Mera source of humour hai observation. Jo bhi cheezan mere aas paas ho rahi hai main unhe thoda sa minutely observe karta hun jo aap [audience] shayad nahi karte. Aur kyunki shayad main ye itne saal se kar raha hun toh mera dekhne ka perpective esa ho gaya hai.”

Yr maine koi ye by choice nahi liya tha ki muje kabhi abusive content nahi dena . Main real life main corporate main kaam kar chuka hun aur main in general bhi gali nahi deta hun toh jo banda gali nahi deta toh uske content main generally gali nahi aati. Agar aap jin stand-up comic ko dekhte ho jo galliyan dete hai toh main aapko bataun ki unke tone main gali hai naki wo on purpose gali dete hai.”
- Rajat delivered a TED talk at The NorthCap University in Gurugram, Haryana in 2019.
