Mukesh Bubna’s fitness and adventure mantra: Dragon boating

03 April, 2018

It is said live your life seeking adventure and this CEO has taken this adage to heart. Mukesh Bubna, CEO of Monexo Fintech is a self-admitted adventure and fitness junkie. One of his favourite things to do is to go dragon boating — an activity no less strenuous than pumping iron.

For the uninitiated, dragon boating is a Chinese holiday that commemorates the life and death of the famous Chinese scholar Qu Yuan. Large teakwood boats with dragon heads race on the Pearl River Delta region in China’s Guangdong Province.

“I lived in Hong Kong for seven years and got introduced to dragon boating as a sport. It helped in my upper body core strengthening,” Bubna tells ETPanache. And that’s not all he did with his time there. “There’s a misconception that Hong Kong doesn’t have much scope for hiking. In fact, it offers some great landscapes and hiking trails. That’s how I kept myself fit there,” he says.
