What is your ideal day: The definition of what I might treat as an ideal day keeps changing. However, at the end of any day, before going to sleep, if I end up smiling and thinking that I did something meaningful and it was not a waste of time, that is good enough.
What drives me the most: Curiosity to know more about everything that I come across. I need to know how things work, what makes everything around me tick.
What are the most important three things in my life: People around me who I care about, health for myself and everyone else and some money to get whatever else might be missing.
Favorite Gadget: At the moment, my PC which is a Lenovo Yoga 900.
Favorite food: Pasta, in white sauce please!
Favorite holiday destination: Southern Europe.
What are things I like to do alone: Thinking!!!! I like sitting in peace in a corner of my home doing nothing but wondering where I am and what I want to do.
Last book I read: Bring up the bodies by Hillary Mantel
If I could eliminate one thing from daily schedule, what would it be and why: Commuting in traffic. Spending hours of our lives doing nothing but waiting for the cars ahead of us to move seems like a huge wastage to me.
Which letter of the alphabet describes me best, how: That’s a tough one. I guess I could be described with the alphabet Y. Asking “why” about everything is probably something I do the most.
Most memorable Event: My graduation from college. I spend four years getting a degree and that day made me think a lot about what I had done and what more I needed to do. It changed me to a certain extent and I am glad it was the way it was.
One thing I like to change in myself: The habit to procrastinate. If I could, I would change this so that things get finished at least a little before the deadlines.
I never get tired of: Reading and talking. I love to read and I talk a lot!
5 years down the line I would be: Mostly the same I am today, just with some more wisdom, some more wealth, some more friends and some more happiness.
If not in IT industry, I would be: A lawyer. I like winning arguments!
Advice to budding Entrepreneurs: Perseverance. If you don’t give up, finding what you are striving for is just matter of time. So just keep trying.
What’s my motto in life: Pursue Excellence! Whatever I do, big or small, good or bad, I would like to excel in it.
