To connect with interesting & creative people around the world!
I value culture and enjoy meeting people who have carved an individual niche for themselves in the world. I travel around trying to enrich myself culturally and am passionate about woven silk textiles which were worn by nobility and used to decorate the lavish royal courts of the Orient & Europe. Apart from textiles, i also enjoy museums as long as they have lavish and extravagant art works- artifacts, paintings, sculptures etc.
I lived in the US for many years- first for college and a few years of work in Financial services and returned to India in 2010. I dont work a job anymore, and only spend time pursuing my passions which hopefully will lead to a business at some point- perhaps after several more trips of research and study to France & Italy, and a graduate school education (again in Business) that i hope for - soon at least!
I dont believe in nationality or excessive patriotism though and think excessive pride is self destructive- but i make exceptions to this belief too sometimes! :)
