(17:55) Moment of Gratitude = Karthik is particularly grateful for when his Dad kicked him out of the house. At the age of 17, his Dad gave him enough wisdom to navigate his own life and to get out of his comfort zone. He learned that humans are the same anywhere so he embraced global citizenship, it gives him such a broad mind and helps him to function in a more altruistic manner and find his true passion.
