I am born and bought up in Kharagpur ( West Bengal ). I am the one and only child of Mr. Mrinal Kanti Chakraborty and Mrs Jayasree Chakraborty. I have completed my school days from Splendour High School and completed my 12th from Mixed High School ( E.M). Being a single child, my parents did not allow me to go out of station and continue my further studies. They wanted me to continue my further studies in Kharagpur. The education system in West Bengal University is so worse that if you are from English medium school then you have to be in the waiting list even if you get more than 70% marks not only this you have to give the staff and principle the lump sum money under the table or you should have a good political support. Unfortunately, I din’t belong from a political back ground and nor my father can afford to give a lump sum money under the table. So it was my bad luck that even after getting 82% marks in Hindi and 65% marks in English ,I did not get a chance to take Honours. I did my normal graduation from Vidyasagar University in Kharagpur.
But it was my luck that I got the chance after my marriage. Yes,it was my hubby who supported me a lot and forced me to continue my painting and other craft work.I started creating jewelry in July 2012. First I started making clay jewelry and many people liked it and that gave me a courage to create more unique designs. From July 2012 – Nov 2012 I made many clay jewelry and all those got sold out. I was very happy. But suddenly 15th Nov 2012 I was admitted in a hospital.
I suffered from Pancreatitis and had Gall Stone Operation. I was admitted in KEM Hospital ( Pune).Almost 4 months I suffered with lot of pain and trust me the pain was unbearable.My condition was very critical. Doctors did not give me a drop of water and food for 15 days.My lungs was filled with water.I took wheel chair support. I wanted to scream and cry loudly but I couldn’t because I knew that if a single drop of tear comes from my eyes than my parents and my husband will become weak. Every second I used to pray god that please stand behind me and give me the strength to bear the pain.
That time My husband, my parents, my in laws, my sister-in-laws family, my neighbours, my students, my relatives,my muslim friend Nagmana, a christian nurse and even the doctors prayed for me. Thanks to God that I got so many well wishers. Thanks to Dr Bharat Kalambe, Dr Anil Godbole, Dr Mukund, Dr Mayur, Dr shalaka, Dr Gauri and many more doctors and staffs for taking good care. After surgery I went under depression. During that period many people tried to contact me and told that they were waiting to see my more creation and that gave me the courage to create more designs.
From 2014 I again started creating unique jewelleries. Each jewellery takes more than 3 days to make. Each one is designed and handmade by me.Today more than 160 jewelleries got sold out and working alone without any group,I think it is a big achievement for me.
