By Punya Srivastava
Daughter of the well-known Wiccan, Ipsita Roy Chakraverti, Deepta Roy Chakraverti discusses her life, learnings and her to-be-released book, Bhangarh to Bedlam in an interview with Punya Srivastava
The word ‘witch’ usually conjures up an image of a hag with an elongated crooked nose, ready to ascend her broomstick, when not bubbling up vicious potions in a cauldron! Or, for some of us, the word might bring up news flashes of poor tribal women from West Bengal, Jharkhand, or Orissa being burnt to death for covertly practising witchcraft.
|Like mother, like daughter: Ipsita and Deepta|
Life Positive interviewed Deepta a few days before the launch of her maiden book, Bhangarh to Bedlam – Haunted Encounters, published under the banner of Life Positive Books. The book is a compilation of Deepta’s experiences with a world beyond our perception. Here is a tête-à-tête with the debutant author where she talks about the book and the world of Wicca in detail.
