Hello and welcome.
This is my attempt to my get voice heard without saying a word. Here you will mostly find me rant about the world in general.
The header picture is of NYC taken by me from a moving car as my husband and I were driving down NJ turnpike.
I am Prerona Chakravarty (Sharma). I was born in Guwahati, Assam, one of the greenest, most beautiful valleys in the world and situated in the north east of India. I went to Holy Child School Guwahati, a convent run by the Salesian Sisters, and joined the science stream in Cotton College after 10th grade. From there I went on to do my B.Tech in Chemical Engineering at the Regional Engineering College, Warangal (later renamed National Institute of Technology), and then a Ph.D. at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.
At present I work in a global company for the biopharma & energy sector.
I get mistaken for a Bengali most times (thanks to my maiden name) and although it flatters me, the truth remains that I was born to a 100% Assamese couple and cannot speak a word of Bengali.
