“Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are dead”
Those who depart from this world without knowing who
they are or what they truly desire, have no freedom here or hereafter.
But those who leave here knowing who they are and what they truly desire, have freedom everywhere, both in this world and the next.

Mumbai, India was my birthplace and home for a few years, until my family immigrated to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where I lived until I was 18. I moved back to Mumbai to pursue my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. It was at this stage of my life journey that I discovered a big part of myself, having to function and live independently in a city that was alien to me, especially after a sheltered life in Dubai. It was a challenging experience and a defining phase in my life, and I cherish every part of it.
