I was born on the 11th of May 1970 in Bombay, India to two remarkable individuals Protima Bedi and Kabir Bedi. I was brought up in a very bohemian environment given that my parents defied most conventions and were at the forefront of the Indian flower power movement. My home was an “adda” for thinkers, poets, musicians, filmwallahs and resonated with the ideas, philosophies and wit of their bright, curious, creative and artistic minds.
I’ve always striven to create my own personal balance of east, west, conventions and bohemianism.
On one hand I was the class topper and even signed the much coveted, prestigious book of honour (Lawrence School, Sanawar), was in the basketball team, hockey team and a swimming champ too!
And on the other hand, I grew up with a spirit of healthy irreverence, learning to question, to challenge conventions, to voice my opinions and to explore realities and worlds beyond the boundaries created by both society and man.
Not only have my parents given me the gift of life, they taught me to respect it, nurture it, explore it, embrace it and to live it well.
I have been taught, by example, to live fully, to love deeply, the art of letting go, well, of things not meant for me and to always see the bigger picture.
