Playing a range of wood-winds instruments such as the clarinet, soprano saxophone, and flute has been a form of relaxation for Nitish Mittersain, Founder and MD, Nazara Technologies. Being a jazz music aficionado, Nitish plays an alto saxophone and is a part of a jazz band called Jazzy Joe and Jazz Junkies that performs in many of Mumbai's clubs and pubs. The 37-year-old shares more on why he finds
music as the food of the gods.

Your inspiration… positivity from my friend and mentor the legendary actor Shammi Kapoor and my grandfather the renowned cardiologist Dr BK GoyalHow you got introduced towards the world of music? Through my mom who is a bhajan singer and has released many albums. I grew up with music being an
