When travel is a treat

Financial Express 27.10.2011

NOTHING CAN make or break a trip like a long-haul flight. Fortunately, you have some options that can help transform your travel experience into a real treat. Most of us first consider the mundane issues getting a reasonable price, loyalty points, and, of course, flights that match busy meeting schedules. Regular fliers, who value the journey as much as the destination, go a step further to consider their flight options based on the 'hard product' mainly the seat, in-flight entertainment, amenity kits, and even onboard bars versus the 'soft product' - principally the service, food and wine.

Financial Express 26.10.2011

NEWYORK. I have visited the city a number of times but some how just the name still conjures up the same excitement I had for the place,or at least the idea of it, as a boy in Lucknow yearning to explore the great cities of the world.Much of my enthusiasm for NewYork centres on its status as a premiere culinary destination. From pizza and hot dogs to the myriad cuisines of the diverse communities that make New York their home,it is a place famous for its food.

The Business of iPad Travel

Posted on 19.11.2010

When the iPad was first released I wondered how it would be integrated into people’s lives. Was it to become just another personal entertainment system or something more useful as a business tool? As leaders in a fast changing business world, we are often the first to explore new technologies and identify solutions that make our lives easier and our companies more efficient. It was with this in mind that i purchased an iPad and took it with me on my business trips around the world.

Behind the lebua Dining Experience

Posted on 19.11.2010

We recently re-launched one of our signature restaurants, Breeze at The Dome, lebua. During the glittering champagne cocktail and dinner that we organized, a number of people asked me where I came up with the new restaurant concept.

The Christmas Lunch

Posted on 25.12.2009

It’s Christmas and I am penning down this post as I just wipe my fingers after the day’s lunch. Well, in reality it was not just one meal but a delectable sequence of lip smacking dishes – each one well seasoned with intricate memories of my boyhood. My only companion for this exciting food-filled day was my dearest friend for last 12 years, my fiancé for 11 years and now my loving wife for the last 10, Anita. It has almost become a ritual for us to target a city each Christmas and savor the wide array of its street food. Last year it was Singapore and this year we chose Delhi, India.

The day started almost at dawn as I picked up Anita from her parent’s place braving the biting cold of the city. It paid off

Marketing is subject in today's world that probably has more gurus than students. Every author has their own perspective for the subject and different styles are in vogue.

Best Restaurants in New York

Posted on 07.12.2009

In my eventful stint with the Food and Beverage industry till date, I've been addressed by several favorable adjectives. Some went so far as to say that I was a guru in this discipline, a master of food of beverage and even possessed a Midas touch to create and even recreate glory for any restaurant. But little did they know that much of my experience came from watching and learning from numerous mistakes throughout my career. This links back to 1985, when I was stepping into my Hotel Management and my father left me with a single most important thought it is very easy to make money but equally hard to gain respect and so it is important for one not to shrug responsibility and to accept failures as they come.
