Other than medicine, one of my great passions is poetry. I have been both reading and writing poetry since childhood. I find this incredibly relaxing and fulfilling and lets me exercise my creative muscles. I am always intrigued by different languages and cultures around the world. Other than English, I am fluent in Bengali and Persian and speak five other languages from the Indian subcontinent. My wife and I share a love of travelling. We have already visited five continents and are planning a few exciting trips for the future.
