Ipsita Roy Chakraverti
A devoted practioner of
Wicca, Ipsita Roy Chakraverti takes pride
in the title of 'witch'. She was born in Calcutta, spent her teens in
Delhi, and stumbled upon the occult and witchcraft in Montreal,
Canada. She returned to India and married, and continues to practice
witchcraft. Her autobiography, Beloved Witch was published by
Penguin India in 1999. She
contested the Hoogly seat for Parliament in 1998, on the Congress
party ticket, but was unsuccessful. Her campaign against witch hunts
was one of her main election planks.
