Shougat Dasgupta was born in Bombay but left when he was six weeks old. His only other stint in India was a four year stretch, 2002-2006, in Delhi where he worked as a journalist. He has been a fitful graduate student for the last six years in New York City and Washington, DC where his single achievement was developing a fearsome one-handed topspin backhand. He moved back to Delhi in June to work at Tehelka.
