Bahut saari cheezein chal rahi thi wha jaane ke baad. Mujhe pta that ki ye ek project hai, ye humari life nahi hai. Life me hume pta hota hai ki hume apna time kaise baantna hai. To mera focus sirf project pe that, qki mai jo karta usi basis par mai waha hota. To kahi na kahi, wo balance mai nahi bana paya.”

“Ankita ki emotional needs ko mai samay se waha nahi pehchan paya. Aur mai humesha apne aap ko samjhane me laga raha, jo mujhe realise hua ki rishte me samjhane ki jagah samajhne ki jarurat hoti hai. Shayad mai samjhta cheezon ko to shayad mai kuchh aur kar raha hota. Kyunki wo ek point of view ka show that, you want to show yourself. Uss zone me shayad chala gaya tha.”

“Emotions apni jagah hain, shabd apni jagah. Jab aap apno ko takleef me dekhte hain aur unse baat bhi nahi kar paate hain, to uski worry me jo baate kahi jati hai, unki feelings sahi hoti hai. But jaise hi hum wapis aa gaye, ghar walon ko samjhaya ki wahan kya situation hoti hai. Kabhi humne ghar pe glass nahi uthaya, wahan khana banate hain. Whana itni cheezein chal rahi hoti hai ki in sab baato ko sochne ka time hi nahi hota. Wha to ye cheez kab shuru hui, kab khatam hui pta ni chalta.”
