- A brief about yourself and how you describe your personality and persona.
I am 36 years young & I take pride in calling myself as a home maker, constantly trying to nurture my nest to its best. As a child, I was brought up by my mother being a single parent amidst a joint family environment, thus enabling me to understand, respect and deal with human values, emotions, sentiments and feelings. My husband stole my heart in 2006 and since 13 years I happily let him to own it. We 2 ours 2 is the petite size of my beautiful family. As an individual person being a daughter, wife, mother, friend, I always try putting my best foot forward and leaving no stone unturned to deal with every facet of life in a coherent way so that every complexity of life is dealt in order to keep it simple which is perhaps much more challenging in todayâ€™s times. My hobbies are varied with keen interest in singing, music, travelling, exploring wildlife, making new friends all of these being an integral part of my life. Being graceful and elegantly stylish is another passion of mine which is very close to me personifying my reflection not just from physical outside appearance but also being humble, grounded, soft spoken and courteous from inside defines the inner part of me.
- Your achievements that makes you feel high.
Life is a vicious circle with a lot of ups and downs. Being able to mould myself to deal with it, small or big, in calm, consistent and with a composed character is what consolidates me to be a better person from past entering today & driving tomorrow. To be an IAS officer was my distant dream which I tried for 3 years without succeeding at it. Nevertheless it has made me a stronger person today from deep within. I am also enrolled as a FICCI FLO member who represents over 5000 women entrepreneurs & professionals. With over 34 years of experience, FLO takes part in promoting entrepreneurship & professional excellence among women through workshops, seminars, training, campaigns, and capacity building programmes, etc. Through this it facilitates women to showcase their talents, skills, experiences and energies across sectors and verticals of the economy for a truly inclusive economic growth trajectory.
- Define the true beauty.
Beauty is intangible yet carries immense adulation and captivating power to win a personâ€™s heart. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. The opportunity and ability to feel beauty irrespective of changing times defines beauty. This prestigious platform of Mrs India Queen of Substance partnered with HCWA gives me the platform to feel it better by polishing and refining myself amidst many other beautiful souls so that I can present myself with dignity to the world intending to render my best in a way which can bring some positivity and a concrete, constructive change towards a noble cause influencing the minds & lives of many.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
The family which: Laughs & Learns, Prays & Protects, Apologises & Appreciates, Dreams & Discovers, Fights & Forgives, Teases & Trusts, Gives & Grows, Believes & Belongs, Loves & Lasts forever makes a complete, healthy & happy family to me.
- What is your favorite idea of holidaying?
The family that stays together moves together. Holidays form the basis of our best stories. They are those rare encapsulated occasions when we break free from our daily routine schedules and give ourselves the freedom to focus on new journeys, experiences & exposures, being able to create unforgettable moments as integral learning scenarios through the course of life. The best holidays are those which we remember and are registered in our minds forever enhancing the bond with our near & dear ones. Being a nature lover and a wild life enthusiast, an escape with family in the form of holiday is any time an added supplement to a healthy life and a happy lifestyle.
- Why you are participating in Mrs. India Queen of Substance?
I am participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance because it offers a perfect recipe for a Queen: Take equal parts of beauty, brains and heart, mix well. Add a dash of passion and poise. Stir in confidently with a pinch of communication skills and a fabulous walk. Heat under the lights of competition. Add crown and serve others. STAY HAPPY and SPREAD JOY.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
There is bribery and corruption in every sector. People show very little respect for the environment & mother earth. Nepotism & polarisation is on a rise hindering the deserving ones. People declaring their love on the walls of buildings & monuments. Most Indian news channels sensationalize news for TRP. The traffic is insane which leaves the common man stranded for hours. People have unrealistic expectations with the institution of marriage. Dysfunctional ATMâ€™S in majority of places. What if I have an actual financial emergency? Lastly but not the least, not to forget the grief over our 43 CRPF martyred soldiers in the pulwama attack. Across the border terrorism needs to halt and having a smooth relation with all our neighbouring countries. Itâ€™s important to address each one of the above at par level simultaneously in order to make a difference.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
â€œSometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.â€ It emphasises the smallest act of will power and courage which is worth more than the greatest intention.
- What is true Sportsmanship for you?
Sportsmanship is giving 100% and the ability to accept defeat with pride and victory with humility at same level by practicing & executing it in spite of all odds.
- If you are selected as a Charity Ambassador what value addition would you like to make for our society and how?
If I were selected as a charity ambassador, it would be nothing short of a boon to me at the same time it empowers the responsibility on me to contribute towards building a better society. Charity sees the need and not just the cause. Thus this entitled platform enables me to reach out closer to the underprivileged, deprived and weaker sections of the society. Charity is the rainbow between 2 hearts sharing 7 colours of feelings such as Love, Sadness, Happiness, Truth, Faith, Secret and Respect. It would be my pride to spread & translate the beams of rainbow amidst as many as I can. Things get solved only if one gets involved and being a charity ambassador â€œWe make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.â€
