Q1) how did you get into saving animals?
Answer: Its a long story. The apartments I stayed in when I was in south Delhi had this lone stray dog called
Tommy. Like other RWA he was subjected to cruelty by guards and RWA functionaries as he was being fed
by me. I stood ground and fought for him and saved him from distress.
Q2) What is your normal day like due to all the animals you look after?
Answer: We have two farms near Gurgaon which houses around 70 odd canines in different stages of their lives.
Its a place for old,handicapped,blind and those canines who have nowhere to go. So usually we start
very early as attendants clean the place and then they start feeding. I generally leave for work around
8 and they continue with their daily chores. Then once I return in the evening, I love to spend all my time with my children (dogs and animals). I sit in the lawn with them . They all sit around me while I listen to music or watch some TV and relax. At night some of my first kids sleep in my bed room, the rest all sleep in the drawing room which is setup with high quality coolers.

Q4) What have been your best moments in animal rescue?
Answer: There are many canines who comes to us at a very delicate time of their life. One such case is of a

almost as she had lost a lot of blood and infection had set in, however with gods grace she survived
and now run around with her two hind legs.
