Future Generali COO Easwara Narayanan on why Malayalam movies are a cut above

I enjoy watching Malayalam movies where filmmakers present themes that others wouldn’t dare to dream of. The performances and cinematography are all brilliant. My personal favourite is Thaniyavarthanam starring southern superstar Mammooty.

I love reading Ayn Rand's works and I think that The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged are great. What I like about her is how she advocates a merit-based society.

I have a penchant for history. So, Rome is a city that really stayed with me. When I visited the place, it felt like I had lived there forever.  I fondly remember my visit to St. Peter’s Basilica, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Colosseum. I would recommend the virtual reality show on the evolution of Roman civilisation.

I love cricket. I have personally enjoyed watching GR Vishwanath and Alvin Kallicharran play. The game is very different now. Earlier, it was more about a player's individual style than about runs or wickets.

Being a Malayalee, I savour the food from Kerala, especially the breakfast items. I relish eating Appams with stew as they use very little oil and are delicious. There is also a special Tirunelveli halwa that can be found only in particular shops in the town down south and I often crave for it.
