I enjoy both fiction and nonfiction. Currently, I am reading Darren Hardy’s The Compound Effect, a book on self-discipline. I have always been an ardent fan of Roald Dahl, who wrote both for children and adults. I have read his entire collection of stories. The Harry Potter series, works of RK Narayan, Agatha Christie and (in comics) Calvin & Hobbes and Asterix are a few of my eternal favourites. 

I am a Simon and Garfunkel fan, and enjoy their classic hits like The Sound of Silence, I Am A Rock and, especially, the sound track from The Graduate. I also listen to Carnatic classical and Hindi film music.

I love drawing as it’s a great way to express your emotions. My busy schedule, however, does not give me enough time for it. But I stay involved by helping my daughters with their artwork.

Some of my most memorable moments were on trips to Toronto, Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) and Cambodia. The sights and sounds of each of these cities are unique; you lose yourself in their cultures and the breath-taking natural beauty. Cambodia is a less-known tropical paradise and I enjoy its cuisine, especially the local spicy salad.
