Bratati did her schooling from Bethune Collegiate School, one of the premiere and oldest educational institutes in Kolkata. She graduated from the Bethune College, the first college for women in India, established in 1879. She did her masters in economics from the University of Calcutta securing first-class marks in the final examinations.
On completion of university education, Bratati was selected, among other students, by her professor Dr Biplab Dasgupta to work as a research associate in the task force of a project titled ‘Perspective Plan for Calcutta’. Her love for poetry drove her to vibrant world of art and culture and her identity began to build a new face in Bengali elocution instead of an economist.
In my school and college days, I seized every opportunity to participate in competitions that came in my way. In one such foray I bagged the first prize in All Bengal Interschool Elocution Contest for my school. I got a sense of immense pride to bring an honour for my school. I still can feel the pride and joy of that win.
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” ― Leonardo da Vinci
