Vi­jay Kr­ish­nan, Gen­eral Man­ager, Alila Fort Bis­hangarh, un­winds by lis­ten­ing to mu­sic of Eric Clap­ton, Ste­vie Won­der and Mod­ern Talk­ing. “I most pas­sion­ate about my job and the peo­ple I work with. I also en­joy sports. One thing about me that not many peo­ple know is that I am a huge cricket fan and keep track of all crick­et­ing records,” he says. Travel is also one of his pas­sions. “When hol­i­day­ing in In­dia, I like vis­it­ing Kochi and in­ter­na­tion­ally I pre­fer Dubai as a hol­i­day desti­na­tion,” he re­veals. Varun Gupta, CEO, Goomo.com, un­winds by run­ning or play­ing foot­ball or golf. “I am also very pas­sion­ate about cook­ing and love ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent cuisines. One thing that not many peo­ple know about me is that I stud­ied ho­tel man­age­ment for 6 months and had to wait ta­bles at the The Taj Ma­hal Palace in Mum­bai,” he says. Travel is also one of his must-dos. Gupta re­veals about his favourite hol­i­day spot, “I pre­fer hol­i­day­ing in Hi­machal Pradesh when in In­dia and Cape Town when trav­el­ling in­ter­na­tion­ally.” ‘Don’t wa­ter the rocks’ is the motto that Steven Dixon, Tourism New Zealand’s Re­gional Man­ager-South and South East Asia lives by. “I be­lieve that one should not waste en­ergy on things that are not go­ing to grow,” he says. He gets in­spired by pos­i­tive and ac­tive peo­ple. In­ter­ested in read­ing while trav­el­ling, Dixon dab­bles in all gen­res from hor­ror to med­i­ta­tive. When it comes to travel, he loves des­ti­na­tions About In­dia, he feels, “Ev­ery desti­na­tion is dif­fer­ent, whether it’s South In­dia or Goa, Delhi or Ahmed­abad.”
