Distinguished Surgeon Dr. Amitabha Ghosh Roy Releases Memoir, From Calcutta to Connecticut

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(1888 PressRelease) A fresh perspective on the immigrant experience.
BOSTON – Dr. Amitabha Ghosh Roy grew up in India and received his medical degree from Calcutta University in Calcutta, India. After finishing his internship at the R.G.Kar Hospitals, he was working for a rail-road company providing medical care to its employees, Dr. Roy heard American hospitals were looking for doctors and soon found himself on a plane to Connecticut.
From Calcutta to Connecticut looks at Dr. Roy’s journey from his tumultuous post-colonial days in India to the initial culture shock of arriving in America, becoming a man of two cultures with one foot rooted in India the other in his newly adopted home in America. His fresh perspective on the immigrant experience captures the allure of the American Dream.
Through vivid descriptions of India’s culture and his homeland, with a healthy dose of humor, Dr. Roy takes readers through the colorful festivals, food, traditions, kite fighting, and even the snake charmer of India. He shows the importance of following your dreams, even when the path isn’t easy. Many have their own interpretation of the American Dream, but people are more alike than they are different.
“I hope readers will enjoy my adventures and be inspired to take chances in life. It may open up a whole new world for you, as it did for me,” Dr. Roy said.
From Calcutta to Connecticut can be purchased through SDP Publishing Solutions, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
