2. Archana Anand would you like to share any childhood memories with us?
In my childhood, my father used to encourage me to participate in various contests. I used to participate a lot while I was not good at painting. But my dad insisted me to participate.
It was a spot painting competition and the topic was given “charkha “on the spot. I was 7 yrs old then. I didn’t know how to draw charkha. There were many participants and they started painting charkha. They made very beautiful charkhas painted beautifully. And each and everyone’s painting was awesome. I was very nervous and I didn’t know what to do.
Anyhow, I just draw the charkha and I coloured with original brown colour. My charkha was looking worst amongst all. Everyone was having colourful and beautiful painted charkha. I became disheartened and was angry with myself.
So I thought I am not going to win. So I painted mountains, rivers, birds and a small sketch of Gandhiji. And to everyone’s surprise, I came up as a winner and my painting was explained so beautifully that this painting truly depicts what charkha is all about. It relates to nature, cleanliness and Gandhiji. This feeling still gives m goosebumps.

Also, I m totally a daddy’s girl. My dad has a lot of influence on me. He always tried to make me stand out. He has crafted me in the way I am today.

7. What are your future plans or any wish you want to complete?
I belong to a small town in Bihar. The land is full of talents, but they fade away due to lack of proper opportunity, dedicated platforms and support from the system. Everyone is routinely living life suppressing their talents and dreams.
I would like to create platforms for them to showcase their talents to the world. I would love to make their dreams true which have been suppressed due to lack of proper guidance and platforms.
Recently I have organised a platform ‘Zazba Sahas Ka’ to showcase the talents of those who have not explored it till now. I want to continue it and expand it to the remotest town of the country.

10. Archana Anand, What is your motto of life? Describe as a woman what do you feel, how easy it is to face life? Name some of your friends who helped you throughout.
The motto of my life is to encourage people in bringing their hidden talents to the world. For this, I have organised several events to showcase the talents of the persons on digital platforms. The latest one is Zazba Sahas Ka.
As a woman, I would say that still life is tough. It is not easy to take independent decisions. We have to see our men for every decision and move. This is not good for the overall development of society. Our society must have broad thoughts so that everyone irrespective of being a man or woman can lead his/ her life with dignity. Lastly, I would name some of my friends, Sadhna, Kumar Bimalendu and prity who have always helped throughout my life.
