Born in Kolkata, India on the 19th of November 1988, Indira Guha Patra belongs to a middle class but educated family. She went to Carmel Convent High School at Durgapur and then to B.D.M. Institute, now B.D.M. International, in Kolkata. She studied Integrated M.Sc in Biotechnology at St.Xaviers College, Kolkata, following which she started working as a Research Fellow at the Indian Institute of Chemical Biology. This science oriented education, however, could not suppress her creativity. She is a dancer, choreographer and well trained in Kathak. But her real passion lies in depicting reality, nature and human emotions and intertwining them with her imagination to create a rich tapestry where reality and fiction merge beautifully.
