If you could break any world record which one would it be during this lockdown?
Aakash : Watching Youtube (Vlogs)!!

What’s a story – from a book, a movie, an article, a conversation – that you’ve been gripped by recently? Why did it capture you?
Aakash : My conversation with a room filled with silence. How a minuscule organism can restrict us from mixing with family even under one roof!

What will be your New Normal Post Quarantine ?
Aakash : A more civilized world!

Coffee or Tea?
Aakash : BOTH

What would the title of your Autobiography be?
Aakash : My Life - GyaanBhandar

What would be the most surprising scientific discovery imaginable?
Aakash : Brain - Life - Will to live - Decision power - Emotions... Neural Network, electric impulses get fired and we respond, what makes us do what we do!!??? We can deduce what was THE singularity, what would be the future of universe(s), what is(/are) universe(s) expanding into, with this magnificint Brain.. That apart, our understanding of why universe is exactly the same that we think it is? Why are things the way they are?

Describe your Quarantine with a Movie Name or Rewrite movie titles so they would follow quarantine regulations.
Aakash : 2020 - The Year the World Stood Isolated. (The Day the World Stood Still).

Do you think the situation is acting as a social leveller, or making inequalities more apparent? Is this Social distancing bringing us together since we are all fighting a common enemy ?
Aakash : Covid came, Covid is being fought but I could not sense this as a social leveler. Neither did I sense any inequalities being more apparent. To some extent, I could sense co-operation and a shift in geopolitical dynamics. I believe the only time all people, irrespective of caste & creed, nationality, race & religion, faith & belief would come together as one humanity would be due to fear and will to survive during an extinction level event!

If you could write a letter to yourself in future , what would you say?
Aakash : Hi Aakash, stay there, I am coming with my share of experiences😊

What do you hope we all learn or take away from this experience?
Aakash : Live and let live!!!

What keeps you motivated during tough times ? As a leader How would you motivate people around you ?
Aakash : Practically speaking, I have invested money in masters.... So studies!!!😅 But on a serious note, I have experienced isolation, I would like to advice stay connected with nature, embrace the positivity that nature provides!!😊

What is your Philosophy of Life for the world as an inspirational quote ?
Aakash : Be true... Worst case, you can fool the world but not yourself. If you aren't true to yourself as well, you lose self respect! And, act like humans!!! Religion and Nationality are man made concepts. We all are same blood and flesh, we all are ONE!!😊
