Biography of JIBAN GOSWAMI

I was born in Guwahati, Assam India. I did my schooling in Guwahati and did my B.Sc with Honours (Major, as it is known in many places) in Physics. I enrolled for my Master degree in Physics but landed in a coveted job before completing the course.
I retired as a senior Executive (As what is known as a Chief General Manager) from the State Bank of India, the largest Bank in India. I was posted for 4 years as the CEO of the Bank's Osaka operations, Japan, from 1996 to 2000.
I am married with two children. My wife is the Principal in charge of a Government School in my home town and she has another year of service left. My son is married and works for a software Company in Bangalore as does my daughter in law. Daughter is a PhD student in a German University under fellowship from Max Planck Institute.
I like reading. Some of my favorites are John Steinbeck, Graham Greene, Carlos Castaneda, PG Wodehouse, and many Indian authors. I am taking up translating Assamese (my mother tongue) novels and stories to English more as a pastime rather than with any serious intention of publishing. I like sketching a bit but not seriously.
I am 63 and spending a more or less contented retired life.

Enigma Is Thy Name

You remain in a cocoon of my fantasy
Fingers of reality not to pry it open
and rupture the henna leaves nestling it in my heart
With your enigma gone, so would you.'
