* Kane & Able by Jeffrey Archer – A marvelous story bringing alive multiple emotions in the struggle to build fortunes.
* A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khalid Hosseini – It’s a beautiful story set against the volatile history of Afghanistan that brought out the role of education in women’s lives.
* The Kite Runner by Khalid Hosseini – It’s a story of two friends from different socio – economic backgrounds but forging a deep bond that transcends politics, war and economics.
* The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams – An extraordinary trilogy that I have read twice. A wacky adventurous story that literally takes you to the end of the world.
* Many Lives Many Masters by Dr Brian Weiss – This book on past life therapy has truly given a new meaning to my life.
* Casablanca – Classic love triangle set against the backdrop of wartime conflict. It’s a potboiler with everything going for it.
* Hangover – It’s a mindless laugh riot that is completely over the top. You can’t wait for the next scene to unfold.
* Life is Beautiful – It’s a movie that touches your heart and moves you. It’s a poignant story of life and love set against the backdrop of World War II.
* Dabangg – This is what I call “full on” entertainment with mind blowing music and masti – total paisa vasool.
* Mughal e Azam – A classic love story told in a lavish manner. This is one of the biggest box office hits in Indian cinema.
* Tere Ishq Ne Nachaya by Abida Parveen - Abida Parveen sings love songs and induces spiritual ecstasy with her majestic voice.
* Teri Deewani from Kailaasa – Kailash Kher has an earthy rustic voice that emanates straight from the belly to the listener’s heart.
* Mustt Mustt album by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – I adore Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and his music. All his Qawwalis are a benchmark as far the devotional sufi music is con cerned.
* Tere Mast Mast Do Nain by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan – Rahat has a vocal mastery and all his songs have great emotional power.
* RD Burman– Collection of forever songs – Right from Padosan to Amar Prem to Aa Gale Lag Jaa to Sholay – all his songs have an evergreen quality and can never go out of vogue.
