Rakhesh is a real world example of someone with a good bit of potential but who hasn't made much use of it due to poor choices, bad luck, and a don't care attitude.
Usually you see such characters in movies - the hero of a story who suddenly discovers he is The Chosen One or who has some incident happen to him that changes the course of his life (falls in love, is insulted, dies, etcetera). Neither of these has happened to Rakhesh though so he's still wandering about doing nothing much: an organized efficient ship drifting about with the wind, probably set to collide with a bunch of rocks.
Rakhesh loves computers & gadgets, is sort of a geek, lazy, and a wannabe sysadmin. His laziness is sometimes useful in that combined with his qualities such as persistence and wanting to be efficient he is good at automating things and trying to make life easier in general. He loves musing, analyzing human behaviour, finding patterns, is an introvert, and likes philosophies such as Zen, Taoism, and Hinduism. When not doing any of these, Rakhesh is into movies, TV shows, and reading.
In an alternate universe Rakhesh is a professor of behavioural economics & philosophy. Side by side he writes books, delivers speeches, and is a voracious reader. In a past life Rakhesh was a sword wielding warrior, one of the greatest that ever was; alas an evil magician cursed him to forget this past and live a wandering present.
