The journey becomes more beautiful when you have your family by your side to support you there in every adverse situation, Sandhya says – “she has been very lucky as her family has always been there when she needed them”. “When I took the admission for pursuing graduation in JP University, My neighbors asked my Father to start looking groom for me but my father completely denied and told me to focus on my dreams. He has always been my strength” sandhya added further while addressing to media.

Anubha Rani

I'm an avid reader, a foodie, and a movie buff; who is passionate about the positivity around us. I love to dream and convert those dreams into words. At one moment I'm inside a shell and the very next moment I'm the ferocious one. Dynamism is my forte. Apart from being a dreamer, I'm also a woman with a beating heart and a curious mind questioning traditional social norms. I'm a rebel at one moment and just opposite at the very next moment. My fuel is the smile of my son, the happiness of my family, and lots of coffee. I'm also not ashamed of spending money on buying books and to fill my (always empty) stomach.
