He got his initial talim from his father from very childhood. Later Sri Gopal Baruri took him to the tabla maestro Sri Shyamal Bose.

While residing almost every moment with Sri Shyamal Bose ( Abhijit used to call him as "jathamasai") for last 15 years with him Abhijit got the exclusive talim from him which made him a true researcher of this magical instrument. He went through the difficult but romantic ways of his training with his guruji which made his knowledge on the subject very much clear and authentic. He has an archive of rare and exclusive "Bol" (compositions) in his mind which may be an asset for a true learner. Most importantly, "I like teaching a true student", says Abhijit in his close circuits, which shows how he is eager to offer all his knowledge which he had occupied with great unimaginable efforts throughout his life.
