SpringML: Best vacation you’ve been to?
Abhishek: I had traveled to Rajasthan when I was a kid. At that age, I was inspired and was amazed to see the architectural layout and designs of the forts, which were built years back. The museum displayed the clothes worn by the people at that time and being a kid I used to compare my clothes with those heavy clothes and used to think how could they wear such heavy clothes in this heat! Weapons of those ages were one of the essential things that used to take away my interest.

How do you find a work/life balance?
