A. I became a creator to solve problems what I faced, and now I’m trying to solve the problem what others are facing.
Even when I grow bigger I keep wanting to help people with their needs, be generous in talking in DMs, RTs and comments, I want to maintain my personality on public feed, DMs and in real person same. I do not want to be a person who’ll ignore his path when he grows. I want to be like a wave and uplift everyone along with me. This is how I want to be different by being normal, kind and humane.
Q. Which book/concept has influenced you the most in how you live your life?
A. As a child born and raised in Bangalore, India, I always questioned the two sides of the coin — one consisting of people who belong to the upper class or are wealthy and the other side filled with people who are poverty-stricken, who cannot afford a better life. I was strengthened by many qualities which are vital to Indian culture, like serving without expectation and the embodiment of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam which is Sanskrit for “The world is one family,” which is from the Hitopadesha. The Hitopadesha is a collection of Sanskrit fables in the form of prose and verse that I was told when I was young. The main purpose is to instruct young minds with charitable philosophy so that children are able to grow into responsible adults. This ideology of “celebrating the giving” is endemic to Indian society, and I believe our lives have a purpose, and we are all better if we can help the less fortunate flip their coin. That is why I in, “giving without expectation”.
I have extensively shared these philosophies with people in the US when I lived there for a few years. They were really motivated by Indian knowledge.
Q. Suppose there is a big whiteboard in front of you. What’s the first line you would like to write?
A. Choose Kindness 💚.
