After a hard day’s work at the office, Samta revels in the company of her family, which includes a daughter and a son. Fond of reading herself, she takes a keen interest in acquiring varied titles for her children and is happy to see them immersed in make-believe worlds. Travel is something else they enjoy together, though her family complains she goes to every place twice – first virtually, when she’s researching the place of travel, and the second time, in person, when her penchant for sharing all her research interferes with the actual experience of a new spot!
