Beyond Wiss

One of Bala’s greatest passions is traveling the world. Exploring new cultures, cuisines, and landscapes has always been a source of inspiration and growth for him. From his days of growing up and traveling across India to the time he spent traveling in Europe, each adventure adds a new layer to his worldview.

In addition to globetrotting, Bala finds solace and exhilaration on the basketball court. Playing basketball allows him to challenge myself physically and mentally, fostering teamwork and resilience. He’s a huge NY Knicks fan, and he tries attend and watch as many NY Giants games as he can.

However, amidst all his interests, nothing compares to quality time spent with his family. Whether it’s a simple weekend getaway or a cozy evening at home, he considers these moments priceless and enjoys creating memories to forever hold dear.
