Why Indian brands fail

Financial Express 07.04.2012

THIS YEAR I decided on Jammu and Kashmir for a family vacation. Srinagar was a great choice as, in addition to religious sites, it is a remarkably peaceful and attractive city with some of the most pleasant and happiest people I’ve met anywhere. My wife, Anita, and I had a holiday filled with great food, shopping, and exploration of this beautiful part of the world.

Warm weather is approaching and it is time to ponder upon what you’ll wear during the balmy days of Spring and Summer.

Recovering from a minor surgery, I have not travelled for five weeks. With business to take care of abroad, I’ll soon be on the road (and in the skies) again.

Drinking Well the French Way

Financial Express 22.01.2012

In a previous column I discussed some of the highlights of a luxury visit to Paris, but I think it is in the stunning French countryside where this nation offers the most memorable experiences. From the warm sunshine of Provence and coastal beauty of the Cote D’Azur to the quiet river valleys of the Dordogne and the towering Alps, getting out of the cities leads you to the heart of France.
