Mr. Gupta is the son of an eminent social worker and academician late Dr. Sukumar Gupta (Principal, Bangabasi Evening College, President Bangiya Vigyan Parishad) and Late Dr. Ira Gupta (general physician, dedicated her life in the development of health and education of slum children of Kolkata). Mr. Gupta in his early days used to participate actively in several roadshows, plantation drives with his parents. Especially in the 1980s every year 6th August on Hiroshima Day the largest non-political rally in Kolkata in those days was conducted by Bangiya Vigyan Parishad under his father’s leadership with the slogan ‘Say No to War’ which is very relevant in the 21st century too.
In his college days, he conducted some science exhibitions, street drama, and plantation drives. In 2004 the tsunami in Andaman had shaken his conscience. He took initiative to raise funds and
motivate others to raise funds for the tsunami victims. He inspired us to form the Aranyaj Society with a mission to serve nature and the underprivileged section of our society. Since then he is enriching us with his valuable advice and guidance. Besides these, he is pouring his professional skill as an entrepreneur in developing and encouraging villagers towards organic farming. Whenever there is a crisis in our organization, he comes forward to manage it. He has raised and arranged funds several times for our events or whenever there is a shortage in the fund.

Funding increased and so was the need for keeping proper accounting and control was felt. Then Mr. Sen was attached to us. He has expertise in designing financial systems and Internal Controls. We appointed him for bringing our so-called note based bookkeeping to proper formal accounting. And then started the journey, from excel to Tally and now QuickBooks. Our accounting, record keeping
internal controls, and Reporting gradually grew into a robust system, any funding agency/donor now can rely upon. He also visited our project site at Sundarban and also reviewed documents produced for fund utilization.
