What makes you excited about your subject, and why do you like teaching it?
“I spent different parts of my life in England and in India, which is where my folks were from, and so understanding history and culture was a way of understanding myself, and I’m lucky that I get to do it as my job as well.”
What is one thing that students should know about you?
“I am a cricket enthusiast. I am a fan of the sport. I play it less now than I did when I was a bit younger, so that’s one of my main obsessions.”
