I try to read around 20 books a year.

I have been practicing as a general practitioner and family physician for more than a decade. I currently live in Delhi, India.

Besides practicing at my clinic, I also speak to the general audience on Happiness Science. I talk about how they can raise their happiness levels, and how it can have a massive impact on their personal and professional stories. I base my happiness-enhancing techniques on psychological research.

Motto: Let’s bring more happiness into our lives.
