In a parallel universe, I would be: A bird – flapping my wings and soaring high in the sky.

I start my Monday by: After a relaxed weekend, it can be difficult to get back into a productive mindset on a Monday morning. But starting the work week by outlining big tasks and with a clear, uncluttered mindset helps me through the rest of the week. I usually create a weekly plan that outlines most important tasks of the week segmented day wise. The list is then prioritized by listing tasks on a most to least important basis daily. This includes not just my work tasks but also personal tasks that are to be achieved within the week. So in short, I start my Monday with a positive mindset and by prioritizing my tasks.

I spend my weekends doing: We must all remember that we are much more than just a cog in a machine. Apart from taking care of our work and family, we have our set of interests and passions as well. I feel that cultivating a hobby is a fantastic way to unwind after a long week. It also encourages creative thinking and provides a different kind of strength to be able to attack issues in the professional and on the personal front. I am a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and like to rehearse during the weekends. I also feel that weekends are good to carve out time for family and I love taking my son out for movies or just enjoying a quiet quality time with family. There are times when I do carry home my work as I enjoy doing what I do and like to catch up on things and stay abreast.

My favorite stress buster: Spending time with my son and my friend. Reading and long drives with music also help.

My biggest inspiration: I genuinely believe that ‘Inspiration’ is a necessity in life to make progress or evolve. The inspiration for me is receiving constant guidance, genuine learning and being able to develop a mind of my own. To the person that I am today, my parents are my biggest inspiration. From exposing me to books, philosophy, music, IT to giving me complete freedom to evolve into a confident person, to helping me develop an aesthetic sense and strong morals, they have constantly been my mentors, guides, and friends. Somewhere deep down I also feel inspired by ‘Lord Krishna’. The learning to be able to rejoice not just in victory but also when one fails has really kept me going. The message that his life conveys- irrespective of the circumstances faced, fill your life with love and laughter, rings in my head persistently.

My advice to the women reading this: ‘Women’ are an epitome of beauty, wisdom, and care. We have the power to nurture and our existence is based on the truthfulness of our love. We are the mammoth reservoir of power and talent and must not let anyone convince us otherwise. Trust your instinct and dare to raise your voice; carve your niche and walk your own footsteps. Love yourself and always remember- we are gifted with intuition and brain along with a heart full of love and compassion- a deadly combination that is unbeatable by any man walking the planet. So fear none and stay focused on its one life; your life - ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’!
