What inspires you to get involved in the political process?

I am very much interested in the politics since my childhood. I grew up in Vadodara, western part of India where India’s current prime minister belongs to. The culture of the area is that is a norm and expectation for the citizens to be involved in the political process since early childhood days. Everyone is taught to get involved in the political process to learn more about it and to ensure a strong democracy. Since my childhood days, I am watching the political processes taking place around me. My uncle is very much very active in politics and has taught me many ways to be a successful candidate in the political process.


If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?

There are many historical figures I would love to meet like Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, but among all of them would be George Washington. The Founding father of The United States of America, George Washington, is till date one of the greatest leaders that we have ever seen. He led the American Revolution and later, led USA into the first few years of its independence as the First President of USA. He was a visionary and he had immense vision for America which has led America to become the super power it is today.
