About Me

I am a mathematics teacher and writer who is a mother to three wonderful children who are now young adults. I was born in Ghana, West Africa, had my schooling and college in India and have been living in Australia for the past 28 years. I taught in high schools for more than a decade and then began staying at home to pursue my interest in writing. I am also a translator of works from my native Bengali into English. I have had three volumes of my translations of the works of our Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore published. I also write poems and have been published. My translation blogs are:
