ASPIRE TO INSPIRE REVISITED is a collection of Editor’s Notes written by the author over the last three years, for her online venture, iSpark Emagazine, to inspire parents and children to live a happy holistic life.
The vision of the book is to tap into the inner potential of each child through their parents. In short, for parents to become their children’s ‘SUPERSTARS.’
The universe conspired for making author’s dream come true when she launched iSpark, a holistic happiness studio for parents and children, and also the associated iSpark Emagazine venture. The activities at iSpark increased and improved with innovative ideas and with the dedicated involvement of parents and children. Along with this she kept exploring the literary bent of her mind by penning down thought-provoking editorials for the Emagazine. The Montessori training that she received in 1996 added to this greatly.
“Having grown in a conservative Marwari family a girl was expected to get married at a fairly young age (as soon as she turned eighteen). Being the odd one out, and a person who wanted to study and do something worthwhile in life, I continued to complete my graduation in Accountancy Honours from Kolkata. Fighting against many obstacles, I emerged to be the first girl who had graduated in the entire Kanoria family, with a desire to continue my studies further. Marriage gave me an opportunity to study further and identify my passion of working with children. I completed my International Montessori Training from an Institute in Kolkata which had direct affiliation with the London Montessori Centre. It was a one-year extensive degree course with serious studies, many projects and essays to be written. I enjoyed every moment of it and excelled in all the subjects.”
