“To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.”
I. Aditi Ramesh | Quirky. Dreamer. Composed.
Corporate Lawyer/ Singer-songwriter
“Duality is knowing that there is more than one dimension to life and that exploration is the path to live life to the fullest.”
II. Aman Wadhwa | Entreprenartist. Driven. Sociable
“Duality is efficiently balancing out the left and right side of your brain. Being an artist and an entrepreneur at the same time can be quite conflicting as they require a different thought and decision-making process. However, knowing which role to play, and when, is the key to living a double life.”
III. Armaan Kapur | Restless. Romantic. Optimistic.
“Duality for me is like everything else. No experience is ever a single sensation, no one person is a single characteristic. Talent isn’t always a single word or occupation either, so why should my life be so simple?”
IV. Ayesha Khan | Ambitious. Compassionate. Connector.
“Duality is being able to connect the dots and enjoy the process. As a lawyer with the government, I help them solve various development related problems that affect a large number of people in a way that is consistent with the law. With Ishqr, I help young Muslims solve the problem of not finding a suitable partner in a way that is consistent with Islamic principles.”
V. Chaitanya Mathur | Good Music. Beer. Positivity.
“Duality to me is getting to do what I love and loving what I do.”
VI. Komal Basith | Ambitious. Loyal. Passionate.
Entrepreneur / Boxer
"Duality is a natural and essential part of life."
“No guts no glory.”
VII. Kyzeen Lala | Cheerful. Spontaneous. Bubblegum
"Duality is life-hungry."
VIII. Parnavi Karandikar | Inquisitive. Sensitive. Keen observer.
“Duality is simply two sides of the same coin. Everyone leads a dual life. For some, one of it is latent but there. And for some, both are equally important, alive and makes the person who he/she is. I think I am the latter one”
IX. Preeti Vangani | Independent. Perceptive. Fun
Brand manager/ Poet
“There is a lot of joy and freedom that you can enjoy from a cross pollination of worlds, people, and ideas. This makes me lead two lives all the time.”
X. Sehrish Qureshi | Photographer. Entrepreneur. Still exploring.
“Someone once told me not to bite off more than I could chew. I said that I'd rather choke on greatness than nibble on mediocrity.”
XI. Shilavadra Bhattacharjee | Thrive In Panic.
Navigation Officer/ Artist Manager
“Duality creates conundrum; conundrum paves the way towards reality; reality paves the way towards clarity.”
