In her free time, she loves to do glass-painting, loves reading (mostly fiction; slow reader so takes a long time in finishing a book), listening to music (all types – Hindi, English and Indian Classical), watching plays and movies, spending time with friends, attending music concerts. Chinese food is her favorite, but she loves trying out different types of cuisines as well. Reading has been her strong passion since childhood.
