Built in 1958, by the Zamindaar family of Moni Mohan Khan, Sushma Villa has served host to three generations of the Pal and Khan Family. Presently it is managed by Indrani Khan and Debjani Rudra, school teachers by profession. Debjani is still a senior teacher in La Martieniere, one of the most reputed schools in Kolkata. They divide their stay between Kolkata and Darjeeling. Day to day activities are taken care by experience Caretakers. I, Indradeep, the son of Indrani Khan, take care of the Marketing, since my mother is not very internet savvy
