Favourite Movie

My all-time favourite is Guide (1965) for its timeless essence. The Dev Anand and Waheeda Rahman-starrer, based on a novel by R.K. Narayan, revolves around the life of a small-time tourist guide in a charming Indian town and his profound journey of self-discovery. The film beautifully portrays the idea that genuine happiness resides within oneself.

Favourite Book

One of my long-standing favourite reads is The Upside of Irrationality by Dan Ariely. Currently, I am re-reading Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. These unconventional books provide intriguing insights into how seemingly logical notions may not always hold true. Perhaps my curiosity is piqued due to the interesting times we are currently living in.

Favourite Sport

Golf. It demands patience and reminds players of the importance of paying attention to details. It teaches self-discipline, as players must practise focus and control in every shot. Golf is a unique blend of skill and precision, which makes it an enjoyable and humbling sport for me.

Favourite Cuisine

I am an absolute admirer of rich flavours and fresh ingredients. Italian cuisine, which is a combination of both, is my favourite.

Favourite Holiday Destination

I love New York for its vibrant energy, unique vibe and sense of independence. It exudes a spirit of hope and possibility, which is contagious. Moreover, the city offers an endless array of activities and experiences, ensuring that there is always something exciting to do and discover.
