She knows what she wants, and she will get it. She’s a laughter riot, a ball of energy bound to make you get up and get going. I won’t deny it, I’ve sometimes met her only to push myself out of my comfort zone as she never fails to give great feedback, and offers great help with whatever it is that I’m stuck with. She also happens to be a great gossip partner, and I enjoy having my “Mean Girls” moments with her. Everybody, say hello to my rockstar coffee-person : Radhika Sharma Swamy!
Who is Radhika?
I am a woman who is not afraid of her blingy personality! Sure I am daughter, wife, friend, soon to be mother , all those yes, but I am also a music lover, serial cheesecake eater, trying very hard to b a food entrepreneur, a great boss and some even say- a good friend to hang out with!
3 words that best describe you?
Crazy. Loud. Lover.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
I got this at a very drunken night in a hostel on my solo trip to Spain- “No matter how hard life gets, if you have the ability the smile, that is the first spurt of power you need to get your self up and move on”
(now you know what I mean when I say she’s inspiring AF?)
What’s the worst advice you’ve ever given?
Eat ice-cream when you are sick with a sore throat.
How do you balance your life- the professional and personal demands?
Work and life are intertwined and the faster you learn to accept that, the better you will live your life. I don’t mind reading emails in bed and answering calls even after office hours, because if you enjoy your job, you don’t care about this minute technicalities! I am a serious multi-tasker and use technology to its very best to achieve work life integration!
1 lesson you’ve learnt in the last 1 year?
Marriage is awesome.
In your free time you…
Serially cook and binge on Netflix.
You’re a blogger- what inspired you to start blogging?
My move to Pune after shaadi left me with an open mind and an open schedule! So without having to go completely crazy on my lovely hubby, I needed to put it to good use and exercise my brain. Blogging seemed like a great idea to explore the city, meet new people and gobble up delicious food. It’s been 2 years in Pune and I have only managed to eat at like 10% of the legendary places.
What do you want to be remembered as?
A woman with great ambition and a even bigger skillet.
What next for you?
Back to my sunny Pune and get cracking on a food venture! Bas ho gaya yeh management, a sabbatical with tons of bread, cheese and of course motherhood awaits!
Welcome back to Pune Radhika, we have missed this energy :*
