Bharath Ma­hade­van, Coun­try Head (In­dia), Scoot, be­lieves in liv­ing each day like it's the last. “One day you'll get it right that way! I don’t be­lieve in hav­ing any ex­ter­nal in­spi­ra­tion in life. I com­pete with my­self and set my own bench­marks,” he says. He en­joys read­ing and his favourite book is The Art of

Think­ing Clearly Clear­lyy by Rolf Do­belli. Travel is another in­dul­gence. “UK and Scot­land are heaven on earth. Mal­dives on the other hand is heaven on wa­ter. But my favourite Sin­ga­pore Air­lines suites. It was heaven in the air,” Ma­hade­van adds.

Su­mit Ku­mar, Gen­eral Man­ager, Hy­att Pune, be­lieves in spread­ing hap­pi­ness and pos­i­tiv­ity wher­ever he goes. He is in­spired by self-made peo­ple. “I am mo­ti­vated by in­di­vid­u­als who achieve great heights purely through their own hard work and per­se­ver­ance – go-get­ters like MS Dhoni,” he says. Ku­mar en­joys trav­el­ling and his favourite hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion is Viet­nam for its beaches, pago­das, rivers, abun­dant nat­u­ral beauty and cui­sine. His favourite book is The Se­cret by Rhonda Byrne. It’s only been two months since Namita Kha­tri took charge as the High Com­mis­sioner of Fiji to In­dia. Kha­tri hasn't trav­elled in In­dia much but she has been to many places around the world. “All the places I have trav­elled to have been lovely and each of them have their own charm,” she says. Kha­tri loves to read, but hasn't been able to catch up on it as she spends most of her free time with her two year old son. The last book she read was The Forty Rules of Love by Turk­ish writer Elif Safak.
