My name is Mahua Ghosh. Your next door Bengali girl with a somewhat privileged upbringing in India. I graduated with a First class degree in Masters in English literature from the University of Calcutta. Taught undergraduate in Shikshayatan college for a year and promptly got married and flew thousands of miles away to settle in the land of milk and honey!
Swaddled with a baby and 177 lb, with a body that felt unfit, with heart that was unfit to support climbing up a flight of stairs, I was 30 and my body seemed to have aged a decade more.It is then that I started Muse (My ultimate Satisfying Experience). It is a small attempt at reaching out to many of us, who have given up on their bodies and have resigned to a feeling of depression and anxiety.
A fit body and a healthy mind is possible. It didn't happen overnight for me, but it did happen. Break the cycle of depression and hopelessness and be patient with where you want to get with your body.
Come and talk to me to know about the journey that led to the transformation.
