I met Aanchal at the home of one of my other research participants. On getting to know that I am a psychologist ‘basically trying to understand what all young people are doing and why’ (that’s the way her friend phrased the research concerns for her), she laughed excitedly and said that in response to this she would say, ‘Twenty six, lawyer, having a party every day of her life’. She struck me as a cheerful, gregarious person. All through the period that I saw her with her friend, she brought a certain positive charge to the interaction. I came to know that she was a corporate lawyer who had done her double bachelors’ degree in law and was working in a law firm. In between smoking a cigarette and chopping vegetables, she listened, responded thoughtfully, cut jokes and sang to herself. She volunteered to talk about herself, and we exchanged phone numbers. I contacted her a couple of weeks later. She was holidaying in Goa at that time.
