Feeling excited to share #mystory for voices without frontiers initiative, a part of #IWS_Network. I feel proud to be a part of this great group with so many intelligent, dedicated, ambitious and diverse #womeninscience #VoicesIWS
There is a woman behind every successful woman too :)
All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe to my #mother (by #Lincoln); an intelligent, strong independent woman. My parents are the protagonists in my life story. extremely supportive and let me lead my life my way.#parentslove
#knowledge; supreme form of wealth which manifolds when offered to others #momsays. I love volunteering to spread knowledge #VoicesIWS #IWS_Network @LetsTalkScience #STEM #mystory
I have never faced sexism, not in personal life or professionally. Lucky to be born in a society where woman's voice matters. my family treated me and my brothers equally. #societymatters #VoicesIWS #equality #HeForShe
My brothers and I were sent to hostels to finish our primary education. Maybe my parents wanted to keep the sibling fights away. #LOL. But it made me disciplined and organized. 7years; spent my childhood living in a dorm with friends. #TooMuchDiscipline ;P
We learn while growing up & my undergrad taught me most of the thing in my life;to cope up,to think beyong the horizon,to dress up nicely, to explore and to enjoy. It also gave me the greatest gift of life #friendship #IWSvoice
Everything that happens in life gives you an experience and you learn from it and this learning continues till we die. My best learning experiences are from my undergrad. My personality was shaped and I learnt to be confident. Thanks to my awesome frnds.
u can be good at academics but sometimes u need 2 have some extra qualities 2 stand out. I was always a good student but learning other attributes got me an outgoing student award for extracurricular activity on my undergrad convocation day. #IWSvoice #mystory #BSc #awesomedays
Mistake teaches us something. I have done a lot of mistakes in my life and learnt from them. Turning down a masters in marine biology was a mistake. I hav learnt frm it but i don't regret it. Hadn't I done that mistake, I wouldn't be here. ;) #IWSvoice #mystory
maintaining a priced possession is harder than getting it. same goes with success. I was the academic year topper for my batch in Masters, and I think in order to keep that position, I forgot to acquire the real knowledge. Got it later though #mystory #IWSVoice #IWSnetwork
I love teaching. I have some experience teaching Korean students maths and science. They were brilliant but the only issue was language. my English was a little better than theirs.😜😂#lovedit. #loveforteaching #IWSvoice #IWSnetwork
"Perseverance is Stubbornness with a purpose"-John Shipp. After my MSc, I desperately wanted to get in to research. I even volunteered for a few months to work in IISc without a pay, but the experience I acquired, got me my next research job. #JRF #IWSvoice #IWS_Network
"We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough"- Hellen Keller
I always wanted to get my PhD and tried really hard for it. From my Masters, we are only 4 people who continued to be on this path. #LoveforScience #IWSvoice #IWS_network
"having a good #teacher is the best blessing"-Anonymous. I had learned from the best while working in NISER @sushree07 @NiserBiswa @abhinav_sur. And also had learned the fact that research and having fun both can go hand in hand.

My then supervisor @PalokAich; a great scientist, teacher, guide and philosopher :), was very much instrumental in shaping my career. he has shown me the right path and guided me to join PhD in Canada. #IWSVoice #mystory
I still remember my first day when I landed in #Canada Hungry, Tired, in pain from the shoe bite but excited. Canada is cold in winter, but the people here are very warm. They greet even a stranger with their warmest hello and a smile. #LoveCanada #GreatPeople
It takes a village to raise a child. Same goes with a graduate student. Lucky to have great helpful lab mates @AmadorYalena @escape_mutant, Rasika, Juweriya. Caring and loving. #FamilyAwayfromFamily #IWStory
My greatest inspiration other than my mom, my Supervisor Dr. Joyce Wilson. Another strong, independent, extremely intelligent and smart woman. A feminist and a leader. And someone who has hell lot of patience to tolerate my crazy whacky research ideas 😜 #MyCoolProf #IWSstory
PhD is definitely a roller coaster ride with ups and downs. But if you have good friends to scream with you and enjoy the ride, then its an adventure.
learned a great deal from friends and peers. @AmadorYalena @ARINJAYBANERJE1 @Xtal_NP #IWSstory #mystory
The most important things that I have learned in my PhD are:
Be respectful towards your own self or no one else will respect you.
Ask for things which you deserve. Don't wait for someone to give it to you.
And its okay to be not okay sometimes, we are human beings.
