When Abhishek met Prajakta

About the experience

Abhishek spent the day with his favourite YouTuber MostlySane (AKA Prajakta) on 7th December 2019. The day started with Prajakta and Abhishek chit-chatting over breakfast. Abhishek made a beautiful handmade card for her and presented it to her at breakfast. They then changed into their respective sumo suits and headed to Juhu beach to play some games in the sun. After the games, to cool off, ice-cold golas were had at the beach. 

We then drove across town to Prajakta's office, where she gave Abhishek a tour, and they proceeded to shoot her #SawaalSaturday video in sumo suits. (Yes, Abhishek is in the video too!) So much fun!

A day spent with Prajakta is incomplete without momos! She surprised us by ordering her favourite momos for lunch for the entire team, and they were devoured within minutes!

It truly was the best day ever!
