Manaswini has lived away from family since the age of eight at boarding school, college, and then for work. This made her discover love from a deeper depth than mere attachment. Growing up with people from various groups taught her empathy. In college, she was able to use this learning to inculcate change as a student council representative and a peer educator. She finds calm in watching the different palettes of the sky as it paints itself. Nature has nurtured her in many ways, and she has always been in awe of the enticing things within it. She loves to talk at lengths about food, especially momos!
