Harry was born in Calcutta in August 1946, a year before independence. At that time, Calcutta was the second-best city in the world, after London. The City of Joy, as Calcutta was popularly known, has unfortunately turned into a city of grief today. Harry shifted his base to Bombay and set up factories in Palghar, Silvassa and Ankleshwar. But Calcutta was never far from his heart and remained an integral part within him. He never let go of his dream to return to his place of birth, also the birthplace of the engineering industry in India. His ultimate wish was to see Calcutta regain its position among the main cities in the world.
While that comes to pass, Harry has come a long way in life. A self-confessed flirt, he has seen it all right from his early days in Calcutta, to the present in the upper crust SoBo. From his sea-facing penthouse in Colaba, Harry witnessed the great jinx of the rich, the beautiful, the ambitious and the smart. And of those seeking love beyond the limits of age, gender, social class, society, and life itself.
