A soccer fanatic, although more concerned about world politics given my profession. Successfully completed my masters in business administration, yet aim is to make it big in the world of journalism. A die-hard Arsenal and Germany fan. Loves football since the days of Klinsmann, Voeller, Matthaus and Linekar. Sometimes get a mouthful from friends for preferring football to cricket but it hardly irritates me. My thanks to Ahmed for giving me a chance to write in soccerlens. There are some fantastic writers in this site and hope to learn from their styles of writing in the course of my involvement in this fabulous football website.
