I quit my corporate job in 2011, at age 23, and decided to travel the world. I've lived with the White Thai tribe in a remote Vietnamese village, hitch-hiked along Turkey's Black Sea coast, swum with black-tip sharks on Malaysia's east coast, spent a night in the highest inhabited village of the Himalayas, and fallen in love with so many people and places, that I've lost count.
My travel stories have appeared in BBC Travel, National Geographic Traveller, The Times of India and Lonely Planet, among others. I'm a Forbes Travel Guide Correspondent for Delhi and a travel blogger for The Huffington Post. I've been featured as an intrepid female traveller in Business Standard, The Hindu, New Woman Magazine and DNA, and interviewed on All India Radio.
In January 2012, I co-founded India Untravelled, with an aim to introduce travel enthusiasts to responsible travel experiences in rural India.
I love to seek out and travel to offbeat, unexplored places that few have been to, and even fewer have written about. I'm a child of the mountains, born and brought up in their lap. I'm a water baby by sun-sign.
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...
