I was born in New Delhi, India in the last century. My father being a diplomat with the Indian Foreign Service, I left India at the ripe old age of 3 months to cross the seas to Nairobi, Kenya. From there I started my travels across the world and lived, studied, worked or visited many countries. To name a few: Italy, Russia, Ukraine, USA, Australia, Laos, Germany and many others. An alumni of St. Stephen College, Delhi, India, I went on to become a software developer and analyst and started my own companies. In the early 90’s I left it all to start a school for poor children in a trouble torn region of Assam, India. I went on to help start, lead or advice on the establishment of more schools and vocational training centres for street & slum children in Bangalore, India and work as an external consultant for UNICEF(ROSA) on their project – ‘Women’s right to Life and Health.’ The project covered 6 countries in South-East Asia. I have been living in Munich, Germany, since 2004 and have worked with mentally challenged people, as well as a trainer, coach and counselor for numerous groups and individuals.
