I am an iconoclastL a secular who believes in the seperation of state and religion. I uphold liberal values and cherish pluralism and diversity. I believe that an objective and liberal education is the road to progress and development. I believe in the right of free speech as long as it is cognizant of the sensivities of others.I strongly adhere to the idea of female emancipation and empowerment. I am an extrovert and also an incorrigible optimist. My social-value system is again liberal and I trnd to aspire to be a global citizen. I am punctual and self-disciplined; but I must confess that at times I tnd to lose my cool, especially when I see an attrocity being committed against a hapless person; which is quite common in our society. I am a voracious reader, a health freak (but easily succumbs to the lute of ice-cream!) and an insatiable student of knowledge. Geopolitics is the subject of my primary interest.
