Kanchan Bhaskar was born and brought up in New Delhi, India. She holds a master’s degree in social work from Delhi University, and a postgraduate certificate in personnel management and industrial relations. She moved to the US in 2000; after divorcing her husband in 2003, she lived in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Southern California before moving to Chicago, Illinois. She works in the corporate world, mentoring, counselling, and coaching employees at all levels in the industry. She is also now a certified advocate for domestic violence victims in the state of Illinois and is a volunteer speaker, mentor, and coach for victims and survivors. Kanchan is blessed with three loving children, a daughter and twin boys, who are well settled in their lives. Her Maltipoo, Fifi, is her companion and the love of her life. She currently resides in Chicago.
Chronicling Kanchan’s gradual climb out of the abyss, little by little, day by day, Leaving is the empowering story of how—buoyed by her deep faith in a higher power and single-minded in her determination to protect her children best—she fought relentlessly to build a ramp toward freedom from her abuser. In this memoir, Kanchan clearly lays out the tools and methods she utilized in her pursuit of liberation—and reveals how belief in self and belief in the Universe can not only be weapons of escape but also beautiful foundations for a triumphant, purpose-driven life.
