1) THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS? Transforming into a whole new passionate and awakened personality while finding my inner talents and interests which were earlier much subjugated. In the past few months I have worked and met incredible people, been exposed to real culture of work, started with my new projects such as Girl Up Delhi (a women empowerment club), PUKAAR (an NPO with my mother - who envisioned its creation for years).
Starting leading a more creative and empowered life while attaching a deeper meaning to everything happening around me to a reason & a destiny. . . 2) AND THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS? I have been in a constant denial of myself while attaching more relevance to what others might think. I have received criticism, lost track of when I went on a long trip to fully relax. All the negative things that have happened have somehow made me into a more bolder person as I am today. . . 3) YOUR BIGGEST WISH FOR THE NEAR FUTURE? I wish to become the best and healthiest version of myself while not loosing the very best people I have in my life. I fear that there are so many women in this world waiting for the right opportunity, and an abundance of talent - but all they have are restrictions of patriarchy. And obviously the end of the world (Hi, Climate change) . . 4) AND YOUR BIGGEST WORRY FOR THE NEAR FUTURE? That everything will eventually come to an end, with an end to our mesmerising and ever changing lives. . . 5) A CONTEMPORARY WOMAN YOU CURRENTLY ADMIRE? I have always admired my mother for the struggles she had overcome with her patience and persistence for proving that she will not be subjugated. She is the sole reason for the inheritance of empowerment in me, and of course all those women who keep up with the pace of society despite the criticism they face are definitely admired by me! . . 6) A ONE-SENTENCE MESSAGE TO OTHER WOMEN? The only thing that is constant is “CHANGE”.
