“I always wanted to own an MF Husain painting. But I used to find him very cruel on canvas. All I wanted was a happy painting for my wall and I finally came across a relaxing painting by him, and purchased it for my home in 2000. It was from the Madhuban series and depicted peace and happiness.”

“My earrings that I am wearing are the most expensive thing that I ever bought. I walked into my jewellery store [in Trinidad and Tobago] one day and as soon as I saw them, I knew I had to buy them.”

“Apart from my wedding ring, it’s got to be the cross necklace I wear. I’m petrified of losing it. I got it in Piccadilly in London. It’s from the 1800s and is an Egyptian Coptic cross, made out of metal from the coins that were used during the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It’s a rare piece.”

“It was a phenomenal piece of heritage furniture that I gifted myself for my 40th birthday. It’s a 200-year-old Indo Dutch cupboard from Bhatkal. The first thing that hits you is its beauty, then the period it came from and how beautifully it has been restored. If you look at it today, you would think it’s brand new. I picked it up from Mahindra Doshi in Mumbai. I was instantly tempted.”

“My new red Louis Vuitton sneakers. They are a gift from my wife though there was no special occasion. When we went into the store, she saw them and said, ‘These are exactly the kind you should be buying or gifted.’”
