"My generation is into so many things. We throw ourselves into everything. Like I do a hundred things, and a lot of people are like do slowly slowly, but I feel like there is so much I want to say and do and fix, but I don’t have enough time to do it.”

"I identify with it a 100 percent. I was like this. I wanted to do so much. The best compliment that I can give to the younger generation is – I love my friends, I enjoy spending time with them but I enjoy spending time with the younger generation a lot more. I love sitting and listening to them and I love seeing them interact. It’s very stimulating for me."

Navya Nanda mentions that she prefers having a conversation with the older generation

"I like doing the opposite. I like sitting with like when your friends, Agastya (Nanda) and me love to sit with them and just hear them talk. I'm quite intrigued by, like, they have a very different perspective on life, and I find that quite interesting. I might completely disagree with them, but I still want to know why they're thinking that way or why they feel that way, and I find that very interesting."
