Women’s Life Link would like to introduce, Priyanka Chakraborty. We met via the web some months back and have kept in contact ever since. Priya (for short) has recently launched her business, Craft Vogue, that bridges a rich past to a green future with a range of exotic fashion accessories, jewelry, and home décor items. Her products are made from environmentally friendly materials and are crafted by skillful, traditional artists from rural India. Read on to learn more about this interesting woman!
WLL – Who is Priyanka Chakraborty?
Priya– A simple, small town girl who wants to achieve something in life so when she looks back at sixty years of age, she is a satisfied person.
WLL – What is your life focus at this time?
Priya – To take my ambitions to the next level. I have started with a small dream and am now working toward fulfilling it. While doing so, I also want to hold the hands of the people around me and help them in every way I can.
WLL – What teachings from your family and culture have influenced you the most?
Priya – I have learned one thing from my mother; I strongly believe in it. Do your best, and God will do the rest. We should always keep doing our duty toward ourselves, our family, and society – selflessly and without worrying about the outcome. If your intentions are correct and you are working hard to achieve something, you just need to have faith. God is watching every one of us, and He will surely do your efforts justice .
WLL – If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Priya – If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go on a Sea Voyage around the world with my husband. We both love to travel and would like to do this one day. The world is not just places like NY and LA; there are so many untouched and unexplored beautiful lands to take your breath away. I would like to visit such places someday.
WLL – What is your best beauty advice?
Priya – In our day to day busy schedules, we women hardly have time for ourselves. All of our time is spent either running after our kids, attending to the needs of our families or working. At the end of the day, we are a tired lot and have no energy left for ourselves. My best beauty advice is to keep at least 2 hours for yourself every week (not every day, since I know that is not practical for many) and take care of your body. This is not to attract compliments from your friends and family but to make yourself feel good when you look in the mirror. 🙂
WLL – What is your best health advice?
Priya – My best health advice is to drink at least 2 liters of water every day and exercise regularly. Exercising not only keeps your body fit but your mind also . Exercising in a social group is even better since you get to meet and interact with many different people and build your own small social circle. If you don’t have such a group in your locality, try engaging a friend or your partner.
WLL – How do you deal with stress?
Priya – I take a hot shower; go out for a nice dinner complete with a movie; and I get some good sleep. If possible, a massage also does wonders for me.
WLL – Describe a perfect day.
Priya – A perfect day is spending some quality time with my husband, having fun together cooking in the kitchen, and then have a nice evening out.
WLL – What or who inspires you?
Priya – My husband is my biggest support and inspiration at the home front. Outside, every women who does or has achieved something for herself is my inspiration.
WLL – Do you have any regrets?
Priya – I don’t think so. I am happy for whatever God has given me to date and am very thankful to Him for that.
