And she says:

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.

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don’t you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘The world according to Prerona…….’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)


  2. As of me, I believe you are bangali and it is worth to watch Bangali culture in your Blog.

    Hope, you continue you effort. It’s Best of Luck from me.
