During free time...
I’m passionate about writing. At any free time I sit and write plays, short stories, poems, anything that I am in the mood of. I also love watching movies, reading books. If I do have a lot of time on hand I do enjoy going on treks.

Style statement
 My personal style statement is, ‘If it feels strange you’re going to look strange, wear clothes which flatter your personality’.

Vacation spots...
As I said I enjoy going on treks. SO I love any place filled with nature. I love going to the Himalayas, Pondicherry, London and Cheng Mai (Thailand).

I am a complete book worm. And there are some books that I can read many times. Those are The Little Prince, Life of Pi and Age of Innocence.

I enjoy my share of foreign language films. Some of my favourites are Les enfants du paradis (French film) and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.

Naseeruddin Shah and Daniel Day Lewis.

Priyanka Chopra, Juliette Binoche, Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep.

 South Indian cuisine is my all time favourite.  

Exercise regime
I exercise about one hour in the mornings. I do yoga three times a week and also go swimming thrice a week.

Latest gadget
I’m not really a gadget person. The last gadget I bought was an i pod, that was around six months ago.
