Vishal Koul

I listen to discourses on the Vedanta philosophy whenever I can, especially on Sunday mornings. I am hooked to it as it helped me change my perspectives about the universe.

The foothills of the Himalayas are my ultimate getaway. I can never have enough of the serenity in this region. Watching the sun rise over the mountains and hearing the rush of the wind through the pine trees is an experience by itself.

I’m a die-hard fan of Raj Kapoor’s films and my favourite is Mera Naam Joker. Bhuvan Shome by Mrinal Sen is another favourite and is a must-watch for those who appreciate lucid visual depictions of the inner and outer conflicts faced by human beings.

I enjoy the work of author Jeffrey Archer. My personal favourite is Paths of Glory because of its teachings on how determination and humility can transform ordinary human beings.

I like trying out food from all parts of the world. Since I have been living in the city of Delhi for many years, I enjoy the local kebabs and parathas.
