Note to readers: Morning Stars is a series of interviews with achievers across fields about their morning routine and how they get ready for the day ahead. Mornings bring optimism and a fresh start. And how we spend them sets the tone for the day.

Sabeer Bhatia’s latest venture, ShowReel, is mainly targeted towards jobseekers. The app enables a user to have a video conversation with Bhatia, the renowned co-founder of Hotmail. Bhatia asks simple questions to the person, so that that their qualifications and a bit of their personality come through. The user can then send this video with their job application or post it on different platforms.

Morning StarsIn this interaction, we do the asking. We ask Sabeer Bhatia, the 53-year-old BITS Pilani and Stanford alumnus who did with Hotmail for Indian IT what Kapil Dev did for Indian cricket with World Cup 1983, about how he starts his day, and his tips for success.
