Moving to literally all the 4 directions of India, me and my twin sisters, had a very great adventurous life. Since we had to relocate every 3 years, after my father posting, as sisters we never had the typical best friends and sweet home concept. Rather, this constant shifting and chaotic environment helped me to build a sense of security even in the phase of uncertainty and novelty. At present I am married and settled, in Kerala, with my husband and a 6-year-old son, completely enjoying and accepting the challenges of life.

Some people want to remain fools, only because the TRUTH requires CHANGE!” • “Scars tell the story of where you’ve been, they don’t dictate where you’re going.” Her take on mental health: Mental health does not have visible symptoms, but just a head full of darkness. No fever or rash no fractures or sprains, just a longing for something unable to explain. It is also not always our mental health that is the problem; sometimes the situation we are in also needs to change. And henceforth I believe that mental health is not a destination, but a process. It's about how we drive, and not where we are going. Also mental health recovery doesn't mean that we are done with the war, rather sometimes we do face the same problem more than once on our road to recovery. Hence recovery is not one and done. It is a lifelong journey that takes place one day, one step at a time.
