She belongs to a family where most of the time wants & supply chain doesn’t match. Her father Mr. Suman* Das is a farmer and daily wager by profession and the lone earner of the family. As they have very little land most of the time he works as a daily wage labourer in others’ field. Thus he hardly earns around INR 3000.00-3500.00 on an average per month. Mitali’s mother Mrs. Mita* Das is a homemaker and manages all family requirements with steep hardship.

Mitali* stays with her parents, one younger brother and a younger sister in a small mud house with asbestos roof. Since the very beginning Mitali had been an average performer as a student. Though, she keeps on putting efforts to come over her weakness. Thus she remained regular and very attentive in the classes of Nayantara. Besides she has growing interest in learning computer operations.

Being an introvert person by nature Mitali doesn’t have much interest in the games, dance or alike activities. She keeps on studying to attain her dreams to become self reliant.
