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.

Love's Travails

Love’s travails

Moonbeams try by night
to suck away the fragrance of jasmine
dismayed, weep dew drops
before vowing to try again.

Love’s rhythms breach night’s silence
with clinking bangles and tinkling anklets

[Hata Bildir]
