Chillout: #ARM Worldwide CEO loves long walks, vacations and Bob Dylan

Good music, introspection and spending time with his little girl are Manas Gulati's favourite ways of unwinding

From crossing a wooden bridge in Bhutan to having a beach-blast at Greece, Manas Gulati, Co-Founder & CEO, #ARM Worldwide, is quite a travel junkie. Immersing himself in good music, long walks and spending time with his little bundle-of-joy remain his favourite ways of unwinding. Gulati shares his idea of a weekend escape, how he updates his skills, his upcoming vacation plans and more...

On a typical weekend you will find me...
Previously, my weekends were all about my "me time" with my wife. I am big sports enthusiast and weekends were all about playing cricket or soccer. However, now that I'm a daddy to the sweetest two-year-old daughter, I try and spend my larger time playing with her over weekends.

My idea of relaxing is...
There are a lot of things I do to relax. I love long walks after dinner to reflect on my day and plan for the next. For relaxation on-the-go, music is what I head to. I have playlists of Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel and many other of my favourite artistes which I dive into once or twice a day to find serenity.

One vice I cannot do without...
Want to cut down a few hours of watching TV.

I love a Staycation/adventure...
When you work on what you love, everyday is a staycation! (Laughs) I'm more of an adventure type, all credit to my wife Shreya for that. It has been like clockwork where every year we plan a long trip together. Last we were crossing a wooden bridge in Bhutan and before that we were chilling in the evening, enjoying beach winds of Greece.


I confess, I am a...
This one's tricky! I can confess that despite being a time management junkie, I also procrastinate. Ever since I was a student I have been conscious about this. Still, there are lazy days and we all love them, right?!

I spend me-time on...
Sports and sweating it out at my club's cricket matches or, over squash with my company's co-founder and great friend Abhishek. Other times when I'm not sweating it out, I love catching re-runs of my favourite TV shows, specifically House of Cards and FRIENDS.

The last show I binge watched...

I can make a mean...
This would be so really easy and short - Maggi! If I wouldn't have to be so really mean to my meal, I'll cut and fry few veggies to go with it!

A skill/hobby I want to learn this year...
This year, my focus is to keep up with the data analytics trends in the industry. It requires me to go back to my math theories and statistics books from college sometimes. Coming to hobbies, I'd love spending my time reading books. 

My next vacation/adventure will be ...
As a matter of fact, this is currently under discussion between Shreya and me. Most probably, we are planning to visit Scotland and London. For more updates, be socially connected with us on
