Personal Profile

I have an interest in cooking and am forever trying out new recipes - sometimes with disastrous results! I also have a passionate interest for classical Indian music, which I find very relaxing.

In addition to my recreational interests, I have been involved in doing charity work by attending and organising surgical camps in India.
