Inspired by the 2 most famous quotes from contemporary Indians – “Poverty is just a state of mind” and “I am still a Virgin” attributed to Rahul Gandhi and Salman Khan, Koffee with Karan started a new segment called “States of mind”.

Some of the immortal gems and the explanations offered by the participants are listed here :

Rahul Gandhi – Poverty is a state of mind. (just think you are rich, you wont feel hungry)

Salman Khan – Virginity is a state of mind. (you are a virgin till the time you think you are one)

Trinamool Congress – Change is a state of mind … (take it or leave it)
