I would pick up wrappers from the road,' Anushka said. 'I (used to) think I'm a ragpicker.'

One day, my mom opened the cupboard and saw some ants, and the way she got angry and shouted, saying 'Have you lost your mind, who keeps these kinds of things'. I'm telling her very seriously, 'Mom it's my collection' and she goes like 'What kind of collection is this?' I used to collect stamps, coins. I used to have a very nice stamp collection, coins I would collect, and this also, it was my hobby.'
