Getting Candid with the BigRockers – Basil Skariah

We know you wanted to meet the next BigRocker after getting candid with Vivek Raval, the last time. This time too we managed to get hold of someone who is equally important to our team. World meet Basil Skariah.


Basil Skariah is the product manager at BigRock and manages the Website Platform along with our team of awesome designers and programmers to ensure that our website is smooth and blazing fast to use. He is a travel buff and you will always find him making plans for his next big trip. Enough introduction, let’s start off with the list of questions to know him better.

What is the wackiest thing you have ever done?
I was in Kochi for Christmas 2012 and decided to take an impromptu trip up north to meet some friends in Jaisalmer. Because of last minute bookings in the middle of the holiday season, part of the journey involved me taking a 12 hour train ride, in the freezing cold, while standing next to a goat the whole time! I think that’s probably the whackiest thing I’ve done. 🙂

If someone gave you a million dollars in cash, how would you spend it?
Buy a house, then a car and then take a year off to travel!

Given an option to change one thing around you, what would that be?
The economic disparity in the country.

What’s the best advice anyone has ever given to you?
Put yourself in the other person’s shoes before you choose to respond.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
Reading people’s minds.

What is the oldest thing in your refrigerator?
I’ve had a sandwich in my freezer for about a year and a half now..

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Knowing there’s a good bar around the corner.. 😛

If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
Wolverine (without all the personal drama he goes through)

What’s the one thing for which you can max-out your credit card?
Travel. Hands down!

What does BigRock mean to you?
It’s my second home.

So that’s Basil for you. If you do end up meeting him at one of his crazy trips, give him a high five, he deserves it. So if you want to know more about him drop a comment below and we will get him to answer you.
