About Me

I am a writer, journalist and a historian based in Darjeeling, India. I am also an Assistant Professor and a Doctoral Research Scholar. My research interests lie in Media Anthropology, Media History, Social Anthropology  and Philosophy. I love travelling, reading books and cycling. If you share similar interests you can reach out to me at contactme@barunroy.com

Creative Interests

Film-making

I am interested in documenting various facets of social life.  I had the good fortune of working with some well known Directors and Film-makers from India, Nepal and Bangladesh and learn from them. 

Research

I love learning things. Hence research is something that I engage as a matter of persuasion but as a matter of love, something that comes from deep within. My greatest desire is to dedicate my life to research. My research interest includes Mass Communication, History and Anthropology. 

Writing

The pen is not just an instrument it is my friend to whom and through whom I share my wounds and my victories, my anguish and my joy. I do not write to please others. Neither do I write to please myself. I write because for me it is an act of being me, what I am and who I am.
