“It was my 20s when I was diagnosed with severe health issues like anxiety, depression and panic attacks. This trouble-time had a deep connection with my childhood.
I share a very loving relationship with my parents. But my childhood was not a happy phase of my life. Majorly due to two sudden incidents.

When my mother went out for a job, my grandmother took care of me. As I spent a lot of my time with my grandmother, she was very close to me. At a very young age, I lost her.
