As Bratati puts it, her passion and her profession are one and the same. Cultivation of poetry, new experiments and innovative projects are parts and parcels of her life. She has been successful in sparking interest in poetry in youngsters.
Bratati has never secluded her in the ivory-tower. She is a sincere humanist and a loyal altruist instead. She conducted a workshop with the inmates of the presidency Correctional Home, Kolkata, few years ago. It was one of the first moves of the correctional therapy, a unique project taken up by the West Bengal Correctional Home Services.
Creating new paths is never without challenges. Pioneers are always questioned, criticized and debated upon. Bratati is no exception. But it is this ever stirring emotion that keeps her going. These refresh her and let her reinvent and rejuvenate her work.
Her journey is far from over.
Be it a makeshift pandal of a remote place or a state of the art auditorium in a mega city where I perform, be it common people or elite audience for whom I recite, I always rediscover myself on the stage. Life is a pilgrimage for me; it has strengthened my faith in human beings.
I am fortunate enough to have support from my parents, relatives, friends, colleagues, students and well wishers. Everyone is a part of my odyssey.
For poetry was all written before time was, and whenever we are so finely organized that we can penetrate into that region where the air is music, we hear those primal warblings, and attempt to write them down, but we lose ever and anon a word, a verse, and substitute something of our own, and thus miswrite the poem. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
