This post is completely personally experience, which proved Design Thinking or the creative process that helps you design meaningful solutions in day to day life can make things wonderful in life.
Design thinking is a practical approach to solve a problem in a more creative, with the intent of an improved future result. In this scenarios, we had to tell our end user the interviewer about our problem as well as highlight the social issue in a more fun way as well as showcase Ananth's analyzing capacity, since it was achievable though data visualization it can be regarded it is a form of solution-based, or solution-focused thinking. This approach differs from the analytical scientific method, which begins with thoroughly defining all the parameters of the problem in order to create a solution. Design thinking identifies and investigates with both known and un-known aspects of the current situation.

I wish more people could adopt "Design Thinking" in day to day life time in offices, homes, society and make the world a better place to live
