14 Year Old Souraj & His Supermom Proved Nothing is Impossible Through Their Indomitable Spirits

Parenting is a difficult task , everyday is a new challenge. You discover new avenues, face unexpected horizons and yet decide to brush away all the hazards and continue the journey of motherhood like a pro.

And one such pro in the journey of motherhood is Sudeshna Chakrabarti, a strong spirited lady who has lived beyond all the inhibitions, being the mother of  14 year old son, Souraj , an autistic kid ,who also happens to be a brilliant  baker.

How Did She Tackle The Society’s Curiosity?

When asked that how did she manage to escape the raised eyebrows of the society she nailed it saying, “ I just don’t care what people have to say about my son . Let them keep their valid opinions in their pockets.”

Sudeshna is a woman who inspires us to the core. She never wanted to be someone to be sympathised with. All she wanted an all-inclusive space for Souraj and herself in the society.

Recalling one past incident on this, where she went to a café, with her son and a group of women started gossiping about him. She noticed that and told her son to greet them and then smartly answered their gossiped about queries.

Sudeshna smartly stated that Souraj is just like any other normal kid posessing some different abilities known as autism. In case they want to get more information regarding this they may Google it.

Now that’s what we call a smart SuperMom who knows how to handle these gossiping aunties.

But Was It An Easy Journey For Sudeshna?

Just like any other mom, it wasn’t initially easy for Sudeshna. At first when she came to know about his problem Souraj was two and a half years old. Sudeshna was practically clueless. She came to know the term for the first time. But, she was determined, no matter to  what extent she might need to go, she will always be there for her son and promised to give him a wonderful childhood.

However it is this repetitive nature of Souraj was something that worked in his favor. While Sudeshna was trying to explore what could actually work out for Souraj, she started noticing Souraj’s eager interest in Sudeshna’s culinary skills.

How Did Souraj Become A Baker?

“ He used to be very much repetitive , annoying and nagging at times. Whenever he asked for something, before the word fell from his mouth, he wanted that to be in front of him. I had lots of patience,but at times I too got irritated  and but I never gave up”.

One thing which she noticed about Souraj is that he was a very good observer, specially when she used to cook. He would follow every minute step , and would recall sequentially. And Eureka! Sudeshna now knew what actually aligns with Souraj’s interest.

Previously she had tried many a times to explore his interest or passion by introducing him to art, music ,yoga but he never responded so diligently. Now seeing Souraj’s knack she took it as golden opportunity to make it a turning point of his life. Souraj initially starte with easy flame less recipies, which he prepared flawlessly.

Using a gas stove or flame was strictly a no no ,as it might cause any accident , moreover it may shatter his confidence. So, Sudeshna thought of introducing baking cakes for him, and involved him too. He actively participated and wanted to bake more. Seeing him so much enthusiastic, Sudeshna  tried to write the entire recipe in a pictorial format to nurture his interest and make his comprehension easier.

Gradually  he became brilliant at it, and to make his culinary skills polished she sent him to bakery classes to make sure he learns to follow instructions given by others too.

Baking a cake certainly assumed to be Souraj’s biggest passion. After mastering these skills, this rocking mother son duo opened a Facebook page named Chef Souraj and started taking orders and yes they are now getting a huge response with a bunch of satisfied customers.

“ The main thing is acceptance. Once you start accepting your situation then you must be able to understand your child’s ability in a better way. The more time you spend regretting, the more you will miss the beautiful moments of life. It might sound cliché, but stop asking yourself why me? Instead challenge the obstacles and say try me, I am prepared for everything.” Says Sudeshna.

As a Mom, when we lose at maintaining patience and multitasking, this supermom is fighting all the odds with an indomitable spirit and perseverance.

Sudeshna says , “ Whether your child is normal or differently abled, do not force or push them into anything. They are like tender buds,let them bloom on their own”.

While the current scenario everywhere is that we see parents pushing their kids to live upto their expectations, Sudeshna stands out of the crowd. According to her, one must not try to compare their kids with themselves by saying how can he/ she can’t do this when I was a pro at it in their age. Instead treat them as an individual.

Teach them as a professional without being emotionally bothered with their failures. Let them self explore themselves, then only they will shine on their own.

This was the story of  the inspiring lady, Sudeshna who is planning to give a broader spectrum to this baking passion of Souraj,   so that it may reach to many such Sourajs out there and help them to inculcate their hobbies into professions, chanelling them to their source of happiness.

Kudos to you lady, more power to you.

This Single Mother Did Not Give Up At The Most Difficult Times And Now She is A Successful Entrepreneur

Meet Sandita Dasgupta!

She is a teacher, she is an amateurish singer, an entrepreneur, a multitasker, but above every role which she plays she loves to be known as Ritobroto’ s mother. She is a single mother of a 10 year old champ and is bringing him up  fulfilling all his desires with the best of her abilities.

She has gone through a failed marriage. While many other chooses to live their entire life adjusting and blaming their fate she chose to overpower  her fate and write the story of her life . Let’s hear her inspiring story.

Tell us your journey as a single mother.

I got married in 2007. It was a love marriage. I knew him for almost two years before getting married. But after few months of my marriage things were not like before, it turned out to be different. He started fighting and quarrelling with me on trivial issues. Gradually things started becoming more worst. I kept on trying my level best and always took the initiative to sort them out, but it was not fruitful. In the meantime I was blessed with a baby boy on 2009, I was struck with a ray of hope , thought of forgetting the past memories and dreamt of having a beautiful family life. But it was a nightmare. He used to be drunk everytime returning from work and started abusing me both physically and mentally in front of my kid.  We used to live with our in laws,but no one protested. He had no attachment with my kid, seldom did he look for his needs and requirements. His abuses went on increasing. In the meantime I spoke to my family,they told me to have patience and wait.

Back in 2012,when my kid was almost 3years old,one day he started hitting me in front of my son, he was in state of shock, afraid, and traumatized. Right at that point of time, I have walked out straight from that house and never turned back. Later on  continued with the legal procedure,of taking the custody of my child. I haven’t taken any alimony as I was determined that I will raise my child without seeking anybody’s help.

How did you deal with it initially?

Both of us we were intimidated by his presence. Although we were  unaware about what to do next still we were happy we with our decision.

Apprehension was there,about our society,relatives, about how will they gossip about us and might mistreat my son. But, instead of living every moment under threat I chose to move out. I was pretty sure of what I can do, had faith on my abilities, and my degrees. Only one thing which brushed my mind is that my son could not grow in that unhealthy environment.

Who was your support system throughout?

Undoubtedly my family, my parents, my brother his wife  and now of course my son. Initially they were also in a state of shock but they always respected my decision and gave me moral support. I used to leave my son with them and go out for seeking jobs at various places. They used to take care of him all day long. As of now, my son has become their entire world.

What were the problems you had to face?

By God’s grace I didn’t face any  such bashes from the society nor from my relatives. Actually wheather anybody gossiped about me or not I didn’tcare my only priority was my son and his well being. Initially before I got my job I was a bit frustrated and de moralised, I needed some financial stability, so I used to  do a lot of private tuitions. After getting my job in a reputed school nearby there was no turning back.

When did you think of Giving Wings To Your Dreams?

From childhood only I was very much keen about painting and singing. Art and painting was my passion .After getting the job life was stable still sometimes I had to think twice before fulfilling small small wishes of my son. So one day I thought why not turn my passion into my profession?

Back in 2016, one fine day I was scrolling down Facebook and saw some handmade jewellery page. I got very much interested,and thought of starting the same. Started with a meagre capital in hand,I have made only 35 pairs of earrings . I have showed them to my colleagues and relatives . Within a week all got sold.

My designs were liked by all and they told me to bring more of them and pre ordered too.  This gave me a lot of boost and motivation,and I seriously made my mind to sell them professionally. Gradually I opened a online jewellery store to outreach more people. Since my jewellery were unique and available at affordable prices I was getting a lot of positive feedback and number of my customers started increasing.

I didn’t stop over here. I have decided to broaden my horizon by making hand painted saree and dress material which also gained popularity among my previous buyers as well as new people.

Recently in 2019, I have opened my own boutique store,which is running successfully by God’s grace and I am now investing maximum time into it. All these were not possible without my family, friends, colleagues, and my well wishers.

What are your future plans?

My biggest priority is to raise my son as a well educated and most importantly into a good human being.

I am also planning to open couple of branches of my boutique to increase the reach of my products. Already I am Shipping my products throughout India and now shipping beyond border are on the cards.

What is your message for those women who are still adjusting in a failed marriage?

Throughout our society we see women being dominated and threatened.My message for those women is that come out of your cocoon and make your own identity. If you are not happy then do not live in  a life just being someone’s wife. Don’t spent your entire life under threat and dominance. Be self dependent . Love yourself, cling on to your passion. There is only one life so live it to the fullest.
