Strategy, designer and artist Parisian life  

First book: Shombit Sengupta’s first book “48 heurespour quiterla France” was written in French, and published by Michel Lafont, France, in 1991.
The book was about his experience as a designer in European corporate houses to bring drastic changes in them from France to other parts of the world. He‘d arrived in France from a penniless home outside a Kolkata refugee colony in 1973 to become penniless illegal immigrant intent upon becoming an artist.
But in 1977, the central police station in Paris ordered his deportation, he had to leave France within 48 hours. Unknown to him, a guardian angel in the form of a kind-hearted woman in another counter of the police station, watched his entire eviction interview.
As he was leaving the police station with his year old child and wife, she discreetly asked him where his son was born.
On discovering that he was born in France, she declared that he had every legal right to stay in France, nobody can throw them out. She provided him all help to legalize his stay in France.
Subsequently the Sengupta family got French nationality. The book describes his strong love for French art and culture, his acceptance to work under any situation to get a foothold in France. Shombit later became among France‘s most distinguished business strategists and designers.
This book explained how, in spite of a huge immigration problem, French society and corporate houses gave him enormous courage, support and acceptance to establish himself as a sought after creative person in the country.
