In my leisure, I love to curl up in the corner of the house with culinary books and I have a special interest in cooking and baking. Besides cooking, gardening is another interest of mine. From my childhood, I have watched my mother rearing plants on my terrace, I have always helped her. Now, I do the gardening myself. I am interested in colourful flowers and growing seasonal flower-like petunias and dahlias. There is a section in my terrace reserved only for roses. And during the offseason, my crotons keep me busy. Sometimes I love to play computer games. I love to decorate the house with those plants. I would love to meet friends to spend a healthy time watching movies in the hall and spent some time having food in a speciality restaurant. I love to bake confectionery items. I like to meet diverse kinds of people, learn about the cultures of people belonging to different places, and especially interested in learning about their cuisine, various customs they follow. I find it refreshing to interact with people who live in different environments. I am a person who is quite reasonable in approach towards life with a mix of seriousness & humour, has a deeper understanding of things. I am strongly against Divorce, Dowry & Deceptions like engagements. Circumstantial proof of Deception leads me to have divorced by the year 2015 and right now I am single without any botheration. I am fully aware of all kinds of engagements of life. In my life, I had friends, so I have enough knowledge on how to upkeep happiness of a person about food, beverage, travel spots for taking out, etc. As a self-motivated individual with a positive approach, I can lead and motivate others whilst delivering effective business results. I have a track record of achieving targets in all areas of hospitality, including guest satisfaction, reward enrolment and much more. I can implement and maintain the highest standards of hotel service and deliver unforgettable guest service.
Possessing superb commercial acumen, I am more than able to grow revenues and maximize the financial performance of any hotel department. With my strong communication, leadership, analytical, planning, coordination and relationship management skills, self-motivation and exploiting challenging deadlines, I can strive for any organization. My immediate goal is to get into the managerial role but in the initial five years of my working experience and my ultimate aim is to become a successful entrepreneur in the hospitality and tourism business. I regard my father as my true source of inspiration as he is the most honest considerate and diligent person I have ever come across in my life. That was just a summary of my journey so far however if you would like to know any future details I would love to share.
