The journey in music for Smt. Kaushiki started from home under the tutelage of mother Smt. Chandana Chakraborty and father Sri. Ajoy Chakrabarty
Smt. Kaushiki remained a scholar of ITC SRA till 2004 and graduated with ‘A Top’, the highest grade given by the academy. The grade was a vindication of what her audiences already knew.
She chose to adopt the tenets of the Patiala gayaki to suit her own voice and temperament. She tempered down the strong aakars and the weighty games to adhere to a more feminine sensibility.
