Husna-Tara Prakash came into the tourism and hospitality space purely by chance and ended up creating some iconic properties and experiences.
As Husna-Tara Prakash likes to put it, she was backpacking across India after finishing college when she met Anshuman Prakash, a young tea planter, fell in love and married him. They eventually acquired the Glenburn Tea Estate in Darjeeling. The rest is hospitality history. Apart from running the Glenburn Tea Estate as a boutique property noted for its high levels of customer service and attention to detail, she also pursued her passion for history by conducting heritage tours across Kolkata and Bengal. Glenburn Penthouse, a boutique property in Kolkata, with a view of Victoria Memorial to die for, followed. Currently, Husna is busy setting up the Glenburn Cafe in Kolkata, besides running an education foundation up in Darjeeling and is also deeply involved in the activities of the Kolkata International Women’s Club.
