My Story

I spent my former years as a child in my homeland India. While studying grade nine in school, I moved to a tiny island in the Arabian Peninsula – Bahrain, which is my second home.

During my late teen, back in India, the buzz of college-life gradually built a rebellious attitude which swayed me along the path of alcohol and drug addiction. Every effort made to quit, brought a comeback to the addiction with greater force. It was “back with a vengeance.”

In 1991, by the sheer grace of God, I once and for all gave up drugs. But smoking and drinking continued. Between 1995 and 2000, once again God graciously intervened in my life; I gave up smoking and drinking.

There was a point when I felt as if I’d missed out knowing and loving God in my prime years. Just as addiction always hit “back with a vengeance,” so was the decision to follow Christ… “with a vengeance.” I decided to pursue the Lord seriously with all my life until my last breath.

Amidst the life-altering decisions of my youth, I pursued a post-graduate degree in Biology at the Madurai Kamaraj University, India (1990). I earned a second post-graduate degree in Religion through the Southern Evangelical Seminary, USA (2012).

A 23 year walk down the verticals of IT, Telecom, Software and Religion, allowed me to interact with a host of individuals from around the globe. I carry this passion of interacting with people into the cyberspace by blogging on a host of topics through the Christian worldview.

Since 1986 and going strong, I have, and always will intensely bleed green and love Boston Celtics (NBA). Tottenham Hotspurs is my football favorite. And in addition to these, watching tennis is always exciting. Playing badminton renews my energy every day. 

Aside from all this, I am blessed with two lovely children: John and Joanna.
