TRAVEL

NATURE IMMERSION, ROADTRIPS 

Veteran of many 3000-7500km drives to the Himalayas and national parks across India. Love exploring roads/trails less travelled in my trusty 4WD vehicle. Have a soft corner for spooky forest rest houses, old bungalows and crackling campfires. Love the smell of pine and juniper, the call of animals in the night, and Himalayan peaks under the full moon. Often found in Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve during weekends.

CONTRACT BRIDGE

EVERY HAND AN ADVENTURE

Keen contract bridge player. Great game for teamwork, decision making under uncertainty, and keeping the mind sharp. An interesting quote below:

“Bridge is such a sensational game that I wouldn’t mind being in jail if I had three cellmates who were decent players and who were willing to keep the game going 24 hours a day.” – Warren Buffett
