Somnath is a Prince. I hate people who are attacking him. He is innocent I know for sure. Ultimately he will prove his innocence in court. He is my hero and I wish I could help with everything I got. I have already offered puja in the Indian temple in Columbus. When I go to Kolkata in december, I will also offer my puja in Kalighat. With Kali shaakti, he will defeat his enemies and also bring curse to those who are writing horrible things about him.

I guess the Bengalis can do it to their own people too. Too many greedy people.

If the accused is an immigrant and brought to trial and found guilty, he can be deported after finishing his sentence.

Lola, are you the business partner of Mr. Ganguly? Has Mr. Ganguly paid you to post it for him? Who says Somnath is a Prince? The person possibly is an insane. Somnath Ganguly is a thief and garbage to our society. His background needs to be checked thoroughly. If he found guilty, he should be behind the bar and should be deported to his country.

Interestingly there were only three grand patrons ($10K each!) from Columbus, Ohio for Bangamela.(That is a lot of money by any standards):

Not surprisingly these 3 names exactly match the ones who are behind the housing complex.

They also held big positions in Bangamela committee. The "committee" link is not functioning on the Bangamela website any more.

Is it because they are the richest and the most community-loving bengalis among all the Bengalis in Columbus? Something just doesn't seem right here.

The guys who are involved in Bangamela 2008 possibly pocketed lots of money out of Bangamela account. Did Bangamela 2008 committee publish income-expenditure statement? Bangamela committee 2008 have collected lots of money from advertisement, sponsorship from multiple individuals, grand patron as well as from 1700 registrants. Moreover, the committee did not pay enough money to performers who came all the way from Kolkata. Possibly, president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer possibly pocketed several thousands of dollars. Bangamela account needs to be investigated thoroughly.

How many innocent people are the victim of your fraudulent activities of Mr. Ganguly? It is clear from Columbus Dispatch that Mr. Ganguly is a crook and a thief in Bengali community of Columbus. He stole lots of money and tried to get rich overnight.

How dare anyone says I got paid by Somnath??? He does not even know who I am!! But he is my hero. He is a prince anda warrior. I have no shame in admitting that I am in love with him. Someday I may come out in the open. I pray every day so that victory comes to him and his enemy is defeated. Please stop abusing an innocent guy. He has done so much for our community. Finally the court system will set him free. He is suffering now and I wish I could hold him and wipe away his tears.

Mr. Ganguly, you unscrupulously made a fortune by conning people. Now please don't try to deviate from that and accuse a group of extremely hardworking, sincere, honest and culturally minded individuals who worked damned hard to make Bangamela a success, of money laundering. Bangamela accounts are done and whoever wishes to inspect it can request for it at anytime in a proper manner, not in this sneaky, nasty manner. There is nothing to hide. Shows how low you can go. Shame on you!!!!

I can understand that some individuals conned by Gangully. But business partners should find out pretty early if money was stolen from business. If someone takes the rent half in cash and half in check and one half is not getting deposited in right bank account, then other partners should be able to find out real quick, isn't that correct?

Bangamela may be done and accounting is good. However there is one aspect which may be of some interest for some people. It was told that some money was raised from India. Infact Sengupta and Chakraborty was in India for the fund raising activities in India. There was a discussion that few individuals from India helped to raise money there and they were expecting a percentage of the money raised there. Is this true? If it is true, how that is documented? Who are are these individuals?

How come a person can suuport this notorious guy who cheated and stole money from his own community members? He is supposed to go to jail. Hope, there will be a good legal judgement and he should spend all his life behind the bar. How come Mr. Ganguly shows his innocence when investigators mentioned that he is a thief? Is Somnath Ganguly a doctor?

Lola, how much money have you received from Mr. Ganguly to post favorable subject for him? From your post, it looks like you do not know Mr. Ganguly but you want to stand behind this thief. You possibly do not know Mr. Ganguly's habbit. One of my good friends (at present in Georgia)who worked with him in one hospital in Columbus called him as a 'great lier'. He also cheated several poor people at work.

Jan, I read all posting and agree with your conclusion. He is a notorious person in the Columbus community.I also donot understand why did some individuals gave Mr. Ganguly so much money for business without checking the business properly and his background. How long he has been doing this type of cheating business to his fellow Indians? I also understand from posting that he owns a separate business for which he also cheated couple of Indians. He should be punished through leagal system and Indians of Columbus should throw him out from community.

I believe you mean Ganguly not Chakrabarti.
Let the law takes its own course. Everybody has faith in law in this society. The police is doing its own job. But One thing I belive, Never support a Bad person ( whoever he is may be dear father to someone, but there should not be any compromise to
this type of fraud]. Honesty is something we learn in our chidlhood. To me This is severe crime. This type if person is another
Harshad mehta. If law puts him to give utter punishment. He deserves that. This is severe crime anyway to any concious person.

If he is found guilty in law and order system, he deserves that punishment. Never support a crime whoever is that person. This is no doubt extreme frad reminds me Harshad Mehta who cheated many people. Belive in law and order what they say. Police is doing its investigation. So many victims were involved in this crime . Is it worthy to believe that person? Does nt he think inside his mind and come to conciousness that he deserves
punishment?

It is so unfortunate to see people fighting ugly in open forum. Anyone should not attack personlly or raise any personal issues. This matter is subject to court to investigate and if court finds him guilty, then he deserves punishment. Pleas be mannered here. I can see some extreme frustrated faces here who enjoy other suffering in any way. Next Time it can be you also. Who knows what is in
your store tomorrow? There is a court who knows the truth and try to bring the truth. Even you and me dont know the truth. Have faith in court system.

This web site has been reported for FTCP violation. No one can post anything to slander any person or company. This website soon will pay its penalty to the person whose rights has been violated. The damage was determined $155,000.00. Please know we live in US not in India. Any one who breaks law will pay, crime pays. This was one of the nasty conspiracy masterminded by a CON whose name is Swaraj Chakrabarti and his right hand is Suvankar Sengupta. Soon they will be charged with Forgeries. At present IRS and FBI is investigating their criminal activities since 1998.
Web sites should validate their informations before posting. otherwise they pay penalty.

It looks like Somnath Ganguly is a notorious Indian guy who cheated several innocent people in Columbus. I read all postings and checked with news by newspaper. Is he behind the bar or still trying to cheat others in other city. He is an idiot in Columbus community. He is a characterless and spineless cheater who has been cheating everyone throughout his life

Sam was my colleague at work. He told me that he is in medical school. He also said he is single and wanted to make relationship for which we dated for one year. I realized that he is a fraud and great lier. He should be punished for his actions of cheating others. It is good to know that all in the community knows his character.I can characterize him as a spineless pretendor with ediotic mind
