Reportedly, Anamika teaches the slum children as well as her children because of which she has always been able to stay in touch with the current affairs. Due to her teaching practices, she was able to keep herself well-informed about the general knowledge topics.
Interestingly, she couldn’t find the spot to the hot seat as she didn’t answer the fastest-finger-first question correctly. However, as her fate was on her side, she got the other answer correct and made way to the hot seat.
Once she got the hot seat, it was an interesting series of questions and answers. Using her wit and patience, she was able to think through most of the questions and answered accordingly. In fact, when she reached the 1 Crore question, there weren’t any lifelines left. But instead of quitting, she gave it a lot of thought and finally succeeded.
