Ajith is known as much for his films as for his other passions like aero-modelling, racing, cooking and photography. Off late, he has also become an avid reader. He digs into books that are based on philosophy and really imbibes all those lessons for life. His policy of Live and Let Live is also based on strenuous reading of such philosophical books.
Recently he enjoyed reading a book talking about the teachings of Buddha titled "The Teaching of Buddha". This book is from the Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai, Tokyo which is a society to promote Buddhism all over the world.
