Anuradha Mondal - IDIA

Anuradha Mondal

Anuradha is a personification of resilience and steely determination. The tragic demise of her father when Anuradha was just 13 years old left her family (consisting of her mother and brother) in deep financial troubles. Since then, she has had to fight her way through many obstacles and challenges.

Her mother is a homemaker. After her father’s demise, her brother (also an IDIA Scholar this year) took on the responsibility to run their house. Together with his earnings and the interest earned on small savings in their bank account, her family of three barely make ends meet.

Anuradha is very hard working and sincere. She graduated from Kalyani Public School, Barasat. She was introduced to IDIA through her brother.

Thereafter, she was trained by IDIA’s affiliate partners, Do-Zen and LST. Anuradha aspires to be a judge to bring about change in society. In her own words, “There are families who are probably going through situations much worse. And since I know the difficulties and challenges, I want to help them. I want to make a difference.”

Anuradha secured a seat at Calcutta University, Department of Law. With this focus and determination, Anuradha aspires to study law. This young would-be lawyer is also interested in music and loves to play the guitar. With deep interest in legal research she has been a Research Assistant to Prof. Shagufta Anjum at the Centre for Excellence in Women, Child and Law, IFIM, and also to Prof. Pritam Ghosh at the Centre for Excellence in International Law and Human Rights, IFIM. She has also interned with Maya Foundation, Kolkata.
