Namitha started by talking about an incident that happened in Andhra Pradesh a decade ago.

"I was returning to my hotel after an event. We were in a Skoda and were driving on the left side of the road. A lorry going in the opposite direction came on the wrong side and rammed into us. My car was totally destroyed. I was wearing a seat belt. If I had not worn it, today I would not be standing in front of you," she said.
