Mrinal Kanti Bhowmick is ANET’s first employee and has been with us since ANET’s inception. As the Housekeeping in-Charge, he is the face behind your clean bedding, termite-free walls and shiny, stocked bathrooms. He is also experienced in snake handling and rescue, and has interests in birding. Montu da, as he is fondly known, lives in Wandoor, South Andaman and speaks Hindi and Bengali. He is a man of few words, but is known to silently orchestrate elaborate pranks. He also has a keen eye for detail and few secrets escape him. Catch him at volleyball to see his killer serves. Montu da, at other times, is a benevolent uncle to the base; treating everyone to sweets and fruit from his home.
