"It is our opinion of things that determines how we feel about a particular event, not the event itself."


EX: Biggest milestone in your life.
HIM: When I was 12, my father gave me an option to choose between education and cricket. I preferred to continue with my education leaving behind cricket, which is closer to my heart. Now the Indian cricket team vice captain endorses my brand and I feel that is a milestone achieved.

EX: Book(s) that have influenced your life.
HIM: There are two books that have influenced me a lot. One, ‘Manual for Living’ and the other is a Telugu language book, ‘Thappu Chedham Randi’ by Yandamuri Virendranath.

EX: An unusual app on your smartphone.
HIM: There are a couple of apps on my phone to name a few, Tinder and PubG. These are unusual since I rarely get the time to play a mobile game and also, I am happily married.

EXThe next product on your tech-wishlist.
HIM: Magic Leap One is the next tech product I’m planning to buy.

EX: 3 habits you think are most important in order to be an effective leader.
HIM: Read, listen, and deliberate practice and hard work.

EX: The best tech innovation according to you.
HIM:  The Mars Translation Earbuds are the best tech innovation so far. It reduces the boundaries between people and makes this world a connected place.

EXYour ideas and views on sustainable technology
HIM: I prefer to focus more on sustainable living because it is every individual’s duty to make this world a better place, for future generations to live in.

EX: Your upcoming career goals
HIM: Making ‘Conekt’ available across the world is our next goal. As part of this, we have already established our branches in Canada, Germany and Australia. By the end of this year Conekt will be available in at least 50 countries worldwide.
