My preferred film genre is biopics, where historical actors are vividly brought to life, blending entertainment with learning. I find the combination most enjoyable. Classics like Schindler’s List and, more recently, the brilliant series Rocket Boys exemplify this captivating fusion of education and entertainment.
My choice of a favourite book has undergone a transformation. During my 20s, The Secret History by Donna Tartt captivated me. Its intricate narrative intertwines seamlessly with my fascination for mythology. In more recent years, my literary preference has shifted to the world of data interpretation. Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner is an enduring favourite as is Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell. I love the way these books challenge conventional thinking, making the reading experience not just an exploration but also a great source of entertainment.
A decade ago, I was an avid Formula 1 enthusiast—a sport that beautifully exemplifies the importance of teamwork and synergy for success. I was captivated by the speed, engines, drivers and intricate pit strategies. Now I do not have a favourite sport but find enjoyment in watching tennis and gymnastics for their grace, skill and individual prowess.
Indian spicy street food. It is simply delicious. The regional choices and flavours leave one spoilt. Ever since I was a child, I have eaten street food and I have to thank it as it has blessed me with a fairly sturdy constitution.
Favourite Holiday Destination
The Maldives. It feels like heaven has touched the earth. However, my heart and soul find permanent residence in New York. I love the rhythm, the organised chaos, the exploration through its streets, the freedom of expression, etc. It allows me to just be.
