Be­hind the wheel: I keep chang­ing cars fre­quently. Cur­rently I drive a Re­nault Duster.

Big­gest pas­sion: Ten­nis.

Gad­get I can’t live with­out: My mo­bile phone.

Week­ends are for: Tak­ing a break and re­ju­ve­nat­ing. Hate the most: There is noth­ing that I feel so strongly neg­a­tive about.

Fa­vorite movies: Die Hard, Ter­mi­na­tor 2 and DDLJ.

Fa­vorite stars: Amitabh Bachchan and Sean Con­nery. Role model: There are many achiev­ers in dif­fer­ent fields I ad­mire, but I do not have any role model. Ul­ti­mate am­bi­tion: To make a dif­fer­ence, and raise the bar in what­ever I do. Thing I most want to do: Travel across the world on hol­i­days. If I be­came the PM: I would put in place mea­sures to pro­tect the girl child, and women em­pow­er­ment. Celebrity I would like to spend a day with: Rafael Nadal. Amitabh Ja­cob, Di­rec­tor, Chan­nel, Sy­man­tec In­dia, is re­spon­si­ble for plan­ning and ex­e­cut­ing Sy­man­tec’s chan­nel and dis­tri­bu­tion strat­egy. With over 20 years of ex­pe­ri­ence, he has worked in com­pa­nies such as RSA, IBM, Sun and IT&T. If not in the IT in­dus­try: I would have been a sports­man.

Fa­vorite hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion: Phuket, Thai­land.

Wildest thing I have ever done: I am yet to do it.

Deep­est and dark­est fear: Plane crashes. One per­son I would like to meet, and why: Steve Jobs, to get some sense of how to cre­ate a cul­ture of con­stant in­no­va­tion, and how to con­tin­u­ously raise the bar.
