“I’ve gained a lot from this place. Experience, self-confidence, sense of security, but my biggest find here was the love of my life!
A couple of years ago, Jatra did a rapid expansion. We had 3 showrooms; two were here in Dhaka, while one was in Kolkata. In order to manage the increase in workload, we had to hire new artisans in a very short time. We even opened new departments in-house to reduce costs of outsourcing work. That’s when a new group of people joined the newly formed block-printing department. That’s where I met her for the first time.
We fell in love. When our boss found out about us, I was terrified! I was certain, that we going to be in trouble; might even lose our jobs! However, turns out our Ma’am was ecstatic about us too! She eventually got us married soon after finding out about our affair. My life has been different ever since. Different, in a good way.”
