Dear Read­ers

MillionaireAsia India - - Editor's Note - Pari­neeta Sethi

Why should one set­tle for a villa on a quaint hill­top when a com­plete island is at dis­posal? The best plan this year should be to cel­e­brate the sheer mag­ni­tude of our in­dul­gences. This an­niver­sary is­sue is a blue­print of that phi­los­o­phy. Our special sec­tion, Innite Lux­ury shifts the spot­light on ten ex­quis­ite ex­pe­ri­ences to sa­ti­ate our senses with. What is the pin­na­cle of sar­to­rial gratication? A di­a­mond­stud­ded, bul­let­proof and air-con­di­tioned suit. The ul­ti­mate trip of 2016? We say, an out­ing to the south­ern­most cor­ner of earth – Antarc­tica. A per­sonal sub­ma­rine, state-of-the-art he­li­copter, the most ex­pen­sive restau­rant in the world and a pet worth $ 1 mil­lion… and not to for­get, Buck island, a 43-acre per­sonal nir­vana point in the Caribbean. Take a peek into the lifestyle of a life­time. Just as sa­ti­a­tion and re­gale­ment is build deep in our genes so are the seeds of for­ti­tude. Naren­dra Bansal, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of In­tex Tech­nolo­gies (In­dia) Ltd. is a rst gen­er­a­tion en­trepreneur whose ir­refutable busi­ness acu­men has cre­ated one of the largest sell­ing mo­bile phones com­pa­nies of In­dia. His son Ke­shav Bansal, youngest en­trepreneur to own an In­dian Premier League (IPL) cricket team, is the sym­bol of a ven­tur­ous young who im­bibes tech­ni­cal know-how from his coun­ter­parts across the globe but be­lieves in his foun­da­tion of tra­di­tional wis­dom and judge­ment. Our cover story — The Alchemy of Sweet Suc­cess – in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ke­shav, de­codes Naren­dra’s strug­gles and long walk to vic­tory. This time we ex­am­ine the gas­tro­nom­i­cal kalei­do­scope down un­der. Syd­ney, a melt­ing pot of cul­tures, is a food haven for the adventurous and con­trolled alike. It of­fers a plethora of op­tions to suit all tastes, and one is cer­tainly in good com­pany with gor­geous views and ser­vices at these restau­rants. We also suc­cumb to Switzer­land’s ir­re­sistible charm. While the well-known parts of the Swiss na­tion have al­ways been on the lux­ury tourists’ radar, we ex­plore the un­charted east­ern parts through the UN­ESCO Her­itage certied Rhatis­che Bahn train net­work. Also in this is­sue, the hits and misses from our golng ex­trav­a­gan­zas, horo­log­i­cal pick­ings and fash­ion pro­nounce­ments this sea­son. Stay wealthy, stay happy.
