I like to read different genres, but Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell stands out from the rest. It is about successful people and what made them who they are. It details various and often overlooked aspects of their lives, which contributed to their achievements.

I regularly play golf. The pleasure of being out early morning, walking and playing in an open ground with fresh air and greenery all around, relaxes me. The peaceful surroundings help me focus on my game and I feel rejuvenated for the rest of the day.

I enjoy Indian cuisine. If I had to pick a meal it would be mutton curry, biriyani and kebabs cooked at home. I rarely go out and eat. When I do, maybe once or twice a month, I like to eat on Italian or Chinese.

Single malts are my favourite. However, on my trip to Tuscany, I also went wine tasting and enjoyed that. Occasionally, I do not mind having Grey Goose with Tonic water.

I don’t get much time to travel due to the nature of my work. Whenever I do, I like to go to new destinations and explore as much as I can. Recently, my daughters planned a trip to Tuscany where I was able to play my favourite game, golf. It was one of the best family vacations that we have taken.
