I am simple woman who has managed to retain the little girl in her. I play different roles at different times: Starting from a Creative Entrepreneur to Writer to Housewife and a Mother. I have always retained peace and happiness as barometers for engaging in an activity or a task. I am still rediscovering myself and am thankful to all the people in my life who have helped me to bring out the hidden potential in me.

Say something about your beginning
I was a very active child during my childhood and would participate in all extracurricular activities. I surprised my teachers when I got selected in school’s basketball team-I being the shortest in height. They would always tell me that I have got a high will power and determination; both the assets which I value till now. Having my corporate experience for 19 years..and having served as senior executive in Marketing; I went on to attend an advance programme at Harvard Business School where I met an Entrepreneur into technology –Rashik. Someone in the group asked him how did he have all the courage to initiate his business…to which he simply replied: “I didn’t have a courage to work for somebody else.” This changed my perspective. I came back and called him up to ask “How to prepare a website without investing.” And rest is a history.
