P.S.: Suneet is fond of travelling and has keen interest in micro gardening. When he is not lawyering he catches-up on his quest for travelling and technological developments, watching TED talks or Seinfeld, tending to his micro-garden or polishing his photography skills. He plans to own a piece of land to grow useful herbal plants and crops (pesticide free, of course) someday.
