Nabeel Quadri says he’s excited about voting for the first time, being part of the democratic process. Plus, this is the best time for this dreamer to put his plans into action. Nabeel’s mother is a media professional and father a writer, but he knew what he wanted to do five years ago when he first saw a gleaming Lamborghini zip by on the road.
What I want to be
Definitely a sports automobile designer. So right now I am preparing to give my entrance exams for the National Institute of Design.
My idea of India
This is my home and it has its ups and downs. Our education system is weak and negotiating it means many day-to-day struggles. But culturally, India is so rich.
Who I will vote for
I like Rahul Gandhi, so I’ll support the Congress. I find it a bit claustrophobic here in Gujarat with everyone gushing over Narendra Modi. I feel the development they claim has happened under him is mostly hype.
What religion means to me
I try to pray once everyday. I thank god for all that I have and apologise for slipping up whenever I do. But for me, religion is a very private matter. And it upsets me that it often turns into a political issue.
Am I happy to be living where I am?
Right now, yes, but I see myself wanting to settle down somewhere abroad where I can work for one of the big sports vehicle brands.
What makes me angry
The state of education in our country. It’s frustrating that so often concepts are not clear at the basic level and we have to depend on rote learning. Also, too few seats in professional colleges compared to the number of applicants.
What money means to me
Money is important as long as I am comfortable.
To have my own automobile brand in India where I make sports and compact cars.
My best friend
Naveen Yeluri, who’s from Hyderabad and is studying commerce in Ahmedabad. We share a love of video games and can talk about it for hours.
