He was born in Nairobi, Kenya in 1946. He studied Mechanical Engineering in Calcutta (Kolkata) and Pune, India. He immigrated to Canada in April, 1988 and acquired his Professional Engineer designation; and worked in various manufacturing industries including food and automotive to name a few.
He loved to watch re-runs of the Bourne Identity series and the Fast and Furious, adored Celine Dion and enjoyed watching tennis, the Young and the Restless, How it’s Made, Motor Trend, following the world news and shows with his granddaughter Aryella like Peppa Pig, Ryan's World and The Astronauts – but most of all, he enjoyed spoiling Aryella with love.
He loved trying new foods, travelling, capturing pictures of places he visited (some are on the photo section of the site) as photography was his passion.

He loved Tandoori chicken, Butter chicken, Indian sweets like Kalakand, Monthar, Gulab Jamun and his favorite cake was Black Forest.
