    I like to study Human behavior and understand why one behaves the way he does. I find solace in helping people in distress. I believe "A calm and peaceful mind, facilitates calm and peaceful actions". I like doing independent research related to mental health. For my recreation I like to read, play basket ball, enjoy with family and friends.
