WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
I was born in Bangalore, India and moved to Dubai, U.A.E when I was about a year old and have been raised there ever since. I have grown up with the city from its humble beginnings to the glamorous destination it has now become and have seen and experienced a lot of amazing things. I highly recommend a visit to Dubai and experience all that it has to offer. You will not be disappointed.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?
It is definitely hard to pick just one!! But if I have to, then:
The Matrix – I just love how the story of the Matrix merges with reality. The possibility that we are in a world that isn’t what it seems to be is just fascinating. For all we know, we are a part of the Matrix right now and don’t even know it!!!
WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM VACATION BE?
My dream vacation would not be just one place. I love to travel and so my ideal vacation would be to spend about a week each in 2 or 3 different places on one trip. The latest destinations on my list are to visit a couple of cities in the little known country of Malta. It is an Island in the central Mediterranean, south of the Italian island of Sicily across the Malta Channel.
WHAT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULDN’T GUESS ABOUT YOU?
Well, I guess it would have to be that I have been raised in Dubai.
When I say I am from Dubai, (although technically I am from India) I am almost every time greeted by a surprised look followed by a
discussion on the city and whether people do really own tigers as pets (I am not answering that, some things are best when left a mystery.. haha!!)
WHAT BOOKS ARE ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
To be honest, I am not an avid reader by any means and so there are no books on my night stand. I have a reading lamp though!!
WHAT’S THE BEST PLACE YOU HAVE EVER VISITED?
Whoa, another difficult one.
I would have to say Chiang Mai in Thailand. The culture is intriguing, the city is so beautiful and the people are so warm and welcoming everywhere you go.
Exploring the jungle on the backs of soccer playing elephants (yes you read that right, Soccer playing elephants!!!!) is truly an amazing experience.
The food is quite exotic and I came across really extraordinary looking fruits that tasted amazing.
Definitely one for the books.
IF YOU HAD TO WATCH ONE SPORT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Basketball hands down!!
The intensity and constant action the sport provides just keeps me at the edge of my seat. I think the best part about the game would be the frequency at which points can be scored and that’s what keeps it interesting in my books. The game can slip away from you in any quarter and strategic plays coupled with finesse shots makes the sport what it is.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELIEVE STRESS?
I have recently been hooked onto riding my bike. I enjoy taking trails that surround me with nature and constantly on the look out for more. I am also quite a movie/TV-series buff and love to binge watch a variety of them.
