Q ; Can you be described as a nerd who always excelled in academics? Tell us your most memorable funny anecdote from school/college that makes you laugh even today..
Bhasha ; I have always been a nerd. The most memorable school memory has to be me stepping on a running treadmill at the school gym and falling flat on my face in full view of my mates. It’s a shame it never got filmed.
I got bullied & called ugly Betty in school , I wore glasses … I decided to focus on grooming and experimented with make up and got creative. I made my own share of make up mistakes – Sharpie brows was one of them! I dieted and exercised like most people . However , I realised early on that exterior appearance is something easily altered and so I stopped beating myself up over my looks , eventually”
Q ; How did medicine happen to you?
Bhasha ; I wanted to be everything under the sun growing up -from astronaught to footballer! It was finally medicine when I realised that its an art and a science and was a perfect Mish mash of everything I had to offer. I am a good listener, very much a science geek and love people.
Q; What did you have to sacrifice or give up to get to where you are?
Bhasha ; My social life. I see my friends almost never for just socialising. Even our meet ups revolve around working out together or planning charity events etc. I also don’t go clubbing, drink or smoke so socialising isn’t much fun if I’m around haha!
