My daughter Aruna, born in Calcutta is a recent graduate in Business Administration of Ft. Lewis College, Durango. She has made a number of volunteer trips doing development work in Mexico & Japan. I am very, very proud of Aruna - a super, independent, smart lady.

I have lived in the USA, Europe and South Africa.
