I mostly flip through management books and the ones that have case studies make for a good read. Dare to Lead by Brene Brown is my favourite. The book lists courage and vulnerability as must-have characteristics for every new-age leader. It reignited my desire to influence people in my circle by setting a strong example.

I am very selective when it comes to movies, but survival dramas intrigue me the most. Robert Zemeckis’ Cast Away is one of my favourite picks. It depicts the bravery of Tom Hanks’ character, who survives on an uninhabited island for five years. The hardships faced by him in the film can make one brood over the meaning of life.

I am a diehard fan of Formula One and have proudly passed it on to my son. It is exciting to watch the races with him while discussing the racing strategies. I also play Basketball, a game I fell in love with when I was 12.

I absolutely love Italian cuisine. For me, nothing beats the traditional Neapolitan pizza and pasta.

My favourite destination is Dubrovnik in southern Croatia. A UNESCO world heritage site, the dazzling city faces the Adriatic Sea. Its Old Town is renowned for Stradun (Placa) street. The city’s compact size makes it a cozy getaway destination. It is an absolute pleasure to drink in the neighbouring cafes while the city patron, St Blaise, watches over.
