I am currently working as a customer care professional in private sector, after having completed my bachelor's degree. I come from a middle class, nuclear family with moderate values presently living in United Arab Emirates.
My daughter has a Bachelor's degree and she is employed in private Sector as a human resources professional currently based in Dubai. We belong to upper middle class, nuclear family with moderate values. We have recently shifted to Dubai and have lived in various cities in India. Iâ€™m working in a French MNC from last 5 years.
Born in India, I grew up in Dubai, and have studied & worked in both Singapore & London. This international exposure has contributed directly to the diversity of my thoughts & opinions, and I enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds and exploring new cultures through travel, media, arts, food and theatre/cinema.
I love reading (both fiction and non-fiction) and I enjoy yoga and swimming. I am always looking for ways to develop both personally and professionally and trying new things. In the last 12 months, for example, I tried scuba diving, completed my first 10k run, saw my second Shakespeare play, completed a 22 km hike in one day, took an improv class and visited 5 new countries.
I consider myself a foodie, am vegetarian and do not smoke, and consider these values of equal importance in my life partner. I also value patience, honesty, curiosity, open-mindedness and a good sense of humour. I have lived independently in the past (in Singapore and London), and would prefer to continue doing so.
My family and I are currently based in Dubai, but I am open to relocating to metropolitan cities internationally and in India. I love my work (currently working with a tech start-up in Dubai), and will continue to work all my life. Family & friends are important to me, and I expect my partner and I to support each other and share our responsibilities at home and to family.
