Life after RTC:
After graduating in 1966, moved to Canada, in 1967, and started career in Engineering. My next adventure, married Shashi (Ms. Indiana Jones !) - my childhood sweetheart. We settled in Burlington, Ontario - had two lovely daughters, Gitanjali and Kiran. We built a wonderful life embracing Canada's culture of hockey, maple syrup, skating, skiing and lots of snow. We also lived out West, made many friends, explored the Rockies and found passion for business.

I had interesting 27 years in Municipal Engineering and Business development in Land development. Shashi's specialty -Early Childhood Education, Social Sciences and Social Work, but her real passion is business. Our next adventure, went exactly like the song "it's a long way to Tipperrary" !

We are settled in Oakville, Ontario. At present, we are in Jewellery business, with two locations - having trained under Gemological Institute of America. Our daughter, Gitanjali, is involved in the family business. Kiran is Director of Marketing for a Finance Company.
My second career keeps me occupied with sales and design of jewellery.

I have consistently practised yoga for 50 years; play the piano and sing, when time permits. We love to travel, whenever we can. In the short Canadian summers, our free time is spent in the beautiful garden, Shashi creates, and in the pool, every moment we can! University days started with prayers and gymnastics - Now I start my day with prayers and yoga - not much has changed!!
