Morning stars | The sound of silence, meditation music — How Decimal Technologies CEO Lalit Mehta begins his day

The first 30 minutes of peace and quiet after waking up are a non-negotiable for Lalit Mehta.

 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.  

As an overworked student at IIM-Ahmedabad, Lalit Mehta did not have the luxury of starting his day on his terms. One sleep-deprived morning, he even had an LLTT - Looking London Talking Tokyo - moment when he gave an unrelated answer to a professor’s question.

Mehta is now the CEO of fintech company Decimal Technologies. How he begins his day is in his control. And while he is not fussy about his breakfast, he is particular about 30 minutes of me-time.
