I long for my epitaph to read “He experienced life”.
Life for me has been a story born out of a medley of cumulative experiences: some good, some not so good and some bad. But out of every experience and interaction there is a learning to imbibe.
I have been fortunate to have been born and raised in a closely knit professional family in India. Growing up in India in 1970s and 1980s, I was a fortunate to witness a period of sea change.

Friends who have helped shape my thinking and even after years the bond with them only grows stronger.More About Me
Life changes every day for every person in some way. We expect the seasons to change, children to grow taller, birthdays to keep piling on, strawberries in June and the crisp smell of fall in October … we expect to grow older … to watch children marry, to retire from our jobs and play with our grandchildren. We even recognize that sickness and death are expected events in our lives.
We all face changes every day – whether it is a simple change of the weather, our schedule or how we look at the world. We each deal with change in a different way. Change affects each of us differently. For the most part, we are generally left to deal with the daily ebb and flow of life and are contented with the small changes we see and make every day.More About My Mantra
