When we question her, how she is making a change in society? she said’ well, “ I am actively working with the women and children of the underprivileged sector of our society, trying to reach out to them and helping them in education, health, hygiene, fight oppression and abuse, and other related problems of the society. I am a writer/ poet and help to create Alzheimer’s awareness as my mother-in-law suffered from the disease, and knows it well. I am trying to create a strong support system for all caregivers because the caregiver’s health, wellbeing and mental health are of utmost importance in fighting any disease. I am also working for strays, esp dogs, adoption, vaccinations, fostering etc.
During the interview, we questioned her about the support system which made her what she is today? to which she replied, well “ I consider my parents, my friends, and last but not the least my husband, my sons, and my co-workers, all who lend me their strong support, lending all kinds of assistance.”
Apart from this, we question her about her favourite vacation she has spent and her favourite food; she quickly mentions” All my vacations are good and I cherish each one. They all form a rich treasury of memories whether they were the ones spent with my cousins and aunts as a child, vacations with parents, or the ones with my hubby and children. We all love to travel and to pinpoint one is difficult.
My favourite food is dal, chawal, alu-deem sedhdho( mashed potatoes and eggs) with some ghee is my comfort food, I can eat any time, any day. Other than that biriyani, pasta, and everything sweet is always welcome.
When The crazy tales, asked her if she had any crazy or influential incident which brought a change in her & would like to share with The Crazy Tales? she quickly replied “ my grandmom’s life every chapter of her Mrs Shobha Banerjee’s life has influenced me. She was a self-made person, and did her bit for the betterment of the society, and saving nature. Maharani Gayatri Devi and Kiran Bedi are the other two main influencers. I tend to seek motivation and inspiration from all around.”
