Things They Like: Rajesh Jain
Jain’s favourite gadget is his ‘user-friendly and technologically competent’ iPhone 5. The fact that he’s accustomed to the phone’s functionality and sleek design also helps it remain top of his list. 
 
Books are something Jain is extremely fond of. He doesn’t restrict himself to one book or one subject and looks towards multiple sources. Spencer Johnson’s ‘Who Moved My Cheese’ tops the list.
 
The foodie in Jain recommends Oriental Express at Taj Palace on Sardar Patel Marg in New Delhi. Reasons for this is not only the food and service but the ambience as well.
 
Movies that are among his favourites are those with a ‘strong and crisp plot’ and those that connect ‘socially and morally’ with the audience. He prefers thrillers and comedy over drama and romantic movies. His all time favourite is ‘How Green was my Valley’ based on the novel by Richard Llewellyn. The Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Anand is another that stands out.
 
When it comes to music, it’s Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle ruling Jain’s playlist, bringing in ‘rejuvenation and calm’.
