Dr. Akash Kumar Rose

Director, Mentor

Doc, as he is lovingly and respectfully addressed by everyone who comes across him, is a mentor and inspiration for us at Lemondust Studios. With a lineage of extremely talented paternal and maternal family, doc was a prodigy in all fields they mastered. His paternal grandfather, the principal of the International school in Burma for Literature and his father who was a lecturer in English Literature inspired him to become a literary connoisseur and author and editor for prestigious publishers. His father was also the Joint secretary for the Ministry of Agriculture (central govt) and financial advisor to Indian railways. His beloved grandmother, who was a talented western classical violinist, recognised his love for music early on and taught him to play the violin from the young age of 4 leading to his accomplishments in the field of music. His mother, Tera Bai Rose, contributed to his love for art. A published commercial artist, she was commissioned by elite corporates to create pieces of art, inspiring Doc to follow in her footsteps in the field of design. His grandfather, Dr. Devanayagam, was a well known and beloved doctor who led him to the world of medicine encouraging him to ace this field as well.
