What are you reading at the moment? What did you recently finish reading? What have you learnt from it?

Currently I am reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown  as well as the Isha Upanishad. The latter is a brilliant book which while speaking on the sutras of the Upanishad address both timeless and timely issues and thoughts that escape ones notice in the clamour of daily life.


The one book all leaders must read...

The Mahabharata as it is a book that touches upon everything from love, betrayal, politics, ethics, diplomacy, dialogues reconciliation and peace.


One book everyone in your sector should pick up...

Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R Covey and The Autobiography Of A Yogi by Swami Yogananda


What kind of books would you normally buy while travelling?

I tend to read the works of fiction on the best seller list as well as historical and spiritual books while travelling.


Have you written any books? If not, do you plan to write in future?

No, I haven't written any books as yet.


The books you grew up with? What did you like most about it?

I read Indrajaal comics, books by Enid Blyton, the Hardy Boys series, P.G. Wodehouse, Roald Dahl, Ayn Rand and other fictional authors


Where do you shop for books?

I buy books at bookstores such as Strand and Crossword and also  bookshops at airports.


Have your reading habits changed in the past four or five years? If so, how....

Yes, I  read more spiritual and history books than what I used to earlier.


One book you cherish that you received as a gift... and who gave it to you.

The Power Of Now  by Eckhart Tolle.
