The job: I have always been in a start-up or in turnaround situations. This is the challenge that excites me, I love the fact that once again I have a similar opportunity – to evangelise the Indian market in the space of virtual shopping – on TV, web and mobile. The fact that we have three platforms aligned to each layer of the consumer pyramid respectively makes it complex but very exciting.
The weekdays: I start my day early and wake up around 5:45am. Working out is essential for me so I to hit the gym for one and a half hours. I alternate my gym time with running on some days. After a good workout, I get little time to hug my kids and head to office. Work begins at around 10 am and the whole day is dedicated to meetings, briefings and discussions with my team. The most fun aspect of coming in to work is getting the sheer understanding about the consumers by crunching data or talking to people. I look forward to creating a unique business offering for the customers at HomeShop18. After a good day’s work, I switch off from work at around 8:30-9pm when I reach home. Healthy dinner is followed by surfing TV channels, mainly watching news to get a daily update of the happenings takes up time at home.
The weekend: My weekend is dedicated to family, friends, fitness and a bit to my spiritual side. I aim to spend quality time with my wife and children, go out for picnics, movies and meet my friends and family that get neglected over the week.
4The toys: My favorite toys have to be my iPhone and my home theatre system. I can’t do without my iPhone which offers utility and entertainment apps for everyday use. Besides that I love my home theatre set up which is a 7 feet screen packed with great speakers. This is where I enjoy a lot of movies with family and friends and try to keep myself updated with the latest in cinema.
The logos: It’s very difficult to say I am loyal to any specific brand. If I talk about phones, iPhone is my preferred option over any other phone that I have used. This is the only device that is my all-time favourite.
