Baisakhi Saha

Baisakhi Saha was born in Kolkata; she grew up in different states of India, each with a distinct culture, custom, costume, creed, color and cuisine, so it felt as if she was always in a new country! Her childhood was thus a preparation for what was to come in adulthood. Multilingual, she speaks six languages. A globetrotter, at the tender age of 17, she left India having won full scholarships to study abroad in Singapore. Since then she has not just traveled, but lived in different countries across the globe, spanning five continents on various student exchange programs, studying life through diverse mirrors of reality. From Asia to Europe to Africa to South, Central and North America, she has lived with local families, eating their food, adopting their lifestyles, contributing to their economy, living their culture, navigating extreme realities and harsh conditions, perceiving diverse traditions and religions, for several years to find answers to life's most pertinent questions.
