(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.)
To connect with nature as often as possible. Learning something new every day. Taking a positive step toward a self-sustainable and active lifestyle.
What is your greatest fear?
Fear itself. I fear the emotion of fear and self-doubt and the “What ifs” setting in, when embarking on new journey or idea.
Overthinking, as part my job it’s important that I think through every possible disaster even before I get on it. My mind sometimes tends to go a little overboard.
Dishonesty and judgemental attitudes.
Anyone, when they are performing an act of kindness.
Sports gear and my back yard garden.
Excited and positive
Sympathy. Feeling sad for someone and not doing anything to change the situation does not make sense to me.
When I know it will calm the other person and encourage them towards doing something they have always wanted to do.
Honestly, nothing. I do love the way I look. Every scar, stretchmark, crinkle and wonky finger has a funny story or a memory with it.
A sense of adventure, kindness and simplicity
Same as above
“Let’s do this” and “Hell Yeah”
Adventure and entrepreneurship. I also love to create something and watch it grow.
Definitely to be able to speak multiple languages and master them quickly. The line of work I am in requires that I connect with the locals and this talent will definitely help.
The greatest is yet to come. But I also think turning up and doing what you love every day, taking it one step ahead in a positive direction and making an impact toward a better economy and social structure is an achievement.
I feel such gratitude and contentment about being a commoner, a minimalist and a traveller, that I wouldn’t change a thing. Although I do wonder about popular movie stars occasionally. So maybe that.
India, anywhere in India. I think what makes a space or geography a home is its people. For me, I have found kindness and quirk here and it keeps me going.
My time. I guard it, possess it and spend it, weighing the odds carefully.
The inability to make a choice.
What I am doing right now. Good Old Bicycle Tour Guide and travel curator.
I am told I am very persistent and I believe it’s my will power to make things work and the drive to make a difference that keeps me that way.
I love that they are non-judgemental. They let me be and love me for who I am in every way.
Who are your favourite writers?
Charles Bukowski and Hemingway
The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland
Harriet Chalmers Adams. She was an explorer, photographer and writer and went on to tell us some amazing stories in the Nat Geo magazine.
Those who are persistent and fight for what they believe in. Each and every one of those Individuals who stand their ground.
The Mad Hatter.
Nothing yet, I know I’ve tried my best. I would regret not giving an opportunity my best shot.
In the mountains, outdoors, anything but staring at a ceiling
You begin saving the world by saving one man at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics. – Charles Bukowski.
