1. Tell us something about yourself. 

I don’t think I need any introduction (except for my name :P). People who know me well can tell about me. But for the ones who don’t know me, a small jhalak – I am a happy-go-lucky guy. I love adventures and responsibilities. I love reading books, freaking out with friends, family and anyone who can accompany me :). People around me are always happy and have a nice sense of humour ;)

2. What are your hobbies?

Cricket, Adventure trips, Trekking and making friends.

I am a working professional at Infosys technologies limited which is a sponsor for volunteers at Aashayein ;)
