It has to be David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell. It is a provocative book and a great read.

Integrity is probably one of the greatest values of a leader. The Wolf of Wall Street is an excellent film that captures how greed, unscrupulous behaviour and excesses eventually take you down.  

I love Europe: it is such a beautiful and vibrant region, steeped in culture and history. While there, I take long walks and cycling trips to explore the flavours of the land and visit lesser-known places. 

I love anything that is fresh, green and lean. I like food that doesn’t weigh me down and unlike popular opinion, vegetarian food isn’t restrictive — it has a wide range of choices and health benefits.

Basketball is my favourite sport — you don’t need company to shoot some hoops, it’s just as easy to practise on your own. Playing the game with my daughters is a great stress-buster.

Claude Monet’s landscapes calm my mind. I have visited the vibrant gardens in France that were the inspiration behind his works. I also love Husain’s horses as they signify energy.
