Reviews from some of Roy's former Students -

Semanti Ghosh of IILM Business School (HR Specialization) says:
"I shall recommend Sir as a Marketing Professor as I got the opportunity to be his student during my MBA Days.His classes have always been very interesting as he used to explain us all the topics in a very practical and realistic way.The study material which he used to provide us was very different and example oriented....specially the Brand Marketing presentations and case studies helped us a lot to explore our knowledge and ideas of marketing. In one sentence I can say........ "Many Teach, Few Inspire"...and Sir is one of those few." 
Radhesh Prasad of Academy of Professional Excellence (Marketing Specialization) says:
"I have got the privilege to attend few classes of Kisholoy sir during the 3rd semester of my PGDM course. Few things are really nice in his teaching skill like he present the things in a very concise and simple form which is very easy to understand, use good nos. of relevant examples which also help to remember the topic etc. "

Sayon Biswas of Globsyn Business School Kolkata on behalf of his Learning Group (Marketing Specialization) says: 
"On the last day of our college, we just wanted to extend our heartfelt thanks for all your efforts and belief in us. It is because of your assignments that we all learnt to work as a team, learnt leadership, responsibility, working for each other and frankly speaking how to make a brand since LG-2 did become a brand because of your confidence in our work. Having said all this, we cannot put in words in a mail all that you have done for us. We just want you to know that though we will move out of campus, yet we will take with us the enriching experience with you and we will miss you and our conversations."
