Telling stories has always been Tathagata‚Äôs first love. He has been into writing for a long time since he was 14 years old. He used to write short stories, poems, short verses and then novellas, many of which eventually got published. He was also into classical painting and in his final year at high school, he and some of his friends started publishing a little magazine called "Swarnaporni" (The Golden Leaves). The magazine had poems, short stories, novellas and comics. Being a writer and painter, Tathagata was a regular contributor to the magazine. Apart from illustrating his own stories, he illustrated other stories as well. Eventually this interest for pictorial depiction transformed into making films. Storytelling, to Tathagata, is magic. It helps him discover himself and his characters, who step into the world of realism. He also writes for various web film magazines about cinema and film making.

Their stories need to reach out to people all over the world and it is his goal to be their voice throughout.  Having completed his studies in film and television, he has been constantly at his craft and complementing his love and madness for film-making.
