Our Student Success Stories: Udita Chakrabarti, queer activist, feminist and former lawyer with an active interest in humanitarian causes

When Udita first contacted us in 2014, she had already finished a BA LLB from Calcutta University and was working as a lawyer for two years.

Fresh hand-made options were just not there; we wanted to elevate the way we use breads, in terms of flavours or ingredients.

Student Success Stories: Hitesh Tekchandani aka The Salsawala

When Hitesh Tekchandani aka the Salsawala came to our office in 2009, no one could think that this will be the start of such a success story.

It was not easy convincing his family, as after a degree in BCom he was expected to build a career in business. With his determination he broke all conformity and decided to indulge in his passion by pursuing a degree in dance. With support of his mother he realised his dreams, studied a BA in Dance at the University of Surrey, UK, and returned to Kolkata to share his fascination with others. […]
