I heard a lot about the Indian freedom struggle from my grandfathers and watched them giving importance to human welfare and their sentiments. Following their ideology, I found peace in making others happy.
After completing my MBA, I joined the corporate sector. But in 2007, I shifted to the education sector. This gave me an opportunity to explore the talents of our Bengal artisans and their immense talent. Seeing their miserable state, I decided to form a group with seven people, who have expertise in one or two artforms.
We design according to customer’s requirements and use different art-forms in our work which makes us unique. Every week we try and include a new item.

This is a story of how a matrimonial website service turned into a nightmare for me, already traumatized by the two relationships I’ve had. It’s a story for every woman who lives her life on the principles of honesty and trust.
And when she enters the bedroom, she sees her husband's towel lying on the bed, his underwear thrown about in their bathroom. She rolls her eyes, sighs and picks it up to put in the laundry bag.
Vasudha, age 28 – is an excellent dancer, writer, podcaster and a mandala artist. She is talented young woman, a go getter and wouldn’t bat an eyelid if she had to try anything new. She would go head on with it. Everyone knew Vasudha as this cheerful and pretty young lady.
