6 feet 2 on his soles, he's a man everyone had to look up to- except Atul, that is. His favourite playground is the fifth dimension and his philosophy-“Life is an apparent contradiction". Once he was so dazed he contradicted the above statement too.
He is practical, pragmatic, pithy, phlegmatic and so on. He has an equable temperament (reason why he couldn't answer questions no. 17 & 18 in Catch 22, our questionnaire for this year book).
