I am from India, born in New Delhi, and living in the US for more than 20years now. I am a physician, a hematologist-medical oncologist and an amateur photographer. I moved to West Lafayette, IN from San Francisco Bay Area in August 2018. We have come to enjoy the calm and quiet of the Indiana neighborhood. 

I love to fight cancer with a passion; I love to use the word 'cure', and though I have more opportunities today than ever before, it is not as much as I would like. There always has to be more. In some of these moments which may be a little depressing, it is Photography that comes to my rescue. It rejuvenates me, shows me a better world, makes me happier, a better oncologist and a better person.

I love to travel , read, photo, live ...,more pics of travel

My favorites in reading of late are Elizabeth Strout, Kazuo Ishiguro,  Haruki Murakami.....Some of my books

I am currently reading 'The Chinese Groove' - by Kathryn Ma. I usually read on a kindle.
Some of the best books I read in 2022 were - Strange Beasts of China by Yan Ge; Joan is Okay by Wieke Wang; Tomorrow and tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin; The Book of Goose by Yiyun Li  and  The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell. In 2022, I discovered Chinese-American literature and was amazed - There is such gentle sadness that appeals to me, perhaps  as I grow older.   My favorite books of late  include 'The Buried Giant' by Kazuo Ishiguro; 'Hamnet'  by Maggie O'Farrell, 'Migrations' by Charlotte McConaghy.

My favorite subject to photograph these days are flowers, colors, abstracts, birds, mountains and of course my child.        
My Shooting equipment is primarily a Nikon D5 . I lost my favorite D4 camera in the SFO airport while on a vacation to the Canadian Rockies in June 2016.  I  hope somebody is using my lost D4 and it's not lying unused in some shady corner, it loves to take lots of pictures.  other Nikon stuff

I have been a 'Kiva Lender'since April 2009.

everything I do helps me fly a little
