DR HARI Ramineni is quite possibly Grafton's newest dentist, having just started at Happy Smiles in King St.

Hari moved to Grafton two months ago from Penang, Malaysia, where he had been working as a dental trainer.

He said he was sick of living in big cities and was just loving the change to the country lifestyle.

In particular, Hari is enjoying not having too far to drive to work because he is living in town.

If there is one thing Hari is missing it is his wife, Bhavika, who will be joining him in Grafton next month and here's the scoop: Bhavika is also a dentist, so that's yet another win for the Valley.

Although he is enjoying work, he is also "keen to go on a fishing trip that is long overdue".

Like many of us Hari also "can't wait for summer to get involved with cricket".

He is also enjoying cooking up an Indian-style storm in his kitchen, just to make him feel a little closer to home.
