Growing up in West Bengal
I was born and brought up in West Bengal. I completed my engineering from REC Durgapur. Post which, I have been at Wipro in Bangalore since the last 21 years.
When I was growing up in West Bengal, education was priority number one, which I am sure is the case in most middle class Indian families.
In Bengal, however, the goal for women was not just to be educated, but also to participate meaningfully in the society. However, I really came into being after my marriage.
Even though I was growing up in West Bengal, there was a lot of Bihar in me.
My parents are from Bihar. So I had to get married early and I had to be a good wife, I was growing up with that mindset.
Despite all that, there was always the confidence and courage to be oneself, which was inculcated in me by my parents.

“Life is 10 percent what you make it
and 90 percent how you take it.”
