If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

Gandhi because I think he had a compelling vision of the world focused on the right values, and I think it is important to reconnect with that vision.

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

I would create a social enterprise focused on creating methods of accountability for the informal private doctors who provide healthcare to the poor in India and other developing countries.
