KAVITA BHUPTA GHOSH
My life is a mysterious forest where wilderness, danger and beauty live in perfect harmony. Wilderness in my life is the courage to experiment with new ideas and beauty lies in my inexhaustible love for teaching and writing. I am also a whimsy blogger, wary poet and a temperamental artist. And when I am not doing this – I read, do research on the scientific aspect of human behaviour, play the guitar, go walking, biking, rafting and paragliding – I love blind dates with exciting endeavours. I cook out of necessity but eat out of love. I love moonlit nights and sudden showers of rain. I am fearlessly unconventional. I represent all the characteristics of my Sun Sign – one doesn’t mess with a Taurean.
"My first teachers were my parents, who guided my first steps and words. My second teacher was Loreto Day School, where I had my first formal lessons. My third teacher was Loreto Middleton Row College, which provided me with an umbrella for the recurring monsoons of life. My fourth teacher was the enchanting “City of Joy”, where I grew up. It outfitted me with the lessons of life, including those contained in the works of Rabindranath Tagore and Satyajit Ray. I learnt to emerge in one piece from crowded buses, trams and the metro, which taught me there is a place for everyone, no matter how congested the opportunities. My fifth teachers were my siblings, whom I attempted to teach from the age of eleven and who gave me my first proletarian teacher’s training. My sixth teacher was my first job, with the Taj Group of Hotels as Graduate Trainee for Hotel Operations. It embellished my poise and personality. My subsequent marriage, my seventh teacher, taught me to bridge illusion with realism. My eighth teacher, my daughter, taught me to reprocess the elemental terminologies of parenting. My ninth teacher was certainly my experience as a teacher in six schools in various parts of India. It taught me that wonderful things in life come in small portions. Finally, my students have been my ultimate teachers. They taught me tolerance, endurance, humility and the joy of unconditional loving."
