"For me, it was about the right person at the right place and at the right time," gleeful Triparna told India Today exclusively. She added, "I was elated to have been one among the 5.5 lakh applicants."

Crowned 'The First Sleep Champion of India,' Triparna emphasized the necessity of sleep in everyone who works hard in life. "Whilst money is an exciting perk of the job, it is mandatory to realize that a good 8-hour sleep is a significant part of life for peace of mind and success." She added, "In addition to hard work, sleep ensures efficiency."

Triparna's sleep efficiency score was 95 per cent, proving that her most enjoyable time is when she is asleep, Wakefit.co wrote in their Instagram post. To determine their sleep efficiency score, the contestants were monitored on parameters like sleep duration, awake time, light sleep, and deep sleep.
