As a social and political activist, how has your career shaped up so far?
It has been great and I am happy to say that it has brought about real change in society and helped me rediscover myself as a person. As the youngest Secretary General of the Delhi Pradesh Youth Congress, I have been given responsibility that has helped me take up social service that brings real change. Connecting with people and resolving their issues is what a normal day in my life looks like.
You undertook numerous support projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tell us more about them.
I founded the India Together Foundation with the objective of extending social help and support to hundreds and thousands of people who were the worst affected by the pandemic. I and my team shortlisted certain households of hand-to-mouth workers and regularly supplied them food grains, vegetables and water. I also distributed free food packages, masks and sanitizers on a daily basis.
What plans do you have for the future?
I aim to continue doing what I am doing right now but on a much larger scale. As a social worker, I understand that my work is not limited to a few hours of the day and is actually round the clock. In the future, I want to assist more people by taking their issues and demands to appropriate authorities and resolving them efficiently.
