Q.1. Were you expecting such a phenomenal score in your class XII Board examinations?
Ans. I did have high hopes. Yes, I knew I had worked hard.

Q.2. Whom/What do you attribute your success to?
Ans. There was no one particular person, or thing, but, without my teachers, family and friends I would not have achieved this much. My family has been my guiding light. My younger sister, especially, pushed me forward. My parents never let me lose sight of my goal

Q.3. What was your plan of action as schedule for preparation during the examinations?
Ans.: There was no specific schedule, really. It was just regularity, being regular truly helped me. But I never gave up on my love for comic books, even during the exams. It was a work of careful balancing.

Q.4. Most students absent themselves from school to attend coaching classes – Do you think this is the right approach?
Ans. Absolutely not! Schools are an important part of every student’s life. What is taught in schools cannot be substituted by either self study, or coaching classes. Coaching classes are only supplementary.

Q.5. In what ways do you think your school helped you?
Ans.  My school played an important role indeed. My teachers not only taught me but motivated me as well. Without their love and advice,  i would not have come this far.

Q.6. What are your plans for the future?
Ans.  Going abroad for higher studies in an Ivy League, but my ultimate goal is Civil Services.

Q.7. Needless to say you are a role model for the students. What message would you like to convey to the young aspirants who are yet to appear for the class 12 Board examinations?
Ans. Work hard, be regular and have enough writing practice. But in the midst of this all, never give up on your enjoyment.
