My Passion / Interests

I am very passionate about “THE BRAIN” it intrigues me how it functions with such vast network to perform the biggest action to the smallest reaction hence you will always find me looking for answers to ‘how’ and ‘why’ a particular thing happened. When I am not working you will always find me doing or exploring something new; Be it place, hobby or food.
