Together they have now been in practice for 17 years under the banner of ADND. Their office is involved in numerous boutique projects of residential, corporate and commercial in genre.

Shobhan has always been a sports enthusiast. Having played tennis and volleyball at state level during his school year has only motivated him to keep fit. Today running half marathons and doing cross fit with interspersed games of tennis and volleyball is what he pursues. An avid reader and a sporadic blogger, writing is also what fuels his passion.
