I am married with two children so I like to spend as much time as I can with them. One of the things I devote most of my free time towards is an on going project that helps hearing impaired children in India. This is a comprehensive free service offering screening for deafness for early identification, testing and fitting of hearing aids and also speech and language therapy. I organise fund raising events to help raise money to support this project. When I do find some time to relax from family and charity I enjoy playing badminton.
