From wine and the Myntra CEO to Mohandas Pai's digital detox and Anu Acharya's poetry - your weekend fix


Can wine be paired with bisi bele bhat? Can you get people to bond over a bottle of wine? Should you overpay for good wine? It is questions like these that Ananth Narayanan, CEO Myntra can answer with ease as he is a wine connoisseur par excellence. He is a wine collector who goes by the region, soil, grape variety and the year, when it comes to purchasing a bottle of wine. His vacations revolve around wine destinations and his wine cellar is a collector's dream.
