My memories of my elder brother Ashok are precious to me. He was a highranking police officer in Mumbai and lost his life in the crossfire during the 2008 terrorist attacks. He was a very special person and had a lot to do with who I am today. He influenced me to excel in sports – I’m into tennis, gymnastics and basketball – to respect myself and to work hard. I looked up to him.
DELHI TO DUBAI
I’m originally from New Delhi, India, and moved here over 20 years ago. I never left, and Dubai is now home.
