In a chat with HerZindagi, Abha Godiyal revealed that she wasn't too tech-savvy before the pandemic or before actually joining Instagram. When asked how she landed up opening an account on social media, she told us that after her daughters went abroad for their higher studies, she used to send them food pictures. Those food pictures were not only filled with love but also seemed very very captivating. That is when her younger daughter suggested her to start her own page on Instagram to post pictures for all those who miss the homely food made specially by their mother.
