I bought this Mont Blanc pen 21 years ago. It's always with me no matter where I go or what I do, and I have really looked after it all these years. I use it every single day without fail; whether it's for signing important documents or just taking notes. In fact, during any puja, when the pundit asks me to put something forward, I always proffer this pen.

Bags are my ultimate fetish. Diesel's Black Gold line has some very handy suede and leather bags, one of which I'm a proud owner of. I also love bags by the Indian-born, UK-based designer Jas M.B., whose cutting edge designs have made him popular across the globe. And when it comes to watches, it's a classic Tag Heuer that makes me tick.

I have a fetish for shoes, both formal and informal. Here, I've got on the Versace shoes that I bought for my brother-in-law's 40th birthday party in San Francisco. I needed a pair to go with my clothes, and my sister helped me find these. Ever since, they've become my favourite. They're very comfortable and stand out whenever I wear them.

Punctuality, precision and perfection are my guiding virtues. For these to work in tandem, my most valued companion is my watch. It is my favourite accessory as well as a necessity. I have a good collection which includes pieces I have acquired on trips abroad. My personal favourite is a Rado which combines the precision of Swiss watchmaking with contemporary styling.
