Teaching, Nature and People. An educator at heart, I am passionate about my profession, which is teaching social work to post graduate students of Delhi University. A nature lover at heart, and a peoples' person to the core....describes me!
A little known fact about me is:
I am very health conscious and am updated about most medical facts.....to the extent that people generally take me for a medical practitioner. I love to talk and motivate friends about healthy eating and enhancing well being.
