Meet Roy, My First Bengali Teacher

atanu-roy

I met Atanu Roy while working in the animation studio I worked for 10 years.  He was quite senior to me but always-ready-to help type of a person. His humble character got us connected.

I am always learning some or the other language and Bengali was on the list; but  I wasn’t sure where to start. Atanu, came as an angel and handed me some Bengali songs. It was a beautiful team work—I would listen to the song, again and again, and he would translate and transliterate each word for me.

I heard many songs and got to know the language quickly; all with divine support of this magic friend. He made the experience of learning such simple and till date I follow the same process to learn any new language.
