Where I live:
was born and brought up in Manipal, a coastal town of Karnataka state, INDIA. With
a beautiful lake, Manipal is a serene place to live and is also
called the University town, with a lot of educational institutions. I
currently live in Bengaluru for work. My long term dream is to settle back in Manipal doing my own stuff.
Outside of work:
have spent quite some years of my professional life in Manipal, when I
am not working, I used to spend some time at the beach flying kites
once in a while, drive alongside the beach or walk to the riverside,
take a boat ride. I love traveling alone[now that I am married, its a tad bit difficult to be alone] and I like talking to different
people. It is always nice traveling in trains, and buses when you get
to meet new people.
In Bangalore, I occasionally go watch a live play in a theater, ride on my bike exploring the food joints[someare on my Instagram stream
Apart from these, I like pencil sketching and water color paintings.. I like all kinds of music but cant get to stick to one genre for long time. My playlists are random.. I like playing football and I can say am above average at playing caroms.
Books I have been reading:
Garfield - At a book exhibit, I bought a bunch of them at a re-seller for Rs 50 then on I have like them like none other, I have been on a hunt for them since then.
My to-do list:
That's a lot of me!!
