I went to London in May last year to meet some British artists who’ve been my friend for many years. I get nostalgic whenever I meet them. My association with London is very old; I have been going here for decades now. In fact, I left India when I was very young.
I had a meal of my life time in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. I relished some mouth-watering kathi roll in a rather simple restaurant there.
I hate shopping. My sisters and daughters got me some shirts and T-shirts during my recent visit to London, and picked up some trousers for me from Dubai.
I’m not a very adventurous person, so, I’ve not tried any adventure activities.
I generally do not listen to music.
Reading these days
Currently, I’m not reading anything.
Moment of peace
Two places where I really enjoy and am at peace with myself are Mexico and Egypt because I think these two places have so much to offer in terms of art to the world.
I listen to everyone and do not argue if I don’t like your viewpoint. And if you like something, keep it to yourself. Everybody should be in peace and learn to accept the other person.
Thats a cool tip!
