51 - is a long way to have come but apart from my long quick stride having slowed down a bit, the pain in my bum knee and my system's obvious reluctance to shake off the excess baggage it carries , I do not see myself having changed many of the inherent quirks that maybe I was born with.

2. A place you’d like to travel to- Kausani

3. Your Favorite place: Jamshedpur , where I grew up .



My favourite house on Straight Mile Road


4. Your favorite food/drink: First flush Darjeeling tea brewed to capture that lingering flavour at the edge just before it catapults into bitterness ( mind you , it's a tough job ,brewing tea) Luchi and alu5. Your Favorite pet: My Tibetan spaniel Sammy who was with us from 1978 to 1988 . He was an absolute little rascal but so beautiful with his golden brown fur and his soulful eyes .
