One of the best drinks in India is coconut water. It is a refreshing drink that I immensely enjoy. Bonus: it is a super healthy refreshment and cools you down as well. 

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a riveting story with great animation. It is particularly special to me since it is my daughter’s first technical contribution at DreamWorks Animation. 

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas epitomises masterful storytelling and depicts a fascinating range of human characters and emotions, from the devious and scheming to the sublimely noble. 

When in India, I prefer a traditional south Indian three-course meal, which is simple yet delicious. Overseas, I like the Eggplant Parmigiana at the Olive Garden chain with its delightful garnish of cheese and herbs.

 I love New Zealand — nowhere else can you see snow-clad mountains, azure blue waters, dark cavernous forests, rolling landscapes of green, ominous volcanoes and friendly people in such close proximity.
