Shashwat graduated in 2019. He moved to Mumbai and has found it super weird to adjust to adult life after that. Initially he felt like he was scammed into his job profile, still has that feeling sometimes. He always wanted to try stand up comedy but realised it's a strong network based thing, so he tried his hand at Improv comedy, did a gig at The Habitat and is now part of an improv group. He plans to start his own something soon but is still trying to figure out what that something is.
