See the fire in your eyes
You ain’t gonna burn me this time
Let’s get real serious
I wanna get closer to you now
you making me furious
you just want to keep me in the door
I try to always be your baby
but you dont want to love me.
I try to always be your baby
but you think its funny
I dont want the
I don’t want the
I dont want the
I dont want the
i just wanna be painless
Livin’ The Life
Livin’ The Life.
Spread the love

La La, La La
Feel the love, Feel the love”

Ananya is very beautiful and charming. She is also very friendly by nature. It is obvious that she has many admirers from the opposite sex.
However, she has managed to keep the name of her boyfriend a top secret so far. The reason for her not revealing her relationship or the name of her boyfriend is because her family is very orthodox and conservative.
The elders in the family will not appreciate Ananya going public about her love life and revealing details of her boyfriend(s).
Ananya is not married yet though the event is imminent. It is common for Marwari families to get their children married at an early age.
At the age of 23 years, Ananya is of marriageable age.
However, the challenge will be in finding a suitable husband for her. She is so intelligent and beautiful looking that her husband will obviously also have to be intelligent and handsome looking.
The networth of Kumar Mangalam Birla, Ananya’s father, is $12.5 Billion as of September 2017.
Ananya has two siblings, being Aryaman Vikram and Advaitesha Birla.
If Kumar Mangalam’s net worth of $12.5 Billion is divided amongst the three children in equal proportion, it means that Ananya’s net worth is nearly $4 Billion.

Sometimes in life, we are often faced with hard decisions such as holding onto relationships that no longer serve us or entangling ourselves through those very relationships,” Ananya stated.
Meditation, exercise, Bhagavad Gita
Ananya Birla revealed in an interview to ET that fitness entails finding inner happiness. Her own unique mantra of keeping calm and staying ahead is to focus on Meditation, exercise and Bhagavad Gita.
“I recommend that everyone read the ‘Bhagavad Gita. It teaches you about life. I was inspired to take up meditation after reading it, which is now something I try to practice as often as possible. Meditation creates serenity and calm that helps me deal with life’s ups and downs. It helps me switch off recharge. It also boosts creativity. It encourages me to look at projects (and sometimes myself) more objectively and tap into deeper thoughts and emotions,” Ananya Birla said.
