquer the world. Bikram and his wonderful family are lighting up Kolkata’s IT.
