OUR UPDATES

We want to bring you an exciting monthly update to keep you filled in on what’s been happening in the life of Offspring. We’ll give you the ‘high’, ‘low’ and ‘interesting’ moments (often very interesting), so that you can feel a part of what we’re doing. Enjoy…

* please note that all the pictures displayed are of our staff, not the trainees, so as to protect their identity.

April Update

Well…another month has flown by! But not without its exciting highs and challenging lows. I’ve been saying to people a lot lately that the more I live in between two countries, two cultures, two languages and two tastes of chocolate, the more difficult it becomes. I think it’s because this

Dear Friends of Offspring, It is the month of festivals here in Kolkata, so we’ve had fireworks going off, fancy lights up and down the street & big decorative displays sprawled across the city. On the one hand it’s been beautiful and on the other, it’s caused chaotic road situations!!
