Dear Read­ers

MillionaireAsia India - - Editor's Note - Pari­neeta Sethi

Trav­el­ling has been an in­trin­sic part of our lives be­cause the hu­man spirit thrives on a sense of dis­cov­ery. It is thrilling to ar­rive at a new des­ti­na­tion, to ex­pe­ri­ence the sights and sounds of peo­ple, cul­tures, cities and civil­i­sa­tions. Trav­el­ling, to a large ex­tent, forms the core of the global ci­ti­zen.

It does go with­out say­ing that there is only one way to travel – ab­so­lutely first class. That is the rea­son why this edi­tion of Mil­lion­airea­sia In­dia is ded­i­cated to travel and lux­ury, a com­pelling com­bi­na­tion that has no down­side.

When it comes to the twin con­cepts of travel and lux­ury, there is no one that un­der­stands it bet­ter than Nakul Anand. The Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of ITC Ho­tels, Nakul has been at the fore­front of the cor­po­rate gi­ant’s hos­pi­tal­ity ver­ti­cal, spear­head­ing it with great suc­cess and ush­er­ing in an age of Re­spon­si­ble Lux­ury which has made ITC Ho­tels the ‘Green­est Lux­ury Ho­tel Chain in the World’.

In an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Mil­lion­airea­sia, Nakul shares his point of view on the growth of In­dia’s hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor and on creating lux­ury value propo­si­tions within the coun­try. He de­scribes In­dia as “prob­a­bly one of the best mar­kets in the world right now.”

Des­ti­na­tions are the of this edi­tion and we bring you ev­ery­thing, from pic­ture per­fect vis­tas to the lux­ury shop­ping cap­i­tals of the world. The glit­ter­ing splen­dour of some of the most ex­pen­sive re­tail av­enues around the globe are an op­u­lent coun­ter­point to ex­traor­di­nar­ily gor­geous nat­u­ral phe­nom­e­non of the Aurora Bo­re­alis. To­gether, they book­end the theme of Travel and Lux­ury seam­lessly.

There is a school of thought which be­lieves that noth­ing beats the ex­pe­ri­ence of head­ing out on an open high­way. It is ab­so­lutely true and if you hap­pen to do it in the spank­ing new Jeep, the thrill gets mul­ti­plied many times over. Ri­aan Ja­cob George road tests the ride for us and rec­om­mends it highly.

We are now right in the mid­dle of the sea­son of fes­tiv­i­ties. There is no time like right now to step out and dis­cover new des­ti­na­tions, new hori­zons and a brand new you. Stay wealthy, stay happy.
