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.
