1. Tell us more about your role and responsibilities in your society?

As a citizen of the nation and an active student of a reputed college of Delhi University, I have a lot of roles and responsibilities in society. Talking of which one of the main responsibilities I feel I have towards the society is to give back what it provides me with and one of the most prominent roles is to give back the education I get. So with this, I think the work I do in an organization, TEACH FOR INDIA, helps me a lot to fulfill this prominent role in society. 


2. How challenging is it to maintain a balance between the society work and college?

Well, there is an old saying, if somebody enjoys doing something then you don’t feel that you are doing work. The same thing goes for me as well, I enjoy whatever work I do in TFI, so I don’t find it difficult to maintain a balance between social work and college. But sometimes one just gets frustrated with so much of load in the workspace and then what you need is a Sunday off.


3. As a student leader, what is the one major challenge that you have overcome?

As a student leader, one major challenge is striking a balance between responsibilities and biases. Sometimes I find it difficult to keep a balance because one needs to maintain a thin line of difference between professionalism and personal life. I strictly believe to keep these two things differently.


4. Do you feel that the current role at your society will be one of your stepping stones towards success in life?

Yes, strongly I feel that whatever roles I am playing right now in the society would surely help me as a stepping stone in my life.


5. Do you think parents’ support plays a role in deciding whether a student has an active extra-curricular life or not? What is your message to all the parents?

Of course, it does. Parents are really important in everyone’s life, but no matter how much encouragement you get from anyone, lat the end it will be we who would help ourselves, so the main support one should have is from within.
  
My message out there to all the parents is only one- give your child to make the decision of its own life, choose the path she/he wants, allowing them to flourish and making them understand failures are important in life. One can never succeed without failures.

6. What's your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?

Internships and conferences are really important to build one’s confidence. On one hand where internships allow us to prove ourselves, attending a conference helps us to learn new things, explore the world through somebody else’s lens. So in one word these both are essential milestones in one’s life.
