My Life and Career:  

                I started my dance career at the tender age of 3 yrs. I joined the institute of classical dance in Kolkata, Bharatiya Kala Kendram at the age of 8 yrs to learn the most ancient Indian dance form, Bharatanatyam (Thanjavur Devdasi style of Bharatanatyam) under the guidance of Guru Vaishali Chaudhuri (student of India’s eminent dance teacher, Guru and former head of the Dept. of Dance, Rabindra Bharati University, Late N.Pandarinathan). Guru N.Pandarinathan was himself from a traditional Nattuvanar family of Kumbhakonam, Tamil Nadu. He was the disciple of the legendary dance Guru and exponent of the most ancient Thanjavur style of Bharatanatyam, Bharatha Vidwan Kuppiah Pillai, who is regarded today as an institution par excellence for Bharatanatyam. My Guruji, Vaishali madam is a member of the prestigious International Dance Council, UNESCO, an eminent guru, choreographer and performer, Additional United Nation’s Representative in New York, U.S.A. She is the Director of Arts and Culture of Institute of International Social Development, New York, U.S.A.        

                My learning started under the strict ‘Guru-Shishya Parampara’ system (teacher-student disciple succession), which also included the orthodox system of training for teachers of this ancient and invaluable art form of India. After a six-year long tutelage under my Guruji in Bharatanatyam in the Thanjavur Devdasi style, I was all set for a public acknowledgement of my talent and years of meticulous maturing of my potentialities.

                ‘Arangetram’ is the debut on-stage performance of a classical art student, after undertaking years of training. It is a public graduation performance for any art form. The word ‘Arangetram’ is from the Tamil Language and means, ‘ascending the stage by a dancer on the completion of her training’. Many Indian classical dance forms perform an Arangetram once the time has come for a disciple. To perform an Arangetram is an old tradition, which marks the pathway for a dancer to then perform alone or be able to give training to other dancers. Once a dancer completes his/her training, he/she should have an understanding of classical music and the many aspects of dancing. Performing an Arangetram does not entail the end of a dancer’s career.  My Arangetram (the professional debut of a dancer) was happened at the age of 15. I was acknowledged and honored as a dancer, performer by my Guruji, Chief-guest, Ansu Sur (Chief-Executive Officer, Nandan, Kolkata), other delegates and media. I got the recognition to be a teacher of Bharatanatyam. I’ve also completed Masters in dance.

                I’ve got (‘Sangeet Bibhakar’, 6th year) award in Bharatanatyam and (‘Sangeet Ratna’) award in Rabindra Dance with 1st Div. Distinction from Bangiya Sangeet Parishad (affiliated to Rabindra Bharati University). I’ve received innumerous awards in the field of dance: State and District Level. Done prestigious competitions (State Level, District Level, Inter-collegiate) and stood first in those competitions. Done prestigious Dance Programmes at the eminent and well-known places in Kolkata & India.

I've mentioned some of the important performances and interests and activities .

                              I’ve completed M.A., M.Phil in Philosophy with high 1st class from University of Calcutta in Philosophy. I’ve got ‘National Scholarship’ from ‘The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India’ for doing excellent result in Philosophy. I was a part-time lecturer of Philosophy at a renowned college in Kolkata, S. A. Jaipuria College.

                              I’ve also done my graduation in Classical Music, Rabindra Sangeet, Nazrul Geeti from Prachin Kala Kendra, Chandigarh and Sarba Bharatiya Sangeet O Sanskriti Parishad. I was selected as a performer across India for the famous cultural institution of India, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Academy, Mumbai. I’ve done programmes on television. I’m an Anchor, Researcher and Poet also. Writing poetry is my favourite hobby. I’m a truth-seeker. That’s why I want to start my Ph.D. in Philosophy very soon. My preferred area of research is `Scientific Spirituality / Science and Non-duality'. I’ve got chance to go to America with scholarship for Ph.D. and Dance Programme. An eminent University in U.S.A. has selected me as a VIP Scholar. They have given me my VIP Id and Web-Page. I’m honored and obliged for that.

                              Anyway, getting awards and doing research or performing dance, music...is not the only story of my life. My life is totally different from others. My life is a story of a true fighter who never admitted defeat against bad fate.

                              Unfortunately, during my teenage, a massive leg operation (Wide Resection P.T (R) and CMP Replacement) on 22.03.99 at (M.N. Orthopaedic Hospital, Chennai) due to (Osteosarcoma (R) Upper tibia) had to be done. I was under the treatment of Prof. Dr. Mayilvahanan Natarajan (Padma Laureate, Vice-Chancellor of The Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University). He had operated my leg. Uncle is like a Living-God for me. He is my God-sent father, a representative of God. He saved my life from the valley of death! He is my savior. I couldn’t survive without uncle’s treatment, love, care. ‘Osteosarcoma’ disease is a malignant bone-tumour. It is one type of bone cancer.  This disease is very rare and only a few can survive. By God’s grace, my Natarajan uncle’s blessings, my mother’s blessings and care, Dr. Sanmoy Ganguly’s treatment, blessing, my grandparents’ care, affection, good wishes, support, love of my relatives, friends, well-wishers and due to my inner urge, determination, courage, patience, will-power and a passionate love for dance…I could survive. I had to take six cycles of chemotherapy at Thakurpukur Cancer Hospital, Kolkata for six months. Dr. Sanmoy Ganguly was my doctor at Thakurpukur. I’ll never forget his love, care, affection and inspiration. He is like an elder brother for me. He always inspired me to go on in my life and to continue dance. In Kolkata, I was under the medical treatment of Dr. Dipak Roychowdhuri and Dr. Sanmoy Ganguly. I can’t forget Dipak Uncle’s love, care, and affection. Dr. Tanmoy Das Ghose, Dr. Anirban Nandy and all the doctors, sisters of M.N. Orthopaedic Hospital…who have given their treatment, care, affection, love. I convey my gratitude to them.

                              I can’t forget them ever in my life. My doctors are like my own family members, my guardians. Anyway, doctors pronounced that dancing would be very difficult for me and no one supported me on that time. No one...Dancing was almost an impossible task for me! But, dance being my life and breath, I could continue my dance after a few months of the operation! I continued my life and achieved those awards, certificates, degrees after my leg-operation on 1999. Doctors told me that it is my new life after 1999, re-birth! Anyone can understand how tough and difficult it was for me to do all the works. My right leg was nothing but a heavy steel-made machine! Half of my leg and knee-joint was artificial! I live in a small town (Howrah) in West Bengal, India and I had to do all my works, education, lectureship job, dancing, singing, anchoring, all the programmes, library work....everything in Kolkata, which is far away from Howrah. I had no car or luxurious life. I traveled a lot by crowded bus, walking, rickshaw to go to Kolkata from Howrah. And in this leg condition, it was a very painful journey for me! The environment of my family is not at all supportive for doing educational and cultural, creative works. I’ve no resemblance with my family members. I’d done all these by myself. I’ve done this struggle because of my mother’s inspiration, help, my strong will-power, determination, courage, self-confidence, patience, hardships and of course a strong belief on God. My mother stood by my side always. She struggled a lot to give me a huge world, my dream world. She helped me a lot to enter into the world of dance and take the teaching from my Guruji. I belong to an ordinary middle-class, orthodox joint-family and the family which has no cultural background. My father was always against of doing dance, doing higher study and everything. He has no cultural background. He is a very orthodox, mediocre, peevish, narrow-minded and negative-mentality person. It was very tough for a girl like me to continue dance and travel to Kolkata from Howrah. But, for the blessing of God and my mother’s help, I could continue my dance. And my inspiration is also my Dance Guruji, Vaishali Miss. My Guruji’s love, care, blessings, teaching given me confidence to enhance my perfection of dance. Whenever I’d lost my confidence, she motivated me. Her inspiration given me extra fuel of confidence to walk on the difficult path of my life. And of course, the support and care of my Grandparents, my maternal uncles and aunts.

                              When this operation was happened, I was a school girl, just passed my Higher Secondary Education with high first division and star mark and got admission at one of the eminent and prestigious colleges of India, Lady Brabourne College in Kolkata. But due to my operation, I had to leave the college. Those days were so miserable and painful, no one can imagine! I had lost everything, my normal life, my original leg…everything! But, I never defeated. Never depressed for getting any negativity. Anyway, after this massive operation, I'd passed Graduation, Masters and M.Phil with high first class and got ‘National Scholarship’. I got the job of part-time lectureship in Philosophy at S.A. Jaipuria College, Kolkata, one of the eminent colleges in West Bengal. Side by side I was performing various prestigious dance, music programmes and competitions at the famous places of Kolkata. No one ever understood that I've this kind of massive operation in my leg, my knee is artificial! I stood first in all the competitions of dance…district, state level, inter-collegiate...everywhere. I’d represented my campus (Alipore autonomous) of University of Calcutta and performed dance on the auspicious day of celebrating 150th anniversary of Calcutta University. Even I was selected as a performer across India for the famous Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Academy, Mumbai . I struggled a lot alone to do something in life. I've overcome all my disabilities, odds and obstacles, people's negative, downward mentality, negative, unfavorable environment, all my pain, sorrow, disappointment, my disability, illness...everything by tremendous will-power, determination, positive thinking, severe struggle and hardships! I hate this word "handicap"! I never thought that I'm a disable person. Never!  Never taken any opportunity of being a disable person. Even, when I traveled by crowded bus, I never requested anyone to give me a seat...Never...I always regarded me as a normal person like others. And that determination was always presented in my mind that I'll do the best. I'll do more than any other so called 'normal person' does. Even I danced! This is a miraculous incident of Medical Science!

                              I've been doing this tremendous hardships and struggles for one decade or more! When I was doing lectureship job, studying M.Phil and doing all the cultural programmes, competitions with full swing, the 2nd disaster was happened on 2007! Due to giving too much stress in my operated leg for years after years (from 1999), my steel-made prosthesis was worn-out on 2007! I had to leave my job, my studies, my dreams, my hope...everything...! I couldn't do anything properly or go outside for a long time! Even I fell on floor and got severe wound in my worn-out leg! No one can imagine that miserable condition of my life! I was in a bed-ridden condition for one year! That time I was totally depressed ! I thought, this is the end of my life ! I can’t come back! I was spending my life like a soulless body; I had no urge of living! I asked God, why He is doing this with me? I’ve struggled enough, done tremendous hardships! When I’ve achieved something, when I’ve assembled the broken parts of my life, then why He has done this with me! I cried and cried but didn’t get any answer from anyone! Anyway, in this time also, I didn’t give-up my hope and positive thinking. My determination, will-power and positive thinking had saved me from the depression. I'd completed my M.Phil in this condition and got high first class in M.Phil. Anyway, on 2012, my second major leg operation (REDO CMP PROXIMAL TIBIA (R) on 08.05.12) was done at M.N. Orthopaedic Hospital, Chennai. This time the metal was titanium. And it was a massive operation! I’ve 76-78 stitches in my leg! Half of my leg is made of titanium metal, knee joint is also artificial. Due to my Doctor Uncle Prof. Dr. Mayilvahanan Natarajan's (Padma Laureate, Vice-Chancellor of The Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University) treatment and care, my operation was successful. All the doctors and sisters of M.N.Orthopaedic hospital, all the lovely people of Chennai, Loveina Didi and Grace Didi in Chennai helped me a lot, cared me a lot on that critical time of my life to recover from my disability, to get well soon and to stand on my feet. I'm now living this new life, my 2nd re-birth! And I’m ready to begin a new battle of life. Just after one year of the 2nd major knee operation, I performed a grand dance programme at the residence of Prof. Dr. Mayilvahanan Natarajan in Chennai. Everyone was highly surprised seeing my dance and my performance was highly applauded by the audience! According to Prof. Dr. Mayilvahanan Nataarajan and other dignitaries, resuming my dancing in this leg condition, is a miraculous incident of Medical Science! I'd also performed a grand dance programme on the felicitation of Prof. Dr. Mayilvahanan Natarajan's huge success of completing 2000 custom mega prosthesis surgeries for bone-tumour patients and got huge admiration of doctors, delegates, and media. According to everyone, living a normal life and dancing after this 2nd major operation is just impossible! But, due to God's grace, Prof. Dr. Natarajan Uncle’s care, blessings of my Mother, teachers, my Miss, Natarajan auntie’s blessings, sisters’ good wishes, good wishes of all my dear friends and well-wishers, blessings of my grandparents, my Bhagyadhar uncle’s help, love, care, affection, blessings (He is like father for me), Shyam Uncle's help, Tarun Dada’s inspirational lecture, blessing, my elder sister and her family’s constant ( Didi’s mother-in-law ) help, blessings, Rajyashree Didi and Sanmoy Da’s blessings, love and my strong determination, will-power, courage, struggle...I could dance for two hours and more!

                              Anyway, I’ve mentioned some of the incidents of my life just to inform the present condition of my life and the severe struggle which I've done in my life. Even now, I’m struggling and struggling to do something good in life. Something new, something very novel...which no one can do! I love this famous quotation of Author, Educator, Shiv Khera..."Winners- don't do different things, they do things differently"...I want to do things differently which no one can do! I’m a true God-believer from my childhood days. My studies, dance, music, my thoughts everything were based on devotion, god, spirituality. When I was very young, I’d taken spiritual initiation from Late President Maharaj of Ramakrishna Mission, Swami Ranganathananda Maharajji. Lord Ramakrishna, Mother Sarada, Swami Vivekananda, my Guru’s ideals and my deep-rooted faith on them are my inspiration of life. I’m also a great devotee of Lord Jesus Christ and Mother Merry. Due to their blessings, I’ve got the inspiration to start my new life.

                              In India, genuine talent and genuine struggle do not get any respect, recognition which one truly deserves. Most Indians neglect, insult a genuine person. That's why that person has to live an unrecognized life with painful isolation from the outer world ! I belong to a very middle-class family. My father is job-less now. We’ve no enough money for going to abroad or spending for education. My father and other family members’ opinion is that, spending money for a girl and for her higher education is just wastage of money and nothing else! My father’s mentality is very narrow, downward and stagnant ! I’ve no resemblance with my father! I’m spending my life alone! I want to leave this negative environment as soon as possible to survive myself from all the negativities! I want to go to America and start my new life there. I want to prove that a girl can go to abroad alone if she has strong determination, courage, and will-power.

                              I’ve been bearing this painful life since1999. I don’t know when this painful journey of my life will end and I’ll find a path of eternal bliss, peace, happiness. When my struggle and talent will get recognition…I don’t know! I’m a student, teacher and researcher of 'Philosophy". But, according to my view, ‘Philosophy’ and ‘Spirituality’ are not only mere subjects to do research work or to write articles. It’s more than that. It enriches our lives and thought process too. The meaning of Philosophy is ‘Love of knowledge’ and in India, the meaning is ‘Darshana’, to see the ultimate truth, to know the essence of everything, to know the inherent truth of life, universe, substance, self. That’s why ‘Philosophy’ is not only food or water to quench our hunger or thirst of intellectual, creative mind but also it’s a necessary part of our practical life too. ‘Philosophy’ and ‘Spirituality’ are the subjects of applying the concepts in daily life-struggle.
                                
                                I’ve positively applied Philosophy, Spirituality and Science in my life. This has helped me to struggle, to make my goal, to think logically, to fight against odds, obstacles, to transcend all my limitations, to acquire positive energy, power and to make myself a strong human-being, filled with humanity, freedom, ethics, divinity, emotions, truth, courage, chastity and sanctity. If I discarded Philosophy and Spirituality from my life, I could not survive. I don’t know what the final destination of my life is. But I know, I’ll not stop my life-journey…

                                In this connection, I want to add some lines of my poetry "LIFE".

"LIFE IS AN ENDLESS JOURNEY, EVERYONE HAS TO TRAVEL,

NO ONE KNOWS ITS BEGINNING-ENDING-THIS IS A REAL MARVEL!

LIFE IS A REAL STORY OF EVERYONE'S BATTLE, 

IN THE LIFE’S BATTLE-FIELD, SOME WIN, SOME FAIL! 

THIS PLAYING OF LIFE ENDS, WHEN GOD RINGS THE BELL,

EVERYONE HAS TO FOLLOW THE 'PRE-ESTABLISHED' GOD'S PRINCIPLE "....
