One book you recommend to all the marketers: No Logo by Naomi Klein, though it came out in 1999, it is even more relevant today. All marketers know marketing, but it is critical to get an insight into the other side, the ethics debate and the shift to responsible business.
One campaign that remains your all-time favorite and why? The iconic Amul outdoor campaign. I have grown up on it and that campaign triggered by passion for the business of brands. Lately I absolutely loved the Google global campaign. Seamless, right on target and terribly persuasive global messaging.
A mantra that you adhere to in your work-life: Each day is the first day of the rest of my life both at work and otherwise
One thing that one will find on your work desk: An Apple
One gadget that you cannot do without @work : My iPad
