If life were a manuscript, Purbasha Ghosh is a work in progress. The inciting incident of her story was a turbulent childhood, spent in remote fringes of rural India, where her father’s postings, took the family. Relocations and recurrent new beginnings frequently upset her emotional status quo.
In the plagiarised, messy first draft of her life, outlined according to the formulaic plot structure of societal expectations, she was an Architect and a Planner. Recently, realising the middle of her life was sagging under the weight of Corporate enslavement, she has undertaken a large-scale structural edit of her narrative and consequently, is in a state of flux. She is currently decluttering those off-the-shelf techniques and hacks, for force-fitting her chronicle into pre-fab modules of success, and intends to discovery-write the rest of her saga.
Ghosh is a solo mother, and the setting of the present act of her unfolding tale, is Kolkata.
