‘I just want to work for a better tomorrow by creating my own identity’ – says the unapologetic 26 years old Bindita who is now working as a content marketing professional at the Asian College of Teachers. Her list of credentials and identifications is prolonged and she wants to keep up a low key profile by not sharing too many details of her hush-hush works. She wanted to ascertain herself as a prominent writer, therefore, she chose her hobby as her off-beat profession by breaking the conventional attitude as she says writing is her passion.
Well, Bindita has completed her Masters in Mass Communication and Journalism from Tezpur Central University in 2016. While studying English Honors from Radhamadhab College of Arts and Commerce, she wanted to work in the print media sector. With hope for good career opportunities, she landed in Kolkata in 2016 only and started her career by following her dreams.
She started her official career as technical support of HP India at Wipro Kolkata, though that was not planned. Then she entered the world of Digital Media and worked as a content writer at Jupiter Infomedia Private Limited. After working with them, she is currently working as an Executive Digital content marketing professional at the Asian College of Teachers. She has also worked for some international companies as a freelance writer like ‘compustores’ along with many national companies like ‘vayu travels’, ‘ellora exim’ and so on. She is also set up for starting her book and has opened a YouTube channel of her own.
The former volunteer of CRY (Child Rights and You) also maintains a profile in India’s leading citizen journalism platform Youth Ki Awaaz where her write-ups are being published under the different sections for their distinctiveness and superiority. Most of her articles deal with the unspoken issues of North East Assam and Human Rights. Recently her report on NRC issue has been appreciated widely which made her one of the Top Writers of Youth Ki Awaaz 2018. She believes in hard and smart work rather than just being lucky. She calls herself an Unwanted Socialist and went to jail once as she spoke against one of the alleged politicians in a burning protest in her hometown.
Awards and Recognition
She is the winner of the Short Filmmaking Competition (The Bindi Project) organized by the 1st Anuvad Translation Festival 2016 in Assam. Her short movie “The Transgression: Saga or Ease?” has been selected for the 6th Kolkata Shorts International Film Festivals Kolkata 2017. Her articles have been published in jagoroniya.com and in induswomanwriting.com too. Recently she bagged the award of 2019 Barak Valley Achievers Award for cultural activism and currently working with 2 NGOs for the underprivileged street children and deprived people.
Bindita comes from a very ethnic community of India, Bishnupriya Manipuri, her birthplace is Silchar and currently living in Kolkata. She had to go through a lot of impenetrabilities, problems and hardships as SPEAKING UP AGAINST THE Prejudice are not at all an easy work but she never gave up. She is a happy go lucky girl with an ambition of becoming an author in the future.
