‘The Little Prince’ 

“I used to read a lot since I was a science student. I have started reading again and enjoy works by different authors. A book that has really stuck with me and left a deep impression is ‘The Little Prince’. It’s still one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read.” 


Tumling and Sandakphu

“I love travelling. When I was a child, we used to do a lot of treks. My favourite places then were Tumling and Sandakphu. I still want to go back even though I have been there thrice. Generally, I love visiting places which are scenic and are less crowded.”


Jacob Collier

“Jacob Collier is an English singer and multi-instrumentalist. He is one of the most talented musicians I have come across.” 


My Mother: Nipa Gandhi

“My mother, Nipa Gandhi, is my biggest inspiration. I don’t say this enough to her, but she is the most incredibly balanced multi-tasker I have ever come across. She is effortlessly graceful and an amazing human being.” 


Dal chawal

“I am a big foodie and I love food that is flavourful. My all-time favourite is ‘Dal chawal’. I also like Thai cuisine and sushi.”



“The company I keep encourages me to watch a lot of good content films. The film which I watched recently and absolutely loved is ‘Joker’. Joaquin Phoenix’s performance was outstanding.”
