Sushmita is a 39-year-old political science teacher for postgraduates at Jadavpur University and a social activist who lives in Kolkata. A highly intelligent woman who speaks her mind, Sushmita thrives on stirring conversations about politics, philosophy, history, life, and football. A die-hard Mohun Bagan fan Sushmita makes herself present at as many matches as she can.
A feminist and sapiosexual at heart, Sushmita is not one to be easily pleased or charmed by the opposite sex. Her sarcasm drives many away while others love her for it.
As a teacher she is brilliant at what she does and is much loved by her students, the teachers, on the other hand, don’t take too kindly of her outspokenness.
When she’s not in college you can find Sushmita at The Indian Coffee House reading a book on her tablet, one that most people wouldn’t dream of picking up.
On weekends she frequents the Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre, the Rabindra Sadan, or the Birla Academy of Art and Culture to devour art exhibitions and western and Indian classical music and dance performances. Every Sunday you can find her witty yet thought-provoking article on trending current affairs and socio-political topics in The Telegraph.
Sushmita’s ideal holiday destination is Europe, where she enjoys backpacking solo to experience the rich arts, culture, and heritage legacy.
