Corporate Jet-Setter: An Interview with Major Warren Gladstone, Vice President Chief Security Officer, Hinduja Global Solutions, Bengaluru

Q: Most Memorable trip to any destination?
Visiting Andaman and Nicobar Islands has been my most memorable trip ever. The history and beauty of the islands captivate one’s memories just like the Cellular Jail captivates the minds of historians.

Q: Your dream of going to?
Paris, for its wonderful sights, Eiffel Tower and the beautiful language. With a history steeped in romanticism, the opportunities for having a fulfilling time are endless in Paris.
Q: Favourite airline and why?
Undoubtedly Emirates. Hospitality and Gourmet experiences at Emirates are unparalleled to any other airline. The airline provides great support, comfort and ground handling services compared with other airlines.
Q: Best hotel experience and why?
The Marriot stands out on the international front, while I fancy ITC group of hotels in the Indian Subcontinent. Classy ambience and delectable food options are the best and consistent all over the world. Q: A place you plan to visit again?
Las Vegas and Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon captivates and mystifies you with what nature can do. The old adage “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” truly emboldens the fact that Vegas is the place to indulge and try your luck at the Casinos. 
Q: A family vacation that stands out?
My trip to Andaman and Nicobar Islands has been the most memorable. The serenity, civic sense and pristine beauty touch the right cords on arrival. The 572 odd islands make it indeed magnificent. The mesmerising experience is worth the money and a perfect getaway from the normal hustle and bustle of city life.
Q: Your best holiday with friends?
Ladakh trip has been the best holiday with all my friends. The camaraderie that was built during the trip has enabled us to have wonderful times. We were lucky enough to have access to places that were not open to the general public. The views from 12,000ft. above mean sea level were breathtaking. Pure air, azure blue skies, nature’s spring and the clouds make it the perfect destination and closest to heaven.

Q: Great food you enjoyed and where?
The Barefoot Bayside at Havelock Islands in Andamans is worth mentioning. The smoked lobsters make it one of the best places to indulge in seafood.

Q: What to watch out while travelling?
I would say we should not be hasty travellers and enjoy every bit of our travel.
Q: As a travel buyer, what’s your philosophy?
A well-planned trip is worth the millions. I love collecting souvenirs – they refresh my memories of all the good times.
