About Me


If you cannot convince them, confuse them!


If you want to know, come and find out over a cup of coffee or "masala chai" - by the way I make the best masala chai, let no one convince you otherwise ;) So if you mention "masala chai" in your request you have more than average chance of landing on my couch.


Smile! It makes people wonder what you are thinking...

"It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and the choices we make, ... and the choice you make, between hating and forgiving, can become the story of your life." -in Shantaram
