I am a professional writer, translator, a travel journalist. After flirting with journalism, translations and even Zoology for over two decades, I have found my true love in traveling. I spend my time exploring the nooks and crannies of India, though I believe nobody can fully discover this vast country but I have vowed to try anyway! When not traveling, I am persistently writing about my adventures, which range from trekking in one of the most hostile terrains on earth i.e. in Siachen Glacier to snorkeling in sleepy, exotic islands of Andaman and Nicobar. My tales of adventures and encounters regularly appear in reputed publications. And if I am neither traveling nor writing about it, I am spending time at cultural hubs in Delhi, looking for inspiration and meeting fellow travelers, and scrounging the city bookstores & libraries for travelogues. I have always been a mountain child and dream of owning a wooden cottage in the Himalayas with a gigantic library.
