Having lived more than two decades in India, Swami Achuthananda lives and breathes the culture. He is an exponent of Indian Classical (Carnatic) music and a former student of K.J. Jesudas, India's award-winning playback singer. A born Hindu, Swami loves India passionately but lives outside of it, devours fries and burgers as much as curry and spices, and appreciates Indian classical music as well as western songs.
When Swami is not discussing Hinduism, he's seen talking about India's other greatest religion - cricket.
