Here is a little about me.......... Studying Human behaviours has been my passionate hobby Since 1986. As my business is of Real estate, my introduction is of my professional background and modest achievements so far. A lot of folks who know my keen interest on human behaviours and Sun signs traits ask me if I am an astrologer, I wish to clarify, I am not :-) and nor can I predict or do want to predict the future. Why would I want spoil the surprises God has in store for you and me?

" The good thing about the future is, it comes one day at a time ".

I am a 'Property & Finance Consultant' in the city of Mumbai and here is my bio below:
