Although French, Kalki was born in Auroville and has an uncanny South-Indian twang. “I grew up with a French and Tamil background”, she explains. “I went to a British school in Ooty. So I grew up with literally three languages and culture. My parents brought me up with a lot of French movies and at the same time, I’d watch Tamil films. It was eclectic. It made me realise that there’s so much in the world that there’s really no one right way. I didn’t grow up with any religion. But I went to a Protestant school, so I’d go to church. My mother is interested in Hinduism, so we would also visit temples. I’ve grown up with an open mind. (Text, Aindrila Mitra, Courtesy: iDiva, The Times of India)
