My interview at Curious Hounds

Trust an interviewer to string a series of vignettes to form a cohesive and interesting story. Feeling really elated today to have my interview published in #CuriousHounds, an online magazine that explores unique ideas. Through this interview, I got a chance to look back on my service of 23 years and the efforts I made to diversify my work, and in service of a cause that I believe is extremely important, that is reinvigoration of children's interest in Hindi, as a language rich with culture. This gives me a deep sense of satisfaction, which is what has made every effort worth it.
पीछे मुड़कर देखा, मुस्कराकर सोचा...
चलना ही जिंदगी है, चलता चल मुसाफ़िर।
