(updated march 2015)
i discovered my love for travel when i started working & suddenly had money that was mine to spend. i didn’t travel much at first, but then in 2008 i took a two month sabbatical from work and travelled all around india. it was a mammoth road / train trip. i traced the ganga from gangotri, went on to haridwar, rishikesh, allahabad, varanasi, kolkata and then watched her empty her water into the bay of bengal at the sunderbans. i then made my way to the south and stayed at chennai, visited temple towns in tamilnadu, meandered my way to goa and then came back home to bombay. it was a round-the-world trip of india. 😀
i was sold – to the excitement, to the thrill and to the joy of personal discovery. two years later, i quit my 9-5 job to chase this passion to write. it wasn’t easy, no one asked me to write for them, and emails to editors got lost in cyber space or i got replies like “you do not fit our requirements.” silence piled up in my inbox.
today, i am a freelance writer and editor. i have written around 12 audio tours for audiocompass.in, published more than 65 articles in national geographic traveller india, lonely planet india, indian express, indian today travel plus, the alternative, talking cranes and unboxed writers.
