Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: Winning the Tata Academic Excellence Award during my graduation.
Q: Where do you see yourself in next five years?
A: I would love to lead my own digital marketing company and be a role-model for my employees.
Q: One thing that is on your bucket list.
A: I am fond of travelling. I would definitely love to travel to ten countries before I turn 30.
Q: Which scientist or technologist would you want to travel with on a long flight?
A: I would want to travel with Tim Berners-Lee and know more about his famous World Wide Web invention.
Q: What’s your best childhood memory?
A: Reading adventure and mystery novels by Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and Agatha Christie.
Q: What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen recently?
A: I read an article about a man in Hyderabad who is making fuel out of plastic and is selling it for Rs 40/ltr. Plastic recycling is one of the major concerns and something like this might be a great initiative for better environment in the future.
Q: What is the one packaging trend that you hate, which everyone else loves?
A: Cut pieces of fruits and vegetables are being sold in retail stores. It might seem fancy and also has the ease to be eaten directly, but selling them in these plastic trays wrapped with cling wrap increases unnecessary plastic consumption.
Q: Would you rather be like Einstein who is good with numbers, or Shakespeare who is good with words? Why?
A: Shakespeare. I have always been more inclined towards literature and poetry.
