One of my most favourite books is The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, because it is relevant at all times.  It can be read again and again. I also like classics such as Pride and Prejudice and Rebecca. Currently, I’m reading Crossing Over by Gitanjali Mehta.

I listen to a lot of ghazals. They inspire me to pen poems as well as paint and express my thoughts with a riot of colours.

Gone With The Wind is my all-time favourite. I really liked A Beautiful Mind and also like evergreen movies such as Love Story, Mughal-e-Azam, My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music

I love Chinese cuisine, which is simple, never overcooked and has distinct flavours. I especially like the soups and stir-fried vegetables. Also, I enjoy home-cooked meals — soups, salads, yogurt, roti and hot dal

I have travelled extensively, but London, with its old mystique charm, is my favourite place for business, relaxation and sightseeing. While Mykonos in Greece, is another favourite, my weekend get-away place is our herb and flower farm near Delhi.
