Her view about Life.
On her website she quoted, “To me life is an unprepared journey to unknown places. Uncertainty is the most inevitable thing. Whatever station comes, I get off, take a look around, enjoy being there and move on towards a new location.
The joy of being there is the joy of my life. The geographical, mental, emotional journeys are the things which define me. I wish the journey goes on and on. Life is an ongoing process of learning, and I wish I never stop learning.”
