- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
My journey of life begins in a nuclear family, being the only child I was bought up with much love and care. Married to my childhood sweetheart for 17 yrs now, I am blessed with a 14 yrs old son and 9 yrs old daughter. Last 37 yrs have seen me evolved from a daughter to a wife, a daughter- in-law, a mother, an entrepreneur and a social activist. I consider myself to be a multi tasker, dedicated, determined and a loyal person.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
The biggest achievement of my life is being married to the love of my life, watching my kids grow well in a healthy and loving environment and doing my bit to help the society by teaching underprivileged children and helping them in becoming responsible citizens of our country.
- Define the true beauty.
Living with a life partner who loves you more after 50 yrs of marriage than when he first saw you, retaining the same set of friends throughout oneâ€™s life these things according to me define the meaning of True Beauty as they can only be achieved with a beautiful heart, mind and soul.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
A family who enjoy with each other, share stories, puts their vows first, earn together, play together, places family before friends, honor rituals, disagrees in private and communicates openly on all matters is a complete, healthy and happy family for me. I believe it to be a responsibility of all the members of the family to build a happy family and I consider myself fortunate to be a part of such a family.
- What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
My favourite idea of holidaying is with my family and friends. Taking a break from the daily routine and relaxing, shopping and rejuvenating, doing whatever that makes me happy and making life time memories.
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?
I always believe in the sayingâ€ follow your dreams and never stop chasing themâ€ so I am here in Mrs India contest to chase my dream and to create an identity for myself.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
The fact that everyone today has started living in a virtual world i.e. facebook, instagram, snapchat etc. than the real world bothers me the most because the warmth in relations that love, the human touch, affection is somewhere being lost in this transition. Moreover the risks involved in virtual reality applications are currently unknown and may have huge implications in the future to us. Also the alarming amount of pollution keeps bothering me about the quality of ours and our next generationâ€™s life.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
â€œYou are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dreamâ€ by C.S Lewis is my favourite quote that encourages me always.
- What is true â€œSportsmanshipâ€ for you?
Somebody who may not have gained excellence in his/her respective field but has a strong spirit in life along with cheerfulness, fair play and respect for discipline even at the time of defeat defines true Sportsmanship for me.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
If I am selected as a charity ambassador I would like to galvanize masses for the betterment of underprivileged children at the NGO I am currently associated with. I would also want to take a step in helping old age citizens in old age homes and devote as much time as possible to help them in any way possible with my new found identity.
