Dr Hema Sane said, "Food, shelter and clothing are the basic needs. Once upon a time, there was no electricity, it came much later, I can manage without it."

Hema also said that the house in which she lives belongs to her dog, two cats, mongoose and a lot of birds. She added that it is their property and not hers. She only looks after them.
