At the age of twenty one Gurmehar Kaur has already made her mark in the society as a young social activist and as an author. With a best selling book making waves and the hopes of shaping youth politics in India we wanted to know what Gurmehar Kaur does in her downtime, away from all the limelight.
Ques.1: Tell us about your life as a DU student?
Ans.1: Here is what I can say about Delhi university is that you can never know enough and there is always something or the other for you to learn from even in the field that you feel you’ve mastered. I love my time here because it’s so mentally stimulating.
Ques 2. How do you dabble work and personal life?
Ans.2: It can get a little tricky to make distinctions between the both especially when I also have full days of college to deal with and I only get weekends to devote to work. I try to take as much time out to be with friends and also take weekend trips back home to my mom and dogs. It’s exhausting but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Ques 3: What’s your favourite pastime on weekends?
Ans.3: if I’m not reading for academics or research, I like to read for fun and I’ll pickup whatever is on the best seller stands. Other than that I like to binge on Netflix and order in and if I’m feeling particularly adventurous I might go out on a Delhi-Darshan to one of the many heritage sites the city has to offer.
Ques 4: What would your ideal summer vacation be like?
Ans.4: My ideal summer vacation would be next to a beach doing nothing but napping and taking in the salty humid sea breeze and trees.
Ques.5 : Do you see sustainability as a trend?
Ans.5: I’m so glad there are so many sustainable fashion brands that are coming up. Not only is it good for the environment, they also look unique and great!
Ques.6: Will we be looking forward to another book? What’s next on your agenda?
Ans.6: Yes! I’m planning on another book that we launch in jan or feb next year and then this year I will also be sitting for entrances and applying for masters!
