Simple, laid back and understanding person; I completed bachelors in chemical engineering from a Institute of Chemical Technology- Mumbai and worked for Larsen and Toubro and Reliance; further completed a Masters in Environmental Studies with a focus in energy business strategies from Rice University/Jones School of Business in Houston, US; started working at a energy research & consulting firm in US as petroleum downstream analyst.
I occasionally read books fiction and non-fiction, nowadays I read anything on philosophy, economics anything that grabs my attention, ideas on social concepts, religion and politics.
I like soccer, follow most of the big leagues in Europe and major tournaments, big fan of Arsenal, German soccer team. However my favorite player is Xavi Hernandez who is a Spanish mid fielder. Big lawn tennis fan also, all time favorite player, Safin. I play chess too, even though I guess it may not sound an exciting game, it is not boring either.
I like movies, most of them that I have seen have been pretty good, among major directors I like Scott, Scorsese and Ray.
