What’s keeping you two busy these days?
Sunjay: Our new born baby. We are super excited about the new addition to our family. I always wanted a big family, we have four children altogether now. It couldn’t get better!
Priya: Definitely, our son Azarias. We have entered a beautiful phase of our life and enjoying every minute of it.
You are both entrepreneurs. Are there any collaborations in the pipeline?
Sunjay: We share our work days with each other that gives us an opportunity to discuss our businesses with each other. I rely on Priya’s instinct when it comes to hiring key management and her experience from her days in banking. We bounce a lot of ideas off each other. We make a great team!
Priya: We would love to work together. However, as of now there are no plans to
collaborate. We do, of course, discuss work with each other. Never say never, we might just think of an opportunity to work together.
One quality about your partner that you really admire?
Sunjay: Her determination and will to win. She never gives up; from work to yoga to convincing me to do the things she thinks are right for us or me.
Priya: Sunjay is a team player and is extremely punctual. I like the way he respects both his and others’ time, despite being extremely busy. His commitment towards his family, work, sports, his general fitness and living a healthy life are the qualities that I really admire in him.
One thing about your partner that irks you?
Sunjay: Her need to clean and sanitise everything around us.
Priya: His boredom! He gets bored very fast and has a need to constantly stay busy.
