I am a warm-hearted and inquisitive person, always on the lookout to learn something new. I enjoy getting to know people through conversations about their experiences, music, books and whatever interests them.
I was born in Bangalore and my childhood was spent in Trinidad, where I studied up to A levels. I went to medical school in the UK and have been working in London as a junior doctor for the past four years, during which I obtained my MRCP. I truly enjoy my profession because it combines a forever-stimulating academic environment with a direct role in helping people. I am training in neurology because its logical approach resonates well with my thinking disposition. It also can be a bit lighter on out-of-hours duty, which would bode well for work-life balance. I will be a neurology registrar in London from August 2013 onward and I hope to settle down to a combined clinical and academic practice at one of the major teaching hospitals in southern England.
I come from a well-educated and close-knit family who are mostly based in Bangalore. We have a modern outlook while respecting cultural traditions. My two younger siblings are also in the UK. When we meet we often like to cook together and we also enjoy Indian classical music and dance. I trained in both of these from a young age and they played a big role in shaping who I am. The cosmopolitan environments in which I have lived have also taught me about different cultures.
Ideally my partner would be hard-working, kind, intelligent and supportive. Willingness to appreciate Indian performing arts, and a witty sense of humour, are always welcome. If you think the above describes you, I see some good conversation ahead. All the best!
