What do you believe your unfair strength is?
I believe my most unfair strength is my adaptability, or simply not being too picky. In general, the way in which I operate doesn’t require structure or strict guidelines that need to be met. I’m able to accommodate myself to the scenario at hand and adjust accordingly.
What's one life goal you have that's yet to be achieved?
For as long as I’ve remembered, I’ve always wanted a roadway named after me. My grandmother told me once when I was younger that only great men got such an honor, something that 10-year-old me seemed to have internalized for years now. Of course as I’ve grown up, I realized that this was actually more difficult than I had imagined. Nowadays, this privilege is held largely by politicians and activists of some sort; so, for the time being, even if I have to build my own street there will be a Meruva Road somewhere shortly.
Detail your most important daily habit/ritual
It may sound silly, but perhaps the most consistent daily habit I’ve maintained over the last few years has been drinking at least a gallon of water. Preserving my physical health has increasingly become a higher priority for me and I found that the most important factor for me has been my water intake. Whether it was tiredness or feeling lethargic, I found that drinking a glass of water seemed to be the cure.
