I go to the gym 4-5 days a week and work out for at least one and half hours.

I gym in V3.
Any other specific routine you have to keep yourself fit?
I play Squash regularly and even won the Squash Tournament organized by Gold Gym recently. Playing squash is similar to doing Cardio exercises. Also, I make it a point to jog on the beach regularly.

Very much, as I believe that whatever you eat is what you are.
How were you in your college days and now?
My friends always tell me that I have not changed a bit from my college days. My body and my look is the same as I was 10 years back. And to tell you, all is because of my workouts that I am able to keep this level of fitness in body and mind.
Any particular routine in workouts that you follow?

Not usually, but yes whenever I feel like, I go to an instructor.
