Subroto Mukherjee

Subroto Mukherjee is a senior citizen, presently retired from active work life who now spends his time pursuing several hobbies and interests which was perhaps not possible during his active working career. By profession, he is a B.Tech (Hons) chemical engineer from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India with a Post Graduate Diploma in International Trade from the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, New Delhi, India. After having worked with several well-known companies in the field of chemical, electro-chemical, ceramics, petro-chemical and also electrical engineering, he finally hung up his boots in January, 2014 and retired from a senior leadership position from one of India’s largest private sector organizations.

He has several hobbies, ranging from gardening, horticulture, keeping German Shepherd Dogs and decorative carps, travelling, photography, architecture, amateur astronomy, music and reading and is particularly interested in ancient history and genetics.

His interest in hobby farms and second homes as well as the first-hand experience he garnered while developing his hobby farm in Maharashtra prompted him to share his experiences with people who may be desirous of knowing more about this subject in the Indian context.

With two grown up and married sons who are pursuing their careers in different cities, the author and his wife mainly spend their time in Kolkata with occasional trips to their farmhouse where they pursue their interests and live their rural dreams.
