Arun Kumar Das is a senior architect who resides and runs a professional architectural and interior design practice in Mumbai. Having lived in this metropolitan city for well over 5 decades and with his intention of giving back to his roots, he constructed a six storied building at his native place Karimganj, Assam about 16 years ago. It was in 2008 that he developed a state of the art shopping centre in the said building . As Karimganj and the adjoining areas remain underdeveloped he chose to initiate private development there through personal investment thereby giving the region a much needed facility of convenient shopping for the daily needs of the people which simultaneously also generated employment for some of the unemployed youth of the town.
