About Me

Basically I am born and brought up in Pune-Maharshtra. Currently working in Melbourne Australia.

I am working as a Software Business Consultant.

Cooking is my hobby, passion. Cooking takes me in the separate world where I can keep aside my mind & myself from the routine work tensions. Also it gives me a lot of motivation and energy to do work.

I have been cooking since I was 12 years old, I think I have got god gift that whatever I eat I can recognise the recipe from the test.

I am pure vegetarian.
