In a house crowded by the mediapersons, visitors, well-wishers, and amid the chaos that is bound to accompany such a gathering, Inakshi remained calm and collected. Her father, Dr Harsh Vardhan could possibly become Delhi's next chief minister, but the young MBA student keeps her feet on the ground.
"It feels very normal, nothing out of the ordinary. My friends keep calling and asking, 'what is going to happen', and I tell them I don't know yet," she said.
She was unable to campaign on the ground for her father because of semester exams which ended on December 3. So, she campaigned on social media.
"I wanted to campaign, but dad told me to stay home and study. So, I campaigned on Facebook from home. My friends helped me too. Social media has been very useful," she said.
Like all voters of Delhi, she too had a few expectations from her father if he becomes the chief minister. "I want him to ensure safety for women. You see, girls always live in a very protective environment. Even my parents tell me to be back home before dark," she said. "I drive to college at Amity University, and nowadays, because darkness falls early, I feel the urgency to return home even sooner. I want my freedom," she said.
Despite intense media focus on her father over his candidature, allegations and other unpleasant things, all Inakshi feels is excitement. "I don't feel any pressure about it. I don't worry either, I have complete faith in him," she said.
Like most 20-year-olds, she is unsure about her plans for the future, with "nothing in particular" on her mind yet. "Nobody at my age knows what they are going to do or become. I'll see how the future unfolds...," she said.
