P.S.: Tejesh always aspired to be a stock market bull thanks to the daily habit of following stock prices and business dailies since his early childhood. If not for his interest in Securities Law he could have been a professional cricketer having captained the street, school and later the college teams. Loves to hang out with office colleagues which are an extended family to him and parties hard.
