PERSONAL I am a person of inquisitive nature, research and exploration thus come handy to me.
Getting to the depth of any subject is what drives me. I like travelling to off-beat
locations and discovering new culture and traditions. I am a movie buff and comedy
enthusiast and I often indulge myself in creative writing which helps me broaden my
imagination and perspective in daily activities as well as academics. I also believe in
gender equality, and have been conducting group discussion sessions on the subject in
schools and regarding women’s rights and on health and sanitation with the assistance
of the Nagar Panchayat of Kharod, Chhattisgarh, which is my native place.
