I say this very openly that I have seen worst in my personal life. Neither my father is educated nor my mother. I know how poor people makes their living. We are 6 siblings, on festivals we used to iron our school uniform and wear it because we couldn’t afford buying new clothes. But from time to time I met people who have helped me. I didn’t have college fee, my mother borrowed it. I didn’t have a computer, my boss gave me money. When I became a news anchor, I didn’t have clothes, so my boss helped me. I anchored in a black blazer for two years.”
