Q Tell us little about your backstory and family life.
A My father passed away when my brother and I were very young, so my mother
and grandmother raised us. It was very difficult financially, so I knew I had to get a job
where I could help provide for my family.
Q Did you always know you wanted to work for a company
A A neighbor worked in Anuschka’s workshop, told me about the company, and
referred me to their Manager. Initially, I joined as an office pantry staff keeping the
food and kitchen areas clean, but I knew I had more to offer. I discovered what
Anuschka was all about and decided to show my sketches to Bhaskar.
Q What is your favorite part about working for the company?
A I would say it is the love that I get from my colleagues .
Q Was art something you were always interested in pursuing
as a career?
A I never took up any formal art course, but I did drawings and art projects at my
school, which was well appreciated by my teachers. Initially, I was a passive observer
to my next-door artist neighbor and he was kind enough to teach me at times. Later,
my seniors at Anuschka gave me all the necessary support and guidance to help
enhance my skill.
Q It must’ve taken a lot of courage to show Bhaskar your work!
A I was so scared and shaking, but he loved my work and saw potential in me.
He moved me to the Art Department and put me under a senior artist to learn from.
I am lucky to work directly under Bhaskar and his mother Roma Basu which has
created a deep sense of love and connection with art as well as the family.
Q How have you grown as an artist since moving into your new position?
A I am inspired every day by my seniors, the Basu family and the company work
environment. Every time Bhaskar shares his designs, I get excited because he brings
so many new ideas to the table. His approval means a lot to me. So I try to help
myself grow and learn by practicing my technique and constantly attempting to
improve my artwork.
Q How has this job allowed you to help your family financially?
A Joining Anuschka has given me a smoother life and a secure future. I can take care of my mother and brother. The Health Insurance benefits that I get from Anuschka has enormously helped me to treat my mother for her kidney problem. Being able to take care of her at her time of need makes me feel that I’m finally making her proud. I’m really thankful to the Basu family for believing in me and giving me the opportunity.
Q Any parting thoughts?
A I want to excel in this field, learn new things and paint better every day. I want
to invest more time and with my efforts and others’, I pray that the company achieves
