Talking about his work ethics; Though he may bug anyone & everyone if he isn't in the mood to work but, when he is, don't expect him to look over his laptop screen even for a bit. When it comes to solving a problem, his thinking agenda starts where our ends, making him a unique fit in the entire unit!
Being an insomniac, you can expect him to be all set and ready for a late night cuppa, or even a patiala!
