(The Proust Questionnaire is a questionnaire about one's personality. It has its origins in a parlour game popularized by Marcel Proust, the French essayist and novelist, who believed that, in answering these questions, an individual reveals his or her true nature.)
A state of mental balance which I believe is achievable when you have your closest family and friends with you to enjoy and wholly share in your experiences.
Losing a member of my immediate family.
Being impulsive and naïve at times.
Deception and taking pleasure in pulling others down.
My dad – for his perseverance and commitment to family. And Elon Musk – for his ambition and grit to make the impossible, possible.
Shopping and travelling! What’s life without the two!
Emotional and determined.
Frankness to the point of being rude.
I guess it is okay to tell a white lie if it helps make someone happy in the moment without having to face dire consequences in the future.
I’m happy in my skin but if I had to change one thing, it’ll be my height (my entire family is tall - so I am the anomaly).
I’d rather spread love and believe. It’s best not to surround yourself with negativity as far as possible.

Having the strength to stand up for themselves while being compassionate in doing so and being kind to other women.
Are you serious? , Oh god!
Undoubtedly my family as a unit which is my biggest support system – my mum, my dad, my brother and more recently my husband.
To be able to act – I think it can be therapeutic to get lost in another world for some time.
Not to care about what people say!
I believe I am yet to experience my greatest achievement but it would look something like this – being immensely successful at doing something I love while having a healthy family that is always laughing. If I can achieve this, I will rest knowing I’ve done right by myself.
Richard Branson – what’s not to like about his life?!
Where in this aspect is not a location for me. It’s where my family and closest friends are

I can’t seem to find that one thing that ranks above the others as my favourite. Let’s hope I find it soon!

Loyalty, warmth and really being there in one’s hour of need.
I unfortunately don’t read much anymore however I used to love getting lost in Jane Austin’s and Charles Dickens’ novels back in the day.
Superman (BUT only when he is played by Henry Cavill).
My brother is my hero – he is the kindest, most caring soul I have ever known and I know that as long as he is around, I will be cared for and that’s what makes him my hero.
Deepu – only one friend and close family I’ve grown up with call me that (it reminds me of home).

The journey to my maternal grandparents’ home. So nostalgic!
I’ve learnt that there is no distinct black or white in life. Most of life is comprised of shades of grey and the fun is in determining which shades of grey suit you and make you happy – the world really is my oyster!
