A researcher by training and have considerable experience of research and industry. For over 20 years, I have been closely associated with Vipassana meditation - practicing and volunteering. My connection to meditation and spirituality is purely experiential, not mere academic or intellectual.

I am fortunate that some severe tragedies and misfortunes of the past connected me to a lot of wonderful people whose presence adds meaning into my life.. 

I love to associate with people who value their own good qualities and make efforts to help others improve into better human beings through care, compassion and goodwill.

My website Mind Awakening Techniques deals with various topics related to self improvement and personal growth.  Currently,  I write on various social issues at my blog and occasionally help some NGOs in their documentation work.
