About A. Datta

I went to the following schools.
1) English Major
2) Diploma in RDBMS
3) Post Graduate Diploma in … [that's my secret]
4) Certificate in Computer Servicing
5) Microsoft Certified Solution Developer

I brought up over a dozen house cats in my 20s.

As a kid and as a teenager I was never a good amateur cricketer, not even average. But I insisted on letting everyone bowl and keep wicket whenever I was made captain. I also started the batting order with the guys who were the least likely to get a chance to bat with practically any of the other captains. Winning a casual open-to-everyone game was much less important to me than giving everyone a fair chance. Since the dominant guys wanted to hog all the action and were more vocal it would seem that I was a very unpopular captain. But I doubt it.

I'm proud to be an Indian and a world citizen. However, I always hated the most popular traditional attire worn by Indian women. The "sari" is a trap!

I always thought it a better idea to drive one's own four-wheeler than hire a chauffer -- something that was quite uncommon in India when I was a toddler.

Most of the eBooks to which I am contributor are my translations of works by Rabindranath Tagore, the first non-European to win a Nobel Prize for Literature.

I am also a loss-making webmaster. I created http://aucklandwhich.org which is a specialized search engine for geoconfusables and I have a lightning-fast tester for Dansguardian parental control software at http://d.yourfilter.org

If you read my translations of Rabindranath Tagore's works you will surely treasure them for generations …

Review by: Syamales Datta on Sep. 03, 2011 :
This book travels into the arena of riddles of time and space that have fantastic elements of thought provoking issues. The author has segregated time into past and future where past is infinite and more indefinite than the future which is also infinite.. Modern science gives time a dimension on the co-ordinate axes called the fourth dimension. Space is in three dimensions and itself is infinite. However it humbles down the space occupied by heavenly bodies to finite level because there must be a limit to their number even though we cannot count it. The author has referred to the Isaac Newton's inertial motion and Einstein's theory of relativity to diagnose the true nature of time and space. The book is worth paying some attention for those who have interest in the time space mysteries.
