Pulaha Roy
Pulaha Roy is from Calcutta, India, also called the City of Joy. “While cricket is a religion in India, in Calcutta soccer is the dominant sport that the people in the city follow. In Calcutta I did my schooling from Don Bosco School, a missionary-run school. I was always a sportsman and was a sprinter. I also represented my school in intra and inter level soccer championships in different age levels. “I did my graduation from Jadavpur University in Comparative Literature where we studied world literature the likes of Brecht and Camus. I represented my department in soccer championships. Apart from soccer I'm also in table tennis though it’s more like an avocation for me. “I have always been a sports avid (especially soccer) and have followed the commentary of Andy Gray and Martin Tyler (English Premier League). I actually liked the concept of sports commentary and picked it up from Harsha Bhogle, a popular commentator in the field of cricket. “Post my graduation I worked for a couple of years as a curator and a web producer in Scroll.in and Firstpost, two leading digital news outlet in India. That's where I got my first taste of what goes around in a newsroom. “I'm really looking forward to my time here in Syracuse and SCE in particular.”
