I am passionate about books and business journals, and like to stay updated about the global economic scenario. One of my favourite books is Richard Branson’s Screw It, Let's Do It. Besides dealing with profitability, it also talks about organisations’ duty to be environment-friendly.

I am a Bollywood movie buff and keen believer of realistic cinema. 3 Idiots is one of my most loved films not because of its comical storyline, but for the message it communicates — that irrespective of class or creed, you will meet your goals if you believe in them and are determined enough.

I play badminton occasionally to de-stress and recharge. It exercises the whole body in a way that no other sport does.

Take me to any authentic Amritsari dhaba; that is where my heart lies. I am extremely fond of North Indian delicacies. They are flavoured with spices and served with an extra topping of butter. My favourite dish is Amritsari kulcha and pindi channa!

Switzerland, for its lakes, villages and high peaks. Interlaken is a resort town nestling among the mountains, which gives an exquisite view of emerald-coloured lakes, dense forests and old timber houses. Zurich I love for it's 50 museums and 100 art galleries... the city holds so much tradition and art!
