Atul Lall, Vice Pres­i­dent Op­er­a­tions and Gen­eral Man­ager, The Clar­idges Ho­tels & Re­sorts, says be­ing an army of­fi­cer’s son and liv­ing alone for a con­sid­er­able time teaches you to keep your­self en­ter­tained. Lall has a soft cor­ner for all an­i­mals and en­joys keep­ing pets. “I have two dogs. I am al­ways happy to be out­doors. I have four cars and a bike. Driv­ing or rid­ing a ve­hi­cle on un­sur­faced roads or tracks gives me im­mense plea­sure. I do track rac­ing and off-roading al­most ev­ery week­end. I love to go to the Buddh Cir­cuit for track rac­ing and I go to as far as Jaipur for off-roading. In June, I am headed to Leh on a bike.”

Talk­ing Peo­ple is a spe­cial ded­i­cated cor­ner, cre­ated as a sound­ing board for who’s who of the In­dian and In­ter­na­tional travel in­dus­try. With Talk­ing Peo­ple, it is our en­deav­our to bring you face-to-face with peo­ple. Con­trib­uted by: Megha Paul & Pe­den Doma Bhutia

Mar­ion Walsh-He­douin, VP-Mar­ket­ing Com­mu­ni­ca­tions & Pub­lic Re­la­tions, Mi­nor Ho­tel Group, in­forms, “I have a daugh­ter, who is just two years. And now I am ex­pect­ing another baby in Oc­to­ber. So, the last one year, we have gone on a num­ber of fam­ily hol­i­days.” He­douin’s best hol­i­day last year was va­ca­tion­ing in South Africa. Talk­ing about her cur­rent so­journ in In­dia, she says, “We ar­rived in In­dia re­cently, went to Ra­jasthan and stayed in Udaipur. Go­ing up to Lake Pi­chola for din­ner was one of the best ex­pe­ri­ences I have ever had.”

Su­mit Ku­mar, Gen­eral Man­ager, Hy­att Place Hampi, shares, “I am trained in mar­tial arts and I'm a black belt in it. I have spe­cialised in fe­male self-de­fence which teaches how to use fe­male ac­ces­sories like du­patta, hair pin, etc., to de­fend your­self. I also im­part train­ing to my col­leagues as part of a CSR ini­tia­tive and to cre­ate aware­ness as well. I’m very fond of trav­el­ling and have been around the world. My favourite des­ti­na­tion is Is­tan­bul. I love the place for its vi­brant cul­ture, the food is also amaz­ing and pro­vides a great blend of Asian and Euro­pean in­flu­ences. The hos­pi­tal­ity there is some­thing worth men­tion­ing, not to for­get the ar­chi­tec­ture.”
