I work for a United Nations specialized agency called the Universal Postal Union.
I graduated from Delhi University in 1975. After a brief stint as a structural designer in Panaji, Goa, I joined the Department of Posts in the Government of India in 1979. I worked there for ten years before joining the Universal Postal Union. The UPU, an intergovernmental organization based in Berne, Switzerland, coordinates postal services between its 192 member countries.
I am married to Anjali Mathur. We have two sons. Jayant will soon finish an MBA from California Lutheran University in Los Angeles, and Dhruv is studying for a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Northeastern University, Boston.
I am interested in trekking, boating, physical oceanography, travel, defence affairs, aviation, ham radio, music and mathematics.
