"Take life as it comes, you will love it then."
EX: Biggest milestone in your life.
HIM: When Sennheiser was being launched in India, headphones as a category was non-existent and the audio industry was at a very nascent stage. Since then, the industry for audio technology in the country has grown multifold. Today, I can proudly say that we are the pioneers and have successfully established headphones as a category in India.
EX: Book(s) that have influenced your life.
HIM: ‘Discover Your Strengths’ by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton.
EX: An unusual app on your smartphone.
HIM: ‘Drink Water Reminder’ which is another step towards ensuring a healthy lifestyle for myself. Another app which I am loving these days is ‘Medium’.
EX: The next product on your tech-wishlist.

EX: The best tech innovation according to you.
HIM: I have been working in the audio industry for over a decade now and one innovation which is going to define the future of the audio industry is Augmented Reality.
EX: Your ideas and views on sustainable technology
HIM: Considering the pace at which the world is progressing today, adopting sustainable technology has become absolutely imperative. Until recently, we used to hear/read that if we want to save the environment and the planet for our future generations, we must act soon.
EX: Your upcoming career goals
HIM: My current goal is to establish Sennheiser as a leader in this space. When you have been doing something for as long as I have and have seen a brand evolve, your career goals tend to move away from only material goals such as designations and roles to something bigger – for me it is about continuing to add value.
