What would you be if you were not a Chartered Accountant?

A little difficult to answer as right from my school days, I was aspiring for this. However, during my school days, I had a lot of fascination with IAS. I actually went through the process of the same and found it interesting. So probably, if I would not take up CA, I would have been IAS, serving my country.

If you get one hour to do whatever you like, what would that be?

It depends on which time I get an hour. If it is, I would prefer to read something to improvise and acquire some knowledge and be at par with current happenings. However, in the evening, I would definitely spend that hour on sports and play an additional game.
