“When I used to try and make something unusual out of my mother’s old sarees, I was called MAD by everyone. My activities were considered futile. There used to be comments like ‘Gal you’re doing nothing but wasting your time and valuable stuff, concentrate on your studies you will be more successful in life’. But I didn’t bother. I listened to my heart, and followed my ambition. I knew it was creative, innovative and imaginative! It was beyond my family’s thinking because it was my own wish! I followed what I wanted to do in life and see today….. I am a high profile Fashion Consultant! I am happy to be myself” says the 28-year-old Nikita Seth, a leading fashion consultant from Delhi.
