I'm quite blunt, pathologically curious, fairly romantic and often very talkative.
Just finished my PhD and moved to London for a new career. Spend my time between Bangalore (home), Stockholm (work and second home) and London (new home).
I love nature, spending my time outdoors, hiking, and taking long walks. I'm an animal lover and there's nothing as thrilling as seeing majestic wildlife in all their splendor on their own turf. And I'm a big fan dogs.
Feel free to shout, say hi or knock doors :)
Born and raised in one country, living abroad for a significant amount of time and travelling to several other countries has got me thinking a lot about cultural identity, hybrid and third cultural identities. I spend a lot of time trying to develop meaningful friendships that can transend such boundaries. And I hoping the significant other will come along as well.
Otherwise, a lot of time goes in exercising which I enjoy, cooking which I love, taking long walks which I find refreshing and hanging out with my friends which I find stimulating.
Being empathic - a human trait that I think is essential & admire
Cooking (love to experiment in the kitchen - and I love to cook for others :)

I still have a soft stop for the good old hand drawn disney cartoons. Jungle book still makes me smile and feel good.
Strong sunshine... (ironic given that I lived in Stockholm the past 7 years)
....trying not to think about everything.
hmmmm, plans for an NGO that I hope I can set-up not too far away in the future. And most importantly where the financing is going to come from...
