“I’m from a Navy family, so we moved around a lot. But my favourite places so far have been Ooty and the Naval residence in Mumbai. Ooty has been beautiful because of its lush valleys, waterfalls, witnessing wild elephants in the neighbouring hills; but even in Mumbai I was always around nature. I lived in a residential area that was beautiful and cared for by the community.
When I was a kid, my dad used to take my sister and I to his ancestral village in Haryana in our summer vacations. We would uproot carrots from the ground, pluck sugarcanes, swim with buffaloes in the little ponds there and even ride on tractors. Honestly, exploring so many different parts of India was the best thing about my childhood.
