I grew up with music very much in my life. I achieved success by combining my training as an accountant with my family upbringing and love of music.
My paternal grandfather Rustom Mehta had a huge influence on me because of his ethics and his values.
Too many people dwell on the past: the thing is to get on with life.
I think in all cultural organizations there has to be renewal. I'm also of a certain age that someone new can come in with a breath of fresh air. Things change, and I think that's important.
Accountancy prepares one to be able to run very different kinds of businesses, and my background prepared me for the music.
