India is really-really beautiful and that the more I travel, the more I love it.
However, design is not understood properly outside a limited circle within India.
I am still understood to do Fashion Design in my home-town, even after 9 years.

Design can play a role in solving some of the world’s problems.
One needs to experience design day in and day out.
You have to do what you love.
