Rimi Chatterjee









Hello World! I am Rimi Chatterjee. An Indian by birth, my career has taken me from the streets of Kolkata (India), to Pune (India), to Southern California (USA), to Germany, and now, finally, to Oxford (UK).

Apparently, they have run out of Size 4 shoes in […]

Sepia Tone

For those who are art/photography enthusiasts, ‘sepia tone’ is the dark brown tinge that is sometimes applied to pictures to give them an antique feel.
