I am a Marwari by birth but a total Bengali at heart. My
childhood was spent amidst the lush tea gardens of Assam,
where my father was a tea planter. I worked with
him in the family business for a while, but then decided
to carve my own path.
My early childhood plays a very important role in structuring
my visions today. My early life taught me that even
if you are born with a silver spoon, you have to work towards
creating your own niche to mark that individuality.
My mother was a perfectionist, that is probably why I was
drawn to my present career as a life skills trainer.
Sonalis Cubo was born to impart knowledge and confidence
to women,corporates and children so that they
can build their future beyond academic lines. To be labelled
as a social entrepreneur is very overwhelming and
I would like to thank my dad for the same who never said
a no to anyone in need.
As I embarked upon a journey the hurdles kept coming
but I kept a comprehensive attitude of being porous to
knowledge and believed that in order to learn the best,
you have to let go of the better.
Today, married for 23 years and mother of two wonderful
children , I retain a child-like curiosity to acquire and inspire,
to grow and know, to learn and unlearn.
Where and what you are is just not your identity but your
responsibility. It’s better to jump than live at the edge!
