1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
"Be the Change you want to see in this world", said Mahatma Gandhi. I have changed and skilled myself in innumerable ways to cope and step up to life's challenges and applied change positively and in a gentle way. I have shaken the world around me in a small way spreading positivity and social awareness.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
A dedicated physician. A fun loving family man who loves anything and everything about family and medicine. A great cook when he gets time off. A traditionalist American with roots in India. Sincere, supportive and a loving critic. Perfectionist to a T. Doting father to both our boys and our Shihtzu Copper Boy. He is the rock behind my strength and passions and aspirations.
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
An afternoon with my grandparents. Listening to stories of a village over a cup of lemonade on a hot sunny afternoon in the open verandah with my grandparents at teatime as they taught me how to read and write, make paper boats, picking hibiscus flowers, bonding with the matriarch who raised me; my grandmother and my irreplaceable grandfather. Wish I could revisit that memory.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
A passionate but shy highschooler with lots of dreams and ambitions. Bullied for my accent and horrible English and termed later by critics as a survivor who learnt 4 languages and a way about myself with writing and narrating funny anecdotes. Overall a high school was the stepping stone for my budding personality.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
A Picasso and a blank white board. As an art connoisseur and collector, he would cherish Picasso for a lifetime. A blank, non-erasable white board on which I can write down all his important household tasks, such as taking out the trash as a constant reminder to be with us after attending to his patients and saving lives.
