Take your tragedy and turn it into a platform
It all began for an 8-year-old Harsh when he tried his hand at cooking for the first time. He would sneak into the kitchen to imitate the dishes his mom made for him. And over time, this slow-burn passion for playing with flavors grew.
Nothing ever stopped him from getting into the kitchen. Not his parents who cautiously watched over him when he was working the stove. Not his friends who coaxed him to come play outside. Not even finding out he had diabetes at the age of 14. In fact, more than ever, his curiosity had peaked. He would spend the whole day perfecting sugar-free, wholesome recipes. That was his life then, as much as it is now.
