1.Tell us why anyone would want come to your hometown?
We were having a great time until the main course arrived. I ordered a dish with a lot of spicy peppers but didn't realize how spicy it was going to be. After taking a few bites, my mouth was on fire, and I started sweating profusely. I tried to keep my cool and act like nothing was wrong, but the heat was too much for me to handle. As I took a sip of water, I accidentally spilled it all over myself. I was so embarrassed that I started laughing uncontrollably, which only made things worse. My husband was trying his best to keep the mood light and crack jokes, but every time he did, I burst out laughing even harder. In the end, we had to cut the date short because my mouth was still burning, and I couldn't stop laughing. Despite the mishap, we both agreed that it was a memorable and funny date night experience.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your closet and why?
The two most important things in my kitchen are spices and the spatula. Spices because in an Indian household, different spices make everything tastier and makes everyone happy. And the spatula because it helps me to make the perfect Roti’s (Indian bread) for my family.

3.What do you love to cook and why?
Well one thing that people perceive right off the bat about me is that I must be a very serious and intimidating person. But I think one genuine conversation with me is enough to break that perception about me and actually find out that I’m the happy-go-lucky, jolly, and outgoing kind that gels along well with everyone.

4.If you had an extra hour each day, what would you do?
All the times that I had gone out and done volunteer work for the platform that I stand for I have felt most in my Power and demonstrated leadership skills in taking the same forward.

5.Describe the dirtiest job you have ever had to do?
If I had no fear, I would love to go for scuba diving. As a person with a fear of large water bodies, I feel like I've restricted myself from experiencing the magic and the beauty of the underwater world. So given a chance, I’d love to get over my fear and do underwater scuba diving once in my life for sure.
