What started out as a simple way to pass time between classes and study breaks transformed into a passionate hobby, fostering some of the best friendships I walked out of law school with. All thanks to this table-tennis paddle my law school roommate Allen gifted me as a birthday present.

Called dandia in Gujarati, these sticks are used in a traditional Indian folk dance celebrating the Hindu holiday Navrati. Dandia represent the wealth of culture and tradition central to my upbringing, and further embody my love of dancing. The resemblance to drum sticks is a nod to my years as a percussionist.

While many siblings spend their formative years fighting, my brother and I grew up spending most of our weekends and breaks playing video games with each other (there was still some fighting, too). Little did we know then that games would create such a close bond between us, and continue to provide a timeless form of entertainment.
