What was your dream job as a child? FBI agent! I gave that up when I realized that even to work in the crime lab, I would need to carry a gun! I probably read too many “Hardy Boys” books, or Sherlock Holmes mysteries! Of course I ended up in a hospital lab helping diagnosing diseases, instead of solving crimes.

What’s a lie you tell yourself? Walking an extra mile will take care of the cookie or cake (or Bengali sweets) that I just ate!
