Ankur feels privileged to have had the opportunity to have fond memories of St. Xaviers Collegiate School Kolkata and thereafter once in a lifetime experience to cherish various culture, food and people in Taiwan, USA and Australia through his higher education.
This global trotting experience has not only helped Ankur understand various cultures but also implement ideas to bond stronger with these cultures back home whilst dealing with expats.
Ankur's hospitality experience of over 20 years in and out of Kolkata, helped him work in hand with his father, Capt. Siddiqui, to build a corporate guest house setup in Salt Lake by the name of Sidd's Hospitality for almost 10 years now.
His experience during his tenure in hospitality has helped him connect with bloggers on daily basis which helped him understand the importance of the blogging eco system. That's where the collaboration of ideas between Ankur and Paromita, resulted in Top Food Bloggers Award. A small step to recognize the efforts of these bloggers and celebrate them.
Presently, Ankur handles two hotels in Bangladesh and plans to introduce TFBA in Bangladesh to ensure a cross exchange program between the blogging community of both countries.
