My Favourite

 My favourite band is Steely Dan. They had a very new-age sound and I think they were making music way ahead of their time.

Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction is a blind favourite, personally. That movie redefined filmmaking for a lot of people. There are so many iconic aspects to it.

I prefer reading autobiographies instead of fiction. I just finished reading Bob Marley’s biography and found the whole idea of music being a big part of the Rastafarian religion fascinating.

I recently visited the Andaman islands — the place just blew my mind. There are no parties, no beach beds, no shacks, there is nothing there; it is absolutely pristine. 

I am primarily a malt and beer man; I liked the Bunnahabhain 12 YO malt that I had sampled recently. But our desi Kingfisher works just as well for me.
