We live in Santiniketan, where Tagore's unique experiment with
education was carried out and is still being carried out .... with varying degrees
We stay in a house atop an artificial mound (hillock?!!) in the village of Kalapukurdanga. You can see a picture below :

Ducks in our pond
My family consists of my wife Samita Seal
who was a lecturer
in Physics at Suri Vidyasagar College,
one goose, two cobras which
have their holes by the side of our
pond, one cockatiel (Mitul flew/stumbled in from
somewhere and we got a wife for him, Tuli. Later Mitul, who was very old apparently,
died. We found that Tuli was actually Tulailama and so got a wife, Kurchi, for him! After Tulailama died, Kurchi is now alone ...) and myself.
We are off grid, so no TV / refrigerator / bright lights / high-power music system / electric water pump (aha! built a solar pump! - noisy!)/ fan / etc.
It is great fun - I can assure you!
