About Me

Who am I? What is my purpose here?

Without digressing into an overtly philosophical description, which I usually do when I have to ‘describe myself’, here goes. Born in Hyderabad and lived in Bangalore for as long as I can remember(read since class 2). I used to blog when I was in college, but that kind of died down. But here is the new and improved blog!

Wanderings: My escapades have mostly been in and around India. Ever since I was little, my family used to travel to a new destination every year. That has continued to be a part of me : to travel to new places whenever I can. I have been to almost all parts of India. Be it the southernmost tip of Kanyakumari or the northern most expanses of J&K , Pakistan and Chinese borders. From coastal Maharashtra and Gujrat to fish-loving Bengal. If you find an interesting place and want to travel there and want the company of a  fool, give me a buzz!

Foot Power: There was a time when I was avidly into trekking which eventually culminated with a trek to Mt Everest Base Camp. The pre-everest treks have mostly spanned the southern states of Karnataka,Tamil Nadu and Kerala apart from the Himalayas. Treking these days has reduced to climbing the stairs at office or home. 🙂

Adrenaline rushes:  Managed to bungee jump the 6th highest bungee in the world at The Last Resort, Nepal. (160m or  about 550 feet). Rode a bullet over some 3000 odd kilometers.

Photography: Over the last couple of years, I have spent quite some time on this. I think this is a nice avenue to spend some time(and a lot of $$$)  simply because there is so much to learn and photograph!

One day , I shall( hopefully): Bungee Jump, Mount Everest, Ride a bike across Leh & J&K, Ride the trans-siberian railway.Travel on the silk route. Ride a bike from India to UK. Sky-dive. Base jump. Scuba.Spot a tiger in the wild. Write a book.
