A supportive wife of an army officer, now retired, pillar of strength to two beautiful daughters, and a home maker, I have a zest for learning which motivated me to paint the canvas of my life with colours out of ‘ordinaire’. Opportunity to travel and live in most parts of India has been advantageous. It gave me a rich knowledge, appreciation, and insight into different cultures and related issues. Being a voracious reader with eclectic interests keeps me well informed and updated.
