Kalpana is a line leader at MSA Ethos, a powerful position many times fulfilled by men. In the river in the portrait's background, a crocodile attacked Kalpana and her arm was torn into several pieces. Kalpana received critical surgery and healthcare at the hospital at MSA and was able to recover a fraction of her mobility. Coming from a family of means, working at MSA Ethos isn't a necessity for her, but rather a passion of hers to find a career in which she's stimulated and constantly learning. Her passion and desire to become an expert in an industry she loves, allowed her to overcome her fears and adversities.
