Day 8 of Navratri stands for the Brilliance of the Divine Mother. Today, we celebrate the story of Archana Mittal, a restaurateur and an actor, and how she manages a fine balance of doing both brilliantly.
“Acting started off as an interest for me and grew into a passion after I started acting in plays and short films. I also actively run a restaurant. Initially, I’d work around my business timings, so things were managed easily. However, it got difficult when I started doing television. I was in Jaipur for 7 months for my first show, and so, I’d take bulk orders for the restaurant between scenes and stay on top of things on a regular basis. Of course, my husband and my staff really helped!
For me, brilliance is managing whatever I’m doing with peace and harmony, and doing it well. Whether it is acting or handling my business. I work towards ensuring that my staff is happy and feels cared for, that there is no compromise on the quality of service in my restaurant, and make sure everyone is happy. That includes my family. That’s because I believe you can’t make castles on graves. At the same time, when acting, I need to be content with what I’m performing. Finding this equilibrium can be tough – but being patient and resilient helps. ‘It’s all good’ is my mantra, and it helps me tremendously.
