A movie that inspires you…
Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark for Indiana Jones. He did the right thing at the right time in the right place, which made him victorious.

…and a song?
Aashayein from the movie Iqbal. It is on achieving something in life, regardless of the difficulties.

When anxiety sets in?
I look at the bigger picture and realise that the present setback is temporary. Talking to people I trust is also very helpful.

Other ways to de-stress?
Running has worked best. Though I started only a few years back, it has been an overwhelming experience. It has made me more disciplined and simple in my living.

Lowest point in your life? How did you deal with it?
One of my family members had been diagnosed with a dangerous medical condition. Those were the hardest days of my life. Thankfully, our family came together, this helped us stay optimistic and the danger has since passed. 

An anecdote or lesson you’d like to share?
When under stress, it is important to share your feelings and thoughts with people you trust. It helps you see different perspectives, broadens your thinking and increases your chances of finding a solution.
