#1. My hobby is military history, and I can pretty much go on for hours about every military tactic used, from the Assyrians four thousand years ago, to how Napoleon could have conquered Continental Europe, to why Singapore is militarily superior to Malaysia. :P
#2. One of the people that I admire the most is Klaus von Stauffenberg. Yes, he was German. Yes, he served under Hitler. If you do not know anything about him, you seriously need to do some reading.
#3. I am only allergic to one thing, and one thing alone. Cold temperature.

Until of course, they see me dance in Jaipur. :) Or when I am in my dance attire and in Philosophy or Sociology class. Guess who got maximum extra points for class participation? ;)
