Dr. Purnima Kulkarni - Beyond the Dream

"I had a dream. This dream would often flash in my inward eye reiterating that one day I would teach, train and transform the lives of students by adopting quality initiatives in higher education. Yes, I had a dream. A dream of writing and curating spiritual books and sculpting the minds of aspiring authors.





I lived my dream when I resigned from St. Mira's College for Girls, Pune after ten years of dedicated service. Yes, I chose the road less travelled, and that made all the difference. I could easily continue with my government job and earn a handsome pay packet, but I took a risk at the peak of my career. In 2016, I started my own Institute called Discourses: A Centre for English Language, Literature, Personality Development and Creative Writing. I received enquiries from all age groups.

My mother, Rani Trivedi, the Former Principal of J.N.Tata School, Nagpur, also joined Discourses as the Senior Teaching Facilitator. It was heartening to see homemakers, working professionals, and students attending classes with elan. They gave excellent feedback about our innovative methods in teaching English and appreciated our indefatigable efforts in enhancing the linguistic competency of the students.

During the nationwide lockdown, I thought of publishing my write-ups and poems.

My Anthologies of Poems: Assorted Plumerias, Permutations and Combinations of Love and Autographs from Heaven received great love from the literary circles. Then I came up with my dream project... Krishnashtak Anthology: A book celebrating eight aspects of Lord Krishna. I was overjoyed to interview my Mentor, Dr Nitish Bharadwaj, the veteran actor who played the role of Lord Krishna in B R. Chopra's Mahabharat. I was buoyed and privileged to publish his interview in Krishnashtak, researched and edited by me and my literary partner, Shri. Anoop Pandey. Krishnashtak was released by the General Manager of Western Railways, Shri. Alok Kansal in the presence of illuminating personalities from the Film Industry, Dr Sandip Soparrkar, Model Guru, Sonia Mayers and Thespian, Shri. Abhijit Lahiri. The book reached the renowned filmmaker, Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi and spiritual leaders from ISKCON Juhu and ISKCON Girgaum, Mumbai.
