Opinions and musings about:
The industry that you work in: You better love what you're doing because it asks a lot of you in so many different ways.
Sisterhood (what does sisterhood mean to you now that you wish you knew 10 years ago?): There are so many thoughts and ideologies we're trying to navigate for the first time especially in the context of being modern independent women, you need each other to work all the kinks out without going crazy.
What have you learnt from disappointment? To keep moving forward
On love and kindness: Allow people to offer that kind of support to you without feeling weak or undeserving.
What’s beauty to you? I find it beautiful when you notice manifestations of emotions and experiences in objects and beings.
On routine: My mother hammered routine into me. I need those hours in the morning to collect myself, I need to be punctual, I need to focus on my work through the day and I need to get my sleep at night. Currently, all my concentration is on correcting my food and exercise and get my domestic life on auto-pilot.
On city living: I try my best to not be bogged down by the traffic, the short fuses and the expenses. I wish there were more simple things to do in Delhi that didn't involve getting a drink.
The future is: Tricky.
