Hi! I'm Debashis
If you’re reading this far, you’re either curious, or a stalker, or a bit of both.
I’m a remnant of the latter part of generation X, born in India and brought up in the United Kingdom. I come from a middle-class Indian family who mean the world to me. I moved around a bit with my parents, and then moved around a bit more as an adult, spending time in Saudi Arabia, the United States and Australia. While I am officially Australian, I’m a product of my environment – just like everyone else.
I currently live in Singapore, and try to take every opportunity to travel around Asia.
Professionally, I’m an Engineer who has made his way into the business world.
On a personal level, I enjoy travelling, taking photographs, making short films, making the most of the outdoors when there is good weather, and playing the piano (in no specific order).
I’m somewhat introverted, generally confident, very inquisitive, and mostly reserved. Whether it is people, or a topic of interest, I am more about the depth of what is at hand, rather than the breadth. I prefer socialising in small groups where I can interact and connect more deeply with individuals, rather than superficially with large groups.
My life circumstances over the years have left me little alternative but to be organised. I generally like to have a plan and follow it, but it’s not to say that I won’t change if the situation warrants it sufficiently.

- Adventurous 60%

The one thing that I value above all else is time. You can make more money and you can replace worldly possessions; but you can never replace time that you have lost.
I’m a minimalist – something that has been brought upon me as a result of apartment living for over 15 years. I do not buy what I do not need. As an extension to that, when I do buy something, I ensure that it is of the best quality to meet my needs for what I intend to use it for.
