Though his brother and mother are with him at Stockholm, for thousands of Calcuttans who had been ecstatic and shared the pride of Abhijit winning this prestigious award, television and live mobile streaming would be the only chance to share the moment.

Incidentally Banerjee will be in Kolkata next month and Presidency University where he was a student plans to felicitate him. They have already put his name on the Wall of Fame. Even his school South Point has plans to felicitate him along with the state government. As for now get glued to your TV sets and share this moment of pride and honour for all of us!
